||Let’s get three words right out of the way: dark, oily, toothy. As soon as I slid the first sample out of its cellophane sleeve, those three words came barreling into my mind. I could possibly add veiny to the list, though I think that might be an overstatement, especially compared to the other three, but it certainly is applicable ... I'm happy to report that the cigar lives up to seemingly whatever buzz was built up around it. While it's not perfect and would certainly benefit from a bit more time to dry out, the flavors are serious and complex, upfront and aggressive while only occasionally overstepping, and rarely leaving the palate wanting more or less than what is being offered. When the situation calls for a cigar that's got more gravitas than what Sobremesa offers, Mi Querida is one that will almost certainly do the trick.
