Last summer, Quesada Cigars and the Placencia family took the Fonseca brand in a totally new direction when Quesada announced a new line using all Nicaraguan tobacco for the first time.
The Fonseca Nicaragua is the new regular production cigars are being rolled at the Plasencia Cigars S.A. factory in Estelí, Nicaragua and is made up of tobacco from three of Nicaragua’s four different growing regions—Estelí, Jalapa and Ometepe. It is covered in a Nicaraguan criollo ’98 wrapper from the Jalapa region, while the binder and filler tobaccos hail from the Estelí and Ometepe regions of the county. There are three vitolas so far, all of which are packaged in 20-count boxes. Two of the sizes are round, while the Petit Corona is box-pressed.
