Mi Quierda Firecracker

 
mq1October 8th, 2018
 
For those of you familiar with the 2 Guys Smoke Shop vitola, you’ll expect the short review that follows.

This cigar looks and smells almost identical to the regular Mi Quierda line, except that it measures 3.5 inches long with a 2 inch tail off of the cap.

Initial flavors are earthy and cedar-like with some of those cloying '(Steve) Saka (the cigar's blender) notes' we all love. The retro-hale is lightly peppery and smooth, and the burn is perfect.

The first third is excellent if short. This is a very full-bodied cigar. Some pepper appears in the main flavor profile and remains in the retro-hale.

During the second third, the flavors intensify in a very good way. It’s obvious that Steve specified the blend. Good news everyone... 2 Guys has agreed to let Saka add this vitola to his regular line, just without the trademark 'fuse'.
 
I am very happy that I got my hands on some of these before they sold out. Now, if I could only get some of those R-something C-something Firecrackers that sold out before I woke up on the morning they were released. But enough about that. This is a Mi Quierda review.
 
mq2Also over the second third, some extra spice sneaks into the flavor profile. The flavors of the cigar are incredible. And the Mi Quierda burns on evenly like a champ, with a solid ash that will not let go.

Approaching the final inch, the ash finally lets go. Meanwhile, the flavor profile has expanded to include some oak notes. The burn remains perfect throughout.
 
This is an ideal cigar to light up when you have only a short time to smoke. And it's even compatible with unbeatable temperatures. I rate it a 9.9/10. Joe Bob says, "Check it out."
