"Even though there were some minor burn issues and the cigar started out with a bit of a tight draw, it was absolutely great to smoke. The flavors were simply outstanding. Perfectly melded together, with nice subtle transitions in the profile every couple of inches into the smoke. I'm ready to see the reveal on this one so I can go out and buy a box!" -Dave (mdwest)
With an intended launch of spring 2015, The Rake will be made at Erik Espinosa’s La Zona factory in Esteli, Nicaragua.

This was a very enjoyable cigar. There were plenty of flavors to keep me interested and kept looking at the cigar like mmmm mmm. This cigar would an excellent choice as your first cigar of the day with your favorite cup of joe. The draw was very nice and open, and had a razor sharp burn that needed no touch ups. I smoked the cigar with an inch to go, and would liked to have continue on, but it went out.
The original Cigar Dojo Sensei's Sensational Sarsaparilla hit the market seven years ago. Sassy, for short, made a comeback in 2016 with Sensei's Sensational Sarsaparilla II, or Sassy II. Now, in 2021 we get a third release of this cigar, now on a national level. The original Sassy was Cigar Dojo's second collaboration, this time with Erik Espinosa. The original release was a 5½" x 52 belicoso and only 1,000 bundles of 10 were made.

"It's not the most complex or exciting cigar ever but for those who lean more towards mild and consistent this fits that profile perfectly. A very easy smoke with a good burn and great smoke production. " -Lauren S. (Lauren S.)
2018 was the first time Cigar Dojo and Cubariqueño Cigar Co. collaborated on a cigar, "Protocol K9." The next year the duo released "Protocol Night Stick." And now, in 2021, we get the "Protocol Taser." The idea of all their collaborations has been instruments of law enforcement, now including the tactical taser. It is a valuable asset to many law enforcement agencies as a non-lethal way to incapacitate perpetrators.
