Mi Querida Triqui Traca (pronounced “me kay-ree-dah tree-kee trah-ka”) is arguably our boldest cigar released to date.

“Triqui Traca” is local Nicaraguan slang for oversized firecrackers that are connected by fuses in a long serial string. These explosive ropes are then laid down the center of the 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 ignited on the celebration of important religious and national holidays. This cultural icon is an ideal moniker for the power and explosive nature of this cigar.

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 fuller bodied smoking experience.

Mi Querida Triqui Traca is handcrafted at the recently renovated NACSA cigar factory under the stewardship of their new Master Cigarmaker Raul Disla at my direction. Please understand, this is not an ideal smoking experience for all, but rather it is a liga intended for those who crave the heaviest of maduro smokes.


Intense richness and bold tastes of earth, dark chocolate and bitter espresso. This is a very heavy cigar — only for those who crave the boldest of maduro cigars. Some cigar smokers will find Triqui Traca to be an unsettling smoke (you’ve been forewarned.)
