At the 2019 IPCPR Trade Show, Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust and owner Steve Saka will showcase the Mi Querida Triqui Traca. It’s an extension to the existing Mi Querida line.
“Mi Querida Triqui Traca, pronounced ‘me kay-ree-dah tree-kee trah-ka’, is arguably our boldest cigar released to date,” shares Founder and Master Ligador Steve Saka in a press release. Adding, “At its core, it remains our quintessential Mi Querida blend with its earthy, sweet broadleaf notes, but with the incorporation of a couple refinements. The capa has been switched from the traditional Connecticut Broadleaf Mediums to the rarer No. 1 Dark corona leaves plus a unique, high octane ligero grown in the Dominican Republic has also been introduced into the liga. The resulting cigar retains its inherent sweet loam and chocolate characteristics, yet delivers a significantly heavier smoking experience.”
Saka explains, “’Triqui Traca’ is Nicaraguan slang for oversized firecrackers that are connected by fuses in a long serial string. These explosive ropes are then laid down in the center of a street and sometimes stretch multiple blocks. Ignited from one end, they explode in a cascading line of powerful concussions and blinding light down the entire length of the street. Triqui Traca are often lit in celebration of important religious and national holidays. This cultural icon is an ideal moniker for the explosive nature of this cigar.”
The Mi Querida Trique Traca will be introduced in two formats: No 552 (5 x 52) and No 648 (6 x 48). To differentiate the cigars from the existing Mi Querida offerings, the cigars will feature a red band (as opposed to a blue band found on the existing line)and chevron. The cigars will be presented in 20 count boxes with pricing ranging from $10.75 to $11.75.
Production will be limited due to tobacco constraints. The first ship date is targeted for September 2019.
The 2019 IPCPR Trade Show opens June 29th, 2019 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
