Mi Querida Triqui Traca
''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. 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. Mi Querida Triqui Traca will be offered to Select Purveyors and will be initially available in only two formats: No. 552 - 5.00 x 52 and the No. 648 - 6.00 x 48. The cigars will feature a red band and chevron on the box corner to easily identify them from the core Mi Querida liga. Initial availability of these cigars will be extremely limited due to tobacco constraints.
