Steve Saka and his work at Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust has become a staple in the boutique space in the industry for years. Blends like Mi Querida, Mi Querida Triqui Traca, and Sin Compromiso have been making their way into humidors across the world because of their flavorful and bold profiles, and rounding out the Mi Querida Trilogy is Mi Querida Black.
The blend starts with a dark Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper overtop a rich San Andres binder, and finished with a blend of filler tobaccos from the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, and Honduras. Notes of leather, oak, and earth lead the charge, followed by a healthy dose of black pepper, and a welcomed natural sweetness from the Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper that rounds out this full-bodied gem. This blend is in high demand, and rightly so - Mi Querida Black may be Steve Saka's best work to date.
