By now you've certainly heard of the Jalapa Valley in Nicaragua. It is known as one of the premier tobacco growing regions in the world, because it produces excellently flavorful tobacco. The Quesada Jalapa cigar was created to be similar to the popular Quesada Selección Espana, which was only released for the European market, but introduced a special Nicaraguan twist.
The wrapper has been switched with a special wrapper grown in Jalapa, Nicaragua by the Placencia’s. The growing of this beautiful and limited claro wrapper started as an experimental crop from 2002. The wrappers are shade grown to produce a smooth mild to medium-bodied cigar with refined flavor and without the heavy spice found on most wrappers grown in this region. The fillers remain the same as the Quesada Selección Espana, which is comprised of a Dominican binder and a three country filler blend of U.S.A Connecticut Broadleaf, Nicaraguan and Dominican tobaccos.
The Quesada Jalapa cigars was produced in limited quantities of only 1,000 ten count boxes in three sizes.
