Today we are reviewing the Mi Querida Black PapaSaka from Dunbarton Tobacco  and Trust.  Dunbarton Tobacco and Trust released the Mi Querida Black SakaKhan  last year at the  2022 PCA Trade Show which was met with a lot of excitement.  The cigar ended up many Top Cigars of the Year list and was a huge seller in cigar shops.  With the success of the SakaKhan, Dunbarton Tobacco and Trust decided to release a new Mi Querida Black in a  corona gorda size which they named PapaSaka. The PapaSaka features a very similar blend with the notable difference being the Honduran tobacco in the SakaKhan being replaced with tobacco from the Dominican Republic  in the PapaSaka.  Let’s look at the blend.

Mi Querida Black PapaSaka

From Dunbarton Tobacco  and Trust:

Mi Querida Black (pronounced “me kay-ree-dah”) is the ultimate execution of our family of broadleaf ligas.

“Black” is the third iteration of this style of blend within our Mi Querida family of puros. It retains the soul of our two other ligas within the line, however with the addition of a very select grade of Honduran grown Habano Seed tripa incorporated into the blend. Only the finest materials are utilized from the exhaustively “creamed” tripas, to the very best grade of dark Connecticut-grown Broadleaf capas with acute attention paid to their craftsmanship. Robust, rich, and decadently satisfying, the Limited Production Mi Querida Black is the apex of broadleaf cigars.

Mi Querida Black is handcrafted at NACSA cigar factory under the stewardship of their Master Cigar maker Raul Disla at my direction. Packed in an elegant box that expresses from the outside the richness of the blend inside. As always, the pace of its production is being dictated by the tobaccos themselves and therefore it will be limited in its availability via Select Purveyors for the foreseeable future.
