Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust is ready to release their second blend within the Muestra de Saka brand initiated by former Drew Estate President Steve Saka. The new Muestra de Saka Nacatamale is named after the spanish word for “sample”.
“Muestra de Saka is just that. A line of unique blends and vitolas made in extremely limited quantities that reflect the blending machinations of myself. To smoke a Muestra de Saka is to embark upon a journey with me in which I greatly welcome your companionship” states Founder and Master Blender, Steve Saka.
He continues to share, “The Nacatamale is the second frontmark in the line. What made this cigar a unique blending challenge was I went “viejo granja” style with it. For over a century most cigars’ entire filler recipes were comprised of just one farm’s tobacco and any complexity was introduced by extremely careful leaf processing, selection and positioning within the bunch. Whereas these days as we have hundreds of ingredients to work and blend with to create interesting and satisfying ligas. So, the challenge was to see if I could make an “old farm” style liga that could hold its own with the modern blends created today. This cigar is considerably more robust than the Exclusivo and since this puro’s tripa are all from just one small, independent farm in Jalapa, Nicaragua, I will not be disclosing the name of the vega. However, I will say it is simply sublime.”
The Nacatamale comes in cedar coffins within a 7-ct box and will retail for $111.65 per box ($15.95 per cigar). Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust is currently taking pre-orders for the Muestra de Saka Nacatamale. The deadline for pre-orders is July 14th, 2017. The anticipated ship date of pre-ordered cigars is late October 2017.
