Like its predecessor the Molotov, the 6x60 Howitzer uses the Quesada 35th Anniversary blend. it is the only Q D'Etat line that is not a Dominican puro. The entire Q D'Etat line is about fighting for our rights, which is why every cigar is named after a weapon. Only 1000 boxes have been produced, and we have a few available right now, so get yours while you can!
