Press Release: Quesada Announces Oktoberfest Krone

Quesada OktoberfestDoral, Florida – S.A.G. Imports announces Krone, the latest and final size of the Quesada Oktoberfest.  Made for national distribution, the all-new Krone is a 5 x 43 corona.  The term “Krone” is the german translation for “corona”, which is the spanish word for “crown.”  Only 500 boxes will be made for sale at the IPCPR convention this coming July. 




MSRP will be set at $7.25.  Here is a list of 2013’s Oktoberfest sizes and production:

  • Uber (6 x 65):  1,000 boxes of 20
  • Das Boot (6 x 52 torpedo):  500 boxes
  • Kaiser Ludwig (6 x 49 box press):  500 boxes
  • Bavarian (5.5 x 52): 1,000 boxes
  • Kurz (4 x 50):  500 boxes
  • Krone (5 x 43):  500 boxes

When asked about the new size, Terence Reilly had this to say: 

“We have had a lot of aficionados show excitement for the Oktoberfest but felt the brand lacked a smaller vitola which they enjoy smoking most. Consequently, we felt a corona would give us the one size we were missing in our quest to ensure we can meet the needs of both the more traditional vitola smokers as well as those who prefer the bigger ring gauge cigars which are presently very popular.”
