Casa Magna Domus Magnus Cigars
Casa Magna Domus Magnus
Casa Magna took the world by surprise when Cigar Aficionado named it the top cigar of 2008 beating out the likes of Fuente, Padrón and Pepín. While there have been small additions to the core line itself, there really hasn't been a big splash for the past three years, until now. The Casa Magna Domus Magnus cigar was released at the 2011 IPCPR show, the first major addition to the partnership between Manuel Quesada and Nestor Plasencia. Casa Magna is blended by Manuel Quesada and made at Plasencia Cigars S.A. The Domus Magnus project was originally a limited release of one-hundred thousand cigars split between two Optimus and Primus vitolas. The insane popularity of these cigars and apparently just enough tobacco left over for another 30,000 or so cigars led to a 2nd release of the Domus cigars, only this time they were released in 3 different vitolas than the initial release, limited to 1,000 boxes of each. They were the Centuriones, Praetores and Bellatores.
Now Casa Magna is back and at it again with the Domus Magnus II cigars. They’re out of the original Domus Magnus wrapper leaf but they’re using the same Jalapa Sun Grown leaf from the 2007 crop this time around. They’ll now be a regular production cigar and that is great news for smokers everywhere. For now, only the original Optimus and Primus vitolas will be available but it’s always possible they will add more options for us in the future. The flavor notes of the original Domus are present with a mix of acidic citric sweetness, pepper and chocolate and with a lingering caramel coffee note to balance it all out. Many bloggers have rated this cigar in their Top 25, Top 10 and even Top 5 lists over the last 2 years and it isn’t hard to see why. Give them a shot and we’re sure you’ll be waiting to see what Casa Magna comes up with for Domus Magnus III.
