Ever since I fell in love with the Domus Magnus last year I’ve been on this journey tasting all things under the Quesada umbrella. One of the newer releases is the Q D’etat Series. The first of what is to be three releases is the Quesada Q D’etat Molotov. An interesting shaped Dominican puro perfecto where the ring gauge is listed in three sizes 38/58/44. If you watched our 16 Minutes with Terence Reilly interview you will know that the Q D’etat Series was created as a protest against increased restrictions on cigar smoking and higher tobacco taxes. The next scheduled release is the Howitzer and not much is known yet about the third one yet.
Off camera Terence told me that the Molotov was like smoking three cigars. At first I didn’t really get what he was saying. I thought he was blowing some marketing smoke at me but after smoking the three I picked up at his event and then getting more afterwards, I totally understand what he was describing. Its quite an interesting smoke to see how the Molotov evolves and how the three ring gauges come into play. I liked the Quesada Q D’etat Molotov. I had to babysit the burn which was a bit annoying but expected considering its unique perfecto shape. I also had to slow down my normal smoking pace which was hard to do. The Molotov can’t be rushed. The predominate earthy, sweet woodsy and shifting palate sensations were enjoyable and right up my alley. For me though, it was hard for me to remember to slow down so the Molotov wasn’t really my speed but can definitely see several of you out there (@waltw) really enjoying it.
Its been awhile since I’ve done a giveaway. With baseball season ready to kick into full gear I’m giving away one (1) Quesada Q D’etat Molotov, one (1) Quesada Serie Limitada 35th Anniversary and one (1) Casa Magna Domus Magnus Limitada (my 2011 Cigar of The Year). All you have to do is leave a comment with your prediction of who will win the World Series. If you’re not a baseball fan, just leave a comment and you’re in to.
