Casa Magna Colorado Gran Toro
Casa Magna Colorado Gran Toro cigars have been called Manuel Quesada's greatest innovation. Produced at Nestor Plasencia's Segovia Cigar factory, the blend consists of an all-Nicaraguan leaf recipe grown in Estelí for strength, balanced by sweeter, milder Jalapa leaves. The smoke is full-flavored, and according to one major cigar zine is a full-flavored cigar, full of rich coffee notes and balanced by a cedary sweetness with a hint of raisins.

Received the Casa Magna Colorado Gran Toro as part of the cigar club offering for April. Being already a lover of Nicaraguan cigars, I eagerly fired this one up for an evening's fare. The expected earthy, spicy, black-peppered tones are all here. This big stick gives out great clouds of chewy smoke in a smooth medium to full body format. A little pricier than some, it ranks right up with the best Nic puros for satisfying taste. Construction also is excellent. I'd like to try some more conventional sizes in this blend (corona, robusto, churchill) because this Gran Toro is HUGE, at least ninety minutes, more time than I can afford, even for a great smoke.
