"The overall notes were smooth and sweet. With hints of a peppery bite on the tongue. The cigar transitioned beautifully from a sweet cedar to a warm bready, cabinet slice delight. Each third of the cigar revealed its beautiful constitution with great transitional changes over the course of the smoke. It was a superb example of what a transitional smoke experience should be." -Bradlee W. (Brad W.)
"This was a very enjoyable and well-balanced dark noted smoke. With fairly constant subtle shifts it kept my interest level pretty high. I would put this in my box-worthy category. The strength is very manageable, and I could easily see it working well any time of day. The only minus is that the burn time is fairly quick for the size." -Chris M. (Chris)
"While I wasn't all that impressed with this cigar at the beginning it really came to life in the second third. Once that happened I was really into the cigar. The transition into the second third came rapidly, and I'm sure my expression and happiness at that time was visible to anyone around. Even thirty minutes after smoking this cigar, the remains were still felt and tasted on my lips, and I was pretty darn close to heaven. This is something I can easily place into my rotation. And man does it burn for a long time." -Isaac M. (The Nothing)

"Overall a very pleasant stick. Once it started mellowing out a little bit the cigar became a very nice smoke. This is one I'll be looking at more closely after the reveal, and would consider a box purchase on if the price is right. " -Dave W. (mdwest)

"I trend towards cigars that are full of flavors and pack a punch in strength. This cigar was right up my alley. Impressive slow burn that produced plentiful smoke with tons of flavors. I would recommend this one to the experienced smoker that enjoys a toasty, sweet flavorful session. I will definitely be adding a few of these to the humidor after the blend is revealed. Great job and bravo to the blend master and roller." -Adam B. (Bushboy)

While the Diademas size was amazing I always find them a struggle with construction, burn, etc. This cigar from a construction point of view was on point. The burn was great, and the cigar smoked perfectly. Would I spend $100 on this cigar if it was regular production? Of course not. Definitely a treat to smoke and I was happy to get the chance. I give this a score of 93.
Unicorns do exist. Steve Saka should know. He created the Unicorn. The Muestra de Saka Unicorn, to be exact. Saka first mentioned the unique and ultra-limited cigar on a social media platform back in mid-December, 2017.
Muestra de Saka is a collection of different cigar blends from Steve Saka of Dunbarton Tobacco and Trust, each to be released at separate times throughout the next year. It was unveiled at the 2016 IPCPR and Muestra de Saka translated means “Sample of Saka".
