The Casa Magna cigar was named Cigar of the Year by Cigar Aficionado in 2008. It is a Nicaraguan puro using leaves from both Esteli and the Jalapa Valley. The Robusto garnered an unbelievable rating of 93 points, which is made even more special given it's LOW price tag. Created by two cigar industry superstars, Manuel Quesada and Nestor Plascencia, the Casa Magna certainly delivers in the bang for your buck department.
It has a very earthy flavor profile which shifts on it's own over the course of the cigar with highlights of creaminess, almond butter, sweet cherries, caramel, warm spices, cedar, and leathery notes all join the earthen profile. This Casa Magna has many nuanced flavor notes and one really needs to pay attention while smoking to taste them all.
Any cigar rated #1 by Cigar Aficionado is one that you should try but even more so when it is a stick that just about anyone can get their hands on. The Casa Magna is pretty much a sure thing.
