Tres Reyes: Scents from Paradise
Rum, coffee and habanos, the three kings of the Cuban market, share space in the same store, which, with the same name (Tres Reyes), offers, in the Villa Clara district of Remedios, a wide range of 100% Cuban products.
Open from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm, from Mondays to Saturdays, and on Sundays just during mornings, this store sells the most authentic and selected national rums, extracted from the sugar stem, and aged in wooden barrels for more than 15 years.
Havana Club, Cubay, Mulata, Santiago, Legendario (the most wanted one in this store), are some of the brands you might take home or enjoy here, in an air-conditioned salon, where you can also, if you want, smoke a Cuban cigar, cultivated in one of Pinar del Río’s tobacco fields, or perhaps even here, in Remedios.
The smoke from the Cohíba, Montecristo, Partagás, Romeo y Julieta, Vegueros, among many others, is well-kept in a big room, its walls and floor built with Cuban cedar wood, for the aromas not to vanish and also for keeping the necessary humidity and temperatures this product requires.
In Tres Reyes, located on Máximo Gómez St. And Pi Margal, a twister man elaborates the cigars as you wish, with the thickness and length you ask for. This way, you will presume of smoking a unique cigar.
Cuban smokers say while you inhale the cigar’s aroma, a cup of coffee seems to be the perfect complement. Ours is very strong, dark, preferably hot, and served just for a few gulps, due to its purity. Here you will be able to feel all these emotions; you just have to ask for a cup, or, if you prefer to share with your closers the strength of the Cubita, Serrano or La Llave brands, you can also buy.
After having visited Tres Reyes, you can say it is place for cultivating harmful vices, but for the record, we just suggest a little taste. Otherwise, it is as if you would have never come.
