Quesada comes with new cigars. Two new cigars to be precise and both will debut at the PCA Convention & Trade Show. This years’ show will take place in Las Vegas from July 10 to 13.


Ten years ago, the Quesada family released a cigar inspired by the famous Oktoberfest in Munchen, Germany. The cigar is a seasonal release and pairs well with the Marzen-style beer that is so popular during those massive beer festivals.

To celebrate 10 years of Quesada Oktoberfest there is a new blend. A blend made with consumer feedback in mind. It features a Mexican San Andres wrapper. The rest of the tobacco is all Dominican. The blend will be available in three sizes. A 5 ½ x52 Bavarian, a 6×52 Das Boot, and a 6×65 Uber.

We are more than excited to present this year’s Oktoberfest edition which in my opinion will be the best Oktoberfest cigar ever,” says Manuel “Manolo” Quesada Jr., president of Quesada Cigars, in a press release. “Feedback from customers attention to detail has brought us to this blend. It’s going to be great.”

The cigars come from the factory of the Quesada’s in the Dominican Republic, Quesada’s Tabacos de Exportación Inc. (TABADEX). In the past, most of the Quesada Oktoberfest were made there too. Although for some years and blends Quesada reached out to the Plasencia family in Nicaragua.
