IPCPR 2017 – Dunbarton Tobacco and Trust – Blind Man’s Puff

This year the only *new* line Steve Saka was showing off was the Todos Las Dias.

“Todos Las Dias is my personal Spanglish translation meaning “All the Days.” The workers at Joya de Nicaraguan often cringe at my casual butchering of their mother tongue, but in my opinion cigars are far more than a grammar lesson to abide, they are the physical manifestation of a feeling and of an experience. TLD embodies the classic bold flavors that represent the heart of their soil’s peppery tobaccos and the labor of their always working hands. For me, this spicy Nicaraguan puro reflects no pretentious airs or any of that “notes of pencil lead with a hint of fennel” nonsense. It is an honest, hardworking cigar intended to be smoked by men who know what it means to be a cigar smoker and never give a damn about what others think,” states the creator, Steve Saka.

Blind Cigar Review: Southern Draw | Rose of Sharon Toro Score 90%

Blind Cigar Review: Southern Draw | Rose of Sharon Toro

“This was one fantastic cigar! It smells like baked bread and a syrupy sweetness before even lighting it. Then when you light it you continue to get that sweetness along with some nuts, and oatmeal. This cigar would pair well with morning coffee, and I feel that this could be your 1st or even last smoke of the day. I want more!!!” -Mickey T. (irratebass)

Blind Cigar Review: Alpha | Absinthe Infused Claro Half Corona

"I am always looking for that perfect short/winter smoke. When I pulled out this half corona I was excited. I was a bit nervous to do a review on this small of a cigar as it's really hard to break it up into thirds. The cigar smoked great with some nice balance of flavor to start. As the cigar warmed I did get a bitter taste that came and went. I would pick up some of these for that quick winter smoke!" -Zane G. (Zane)
