Quesadas and Garcia Team Up for New Cigar Line

Quesadas and Garcia Team Up for New Cigar Line

Three of the most high-profile young ladies in the cigar business have collaborated to create a new, limited-edition cigar called Tres Reynas, which translates to “three queens.” The new project is the brainchild of Quesada sisters Patricia and Raquel of S.A.G. Imports in the Dominican Republic, along with Janny Garcia of My Father Cigars Inc. in Nicaragua.

“Janny is like a sister to us,” said Raquel Quesada. “We always have such a great time together, so we thought it would be fun to make a cigar that would represent our special bond. It is a project we have been discussing for a while and are so excited to finally be able to share it with the world.”

Janny echoes the sentiment of their friendship adding “We have been working on this for some time and we couldn't be more excited. This cigar means a lot to us and brought both families closer together.”

Tres Reynas will be unveiled at the upcoming IPCPR trade show and consists of an all-Nicaraguan binder and filler draped in dark Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper. Blended to be a medium-bodied cigar, Tres Reynas has a signature taste that, according to S.A.G.’s Terence Reilly “is unlike anything either family produces separately.”

My Father makes the cigar in Nicaragua, but Quesada’s family company, S.A.G., will handle the distribution. Rolling has already begun.

Retailing in the $7 to $8 range, the brand comes in three sizes: Gordo, 6 inches by 60 ring, Torpedo, 6 by 54 and Robusto, 5 by 50. Only 1,000 boxes of each size are scheduled for production.
