I have Isaac Miller (aka @The_Nothing_) The Stash Smoke Shop in Milwaukie, Oregon to thank for this cigar find. Unbeknownst to me this cigar has some history behind it that has been shared on several cigar review websites. The important notes being that this cigar is a creation and collaboration of Janny Garcia, Patricia Quesada, and Raquel Quesada. Hence, Tres Reynas: “Three Queens.” The cigar is made at the My Father factory in Nicaragua.
A snip and cut and my cold draw delivers dark chocolate so much so that I keep drawing on my unlit cigar just to make sure and confirm that this is what I’m tasting… #Love!
Once lit, this dark, oily Connecticut Broadleaf wrapped cigar provides deep rich earthy barnyard tobacco with dark chocolate (mocha), leather and coffee making way for the addition of the perfect amount of pepper spice to compliment the experience.
At the last third everything ramps up to a rich deep earthy finish with dark chocolate, leather and espresso paving the way from this very smooth (aged) tobacco flavored cigar.
The Quesada Cigars Tres Reynas is a winner for my TupperDor. I see that they have a dark cigar band now (post-2012), so, now I know that the Tres Reynas that I currently have are well aged.
This cigar today lasted over two hours.
Today was my first time with the Tres Reynas cigar by Quesada Cigars. This cigar was brought to my attention by Isaac Miller (aka @The_Nothing_) at The Stash Smoke Shop in Milwaukie, Oregon and seconded by Cigar Sensei (aka @bmwMark) from Pacific Motorsports.
The long and the short of it, I texted Isaac as soon as I finished my first Tres Reynas cigar and claimed the rest of what he had in stock. #Mine!
A snip and a cut off the tapered Belicoso-Cap and my cold draw provided slightly sweet fruit and chocolate. Once lit, earthy tobacco came to me; I’m not detecting any spice at this point yet. I’m going to have to snip a little more off my cap. The draw is a bit tight for me this morning; I don’t think I cut enough off the cap.
A clip off the tapered cap and my cigar is behaving like a cigar with “My Father Cigars” DNA should.
At an inch in, the pepper shows upon the retrohale… there it is… Creamy smooth smoke has now become this cigars signature at this early stage carrying flavors of coffee, earth and a bit of cocoa in the background.
I’m at the final third after 90-minutes and baking spices with the rich earthy flavors and some leather are there for me; the nice mainstream of flavors with the correct amount of pepper spice on the retrohale.
#SakamotoHappy. I think I’ll get some more of these very soon.
