Just in time for this year’s Oktoberfest is another Oktoberfest-themed cigar release from Quesada. Quesada’s 2017 Oktoberfest cigar is done in conjunction with Carolina-based retailer The Cigar Shop and will come in a unique triangular size known as the Bayern. This cigar will have a limited production and will be made available exclusively at The Cigar Shop’s locations in Monroe, NC, and Myrtle Beach, SC.
“It’s always exciting to work with our retail partners on store exclusive editions of cigars. This project was particularly enjoyable because it involved the Quesada Oktoberfest, which is my favorite brand we produce. I can’t wait to hear the feedback on this cigar, as the vitola is one that really highlights the nuances of the Oktoberfest 2017 blend,” said Terence Reilly, General Manager of Quesada Cigars.
“Over the past few years, we have gotten to know the Quesadas and have come to consider them family. We were honored when we were selected to become the home to the first Casa Magna lounge, and now are even more honored to be the exclusive home to the Quesada Oktoberfest Bayern. We look forward to sharing this cigar with our friends and customers,” said Todd Johnson, co-owner of The Cigar Shop.
Bayern is the German name for Bavaria, which is one of sixteen states in Germany. Bayern is the state where the Oktoberfest celebrations first originated. For Quesada’s Oktoberfest Bayern, a Cuban-style pyramid shaped vitola based on the classic Fonseca Triangular format was used. It featured a Dominican blend that was tweaked to work with this unique vitola that ultimately delivers a one-of-a-kind smoking experience.
“The Triangular has been such an iconic vitola that has such as rich history. The Oktoberfest has been an enormously popular line with our customers and now we have an opportunity to bring the Triangular size to this great line. It’s going to make this year’s Oktoberfest celebrations even better”, added Mark Boley, co-owner of The Cigar Shop.
Quesada Oktoberfest Bayern measures 6 x 51/58/60. It comes in a 10-count box with a SRP of $8.79 per cigar. Only 200 boxes were produced. Cigar enthusiasts can order the cigar online at thecigarshop.com.
