Tres Reynas is a new release from Quesada this year, and it honors Patricia and Raquel Quesada, and Janny Garcia. The three consider themselves sisters, and that is why they released a cigar called Tres Reynas. While it is translated as three queens, and not three sisters, they are really three prominent females in the industry, and the title is very appropriate. Janny Garcias has had her personal first release this year, La Dueña, and Patricia and Raquel have been involved heavily in the business for Quesada for several years. The cigar is distibuted by Quesada, but for this release they decided to have the cigar made in Esteli, Nicaragua by My Father Cigars. Production will be limited for each size, and there will be three vitolas produced.
Lighting up the cigar it begins by showing tons of great flavors, and it is a great start. I am getting a nice bit of chocolate notes, and it is accompanied by some sweet spices and even some red pepper notes. There are some creamy notes as well to it, and I would say it is familiar to Mexican hot chocolate in flavors. The cigar is constructed wonderfully, and it is producing a perfect burn line with a very dark charcoal colored ash. My Father Cigars has always had great production, but the smokes I have gotten from them lately have been amazing. I would say the strength level is just over the medium body level, and fairly close to medium full in body.

In the final third the flavor profile is fairly similar to the second third, but it is so enjoyable I don't really want it to change. The espresso bean notes really were a great addition to the flavors from before, and you can really pick them out in this third. Those red pepper notes have tones down some in this third, but are still in the background adding some complexity to it all. The cocoa and rich earth notes are enjoyable in this third as well, and the sweet spice finish is amazing. I am finding that the cigar is finishing at a strength level that is between medium and medium full, and the construction is still top notch. That ash has kept that dark gray color, and the finish on the cigar is cool and flavorful.
