There’s a cigar being made which will be a collaboration between the Quesada and García families. Sisters, Patricia and Raquel Quesada are the daughters of Manual Quesada, owner of the brand Fonseca among others. They have attached their names with Janny Garcia who is the daughter of Pepin Garcia, owner of Don Pepin/My Father Cigars. The name of the cigar will be Tres Reynas, which means Three Queens.
The girls “want to be known as strong independent women in the industry” that they say is “dominated by men”, this cigar may be the attempt to prove it otherwise.
The cigars will be produced by Pepin Garcia’s My Father Cigars Nicaragua, but distributed by the Manual Quesada SAG Imports. One father has the cigar made and the other will handle the distribution.
My question is this, who gets the money? If it’s anything like my house…it will be the girls!
This cigar is not the first cigar that was a collaboration between two companies. Litto “La Flor Dominicana” Gomez and Christian “Camacho” Eiora once made a cigar blend for each other’s brand called FaceOff. Neither took off and it was short lived.
The Tres Reynas cigars will be available in three sizes: 6 x 60, 6 x 54 Torpedo and 5 x 50 Robusto. The Blend is reported to have a Nicaraguan filler and binder with a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper. This will be another limited release that we have grown accustomed to from that is made by the Garcia’s. One thousand boxes of each size are being made, moderately priced between $7-8 per cigar. Go get’em girls!
