A Staunchly built offering of stoic performance. Oily-cum-oilier leaf/mouf. Black pepper-forward hardwoods up-on a leathery manure under-belly with caramelized molasses/root beer and espresso twixts. A hither and thither bittersweet chocolate, heavy on the vanilla-addition. An interesting pale fruit displays on the far-off finish. Verily 10# of pipe(ish)-baccy in 5# cigar.
FINAL GRADE: A-

"The Taco Bell Gordita Supreme® may be shaped like a taco, stuffed like a taco, and tasty like a taco, but the Gordita isn’t a taco." Taco Bell
"Mi Querida is delightfully lush and full bodied on the palate offering an extremely satisfying experience for the most passionate of cigar smokers." Dunbarton Cigars
"When Dunbarton Tobacco and Trust launched Mi Querida in 2016, it was primarily sold in four formats. At the same time, the company offered several other sizes that were more limited and not actively marketed. Today company founder Steve Saka announced that one of those sizes, the 4 x 48 Mi Querida Gordita will now be regularly offered."

This is the third Mi Querida Gordita I have smoked -- the first two showed some unsettled strength via a nicotine which had me so high as to spot a kite flying a tick lower than I, muttering under its breath, "Boy-o, is that fella high." This hath settled in a couple weeks humidor-time and now it simply unsettled my light-weight'd self. In short, it was unsettled, now only I am unsettled. Big difference, there. Please pass the sugar, sir. I shall supply the shovel.
