Sample of Saka
For those of you who don't know, Steve Saka used to be a master blender over at Drew Estate and helped produce some top-notch blends under that brand. Today, he blends with Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust and since the company’s induction into the industry in 2015, they have already put out some highly-rated blends that are grabbing enthusiast’s attention all over. The Muestra de Saka line of cigars is an interesting one. Mustra de Saka Translates to "Saka's Sample". This is a line of cigars that are limited release blends that are all different and meant to reflect the blending mechanisms of Saka himself.
The Nacatamale is the second release in the line and it’s produced at the Joya de Nicaragua factory in Nicaragua. When Saka started working on this blend, he challenged himself to use the old style 'farm blending' where all the filler tobaccos come from the same farm. Today most cigar blends are comprised of tobaccos from many different countries and farms to create complex and satisfying tastes. All the fillers in Nacatamale come from a farm in Jalapa Nicaragua with a Nicaraguan binder and Ecuadorian Habano wrapper on top. The result is a complex medium to full bodied cigar with a notes of deep earthiness, pepper, caramel, and a rich, tobacco sweetness. They come packaged elegantly in individual coffins.
