http://www.SmokingHotCigarChick.com In this video I’m enjoying Cigar Aficionado’s Cigar of the Year for 2008.
This is the Casa Magna Colorado Robusto. It’s a very tasty medium-bodied smoke. It’s peppery and earthy with some sweet caramel notes and a hint of coffee.
Size is 5.5 inches x 52 gauge. Wrapper, binder and filler are all Nicaraguan, so it’s a “puro.”
Many people think this cigar came out of nowhere to top Cigar Aficionado’s list last year but the reality is, this smoke was designed and made by Manuel Quesada and Nestor Plasencia. Both are pretty heavy hitters in the cigar world.
Mr Quesada is head of Matasa, makers of Fonseca and Cubita brands in the Dominican Republic. The Quesada family has been involved in tobacco since the 19th century in Cuba.
Mr Plasencia is one of the largest growers of fine tobacco in the world and makes cigars in Honduras and Nicaragua.
It’s not a surprise that these gentleman would craft such a fine cigar. What is surprising is the price point: about $5.50 US.
That price is what I believe contributed to the frenzy surrounding this cigar earlier this year. The past few years, Cigar Aficionado has picked either $20-25 cigars or Cubans for the coveted prize, thus excluding many casual smokers. But at only $5.50, who wouldn’t be eager to try it?
Now that I’m seeing more Casa Magnas in cigar shops, I thought it was time to review it. Go out and get one.

As always, ladies, I encourage you to try a fine cigar. And gentlemen, real women love a confident man with a cigar in hand.
