Mi Querida by Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust

04/23/2019
Connecticut Broadleaf, Dunbarton Tobacco and Trust, Mi Querida, Steve Saka, Nicaragua, I declare after smoking many of Steve Saka’s Mi Querida cigars by Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust that this is officially one of the “Best” in my humble beginner opinions. This excellent cigar stays in the rotation and in the Puff Sumo TupperDor.

After a snip and a cut, I’m inhaling familiar flavors and aromas (coffee, cocoa, something sweet [caramel]) . The Mi Querida hits the “Sweet Spot” and is just simply one of those cigars you have to have on a regular basis (cigar rotation).

Deep rich earthy tobacco is in this dream cigar. It hasn’t failed me yet. At the first third dark chocolate lingers on the back of my tongue, pepper spice is dull on my retrohale, and that’s fine with me this morning.

At the second third comes silky smooth smoke, and then, here comes the pepper spice… along with the developing flavors of rich and complex earthy tobacco and dark chocolate and leather… very nice!

Is this cigar reminding me of the Red Meat Lovers cigar, a rare and special blend of a few months ago?

Anyway, the Mi Querida cigars by Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust is officially at the top of my list of cigar discoveries for me.

Connecticut Broadleaf, Dunbarton Tobacco and Trust, Mi Querida, Steve SakaThe first time I smoked the Dunbarton Tobacco and Trust Mi Querida was almost 3-months ago to the date. It’s time to get reacquainted.

When I first held the Connecticut Broadleaved Mi Querida, I knew immediately that there was something handsomely familiar about this rugged dark firmly packed cigar.

A straight snip and a cut and dark smooth rich earthy tobacco fill my senses. Once lit, creamy cocoa, earth, and coffee flavors ride in on volumes of smoke. A half-inch in and I’m not getting any pepper spice on the retrohale as I have heard others claim.

This is a beautiful looking cigar. I could take pictures of this all day long. Firmly packed perfectly constructed Connecticut Broadleaf Wrapper. This cigar feels great in my hand and delivers a perfect follow up to my greasy Patty Melt lunch. And, it finally dawns on me why I’m so fond and familiar with the Dunbarton Tobacco and Trust Mi Querida.

This stout but smooth complex cigar has the DNA (lineage) of “those” other Connecticut Broadleaf cigars I’ve become so fond of lately. This cigar is probably not meant for beginners, so be forwarded.
