Today’s cigar reviews on Puff.com will take a closer look at the Tres Reynas Torpedo and the 1502 Black Gold Toro.

Tres Reynas Torpedo  

Tres Reynas, which translates to “Three Queens” in English, is the result of a collaboration between the Quesada and Garcia cigar families.  The name comes from the three ladies who helped put the project together: Patricia Quesada, Raquel Quesada, and Janny Garcia.  The cigar made its debut in 2012 at the IPCPR show.  I just recently heard about it, and through a solid recommendation, I decided to give the Tres Reynas Torpedo a try.  With two solid cigar families standing behind it, I’m feeling pretty confident that I’m about to experience a superb stogie.

The Tres Reynas Torpedo measures 6 x 54.  Other sizes in the line include the 5 x 50 Robusto and the 6 x 60 Gordo.  The cigar has a filler and binder both made up of Nicaraguan tobacco.  The wrapper, meanwhile, is of the Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro variety.  Its strength is listed as medium to full-bodied.

The first thing I notice when looking at this Tres Reynas is its nice Torpedo shape.  It’s one of my favorite cigar formats to smoke, and it appears as if it’s executed perfectly here.  The Torpedo has a dark, oily wrapper with few thin veins.  The cigar feels firm in my hand and has no soft spots.  A small decorative band sits near the head that display the 3 Reynas name over a white and gold color scheme.  As I inspect the cigar more closely, I notice a pre-light aroma that’s spicy, while the cold taste is of chocolate.

In terms of the burn of the Tres Reynas Torpedo, I have zero complaints.  The cigar lights easily and provides a draw that is just right.  It’s not too loose, nor too stiff.  The white ash is tight and lasts well over an inch in length.  I don’t have to perform any touch-ups throughout the entire smoking experience.  No re-lights are needed.  The thick smoke that’s produced is a pleasure to take in.  I place the total smoking time at around 90 minutes.
