Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust has started shipping the inaugural annual Holiday release of its StillWell Star cigar using luxury pipe tobacco. The cigar itself, simply called the “Holiday Y2022”, is a blend of traditional black cigar tobaccos combined with a unique custom crafted aromatic pipe blend from the pipe tobacco maker Cornell & Diehl.
The highly anticipated StillWell Star by Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust and Steve Saka is officially launching this Friday, November 5th. It will be exclusive to Smokingpipes.com and its brick-and-mortar store Low Country Pipe & Cigar for the time being. This marks the first time Dunbarton has launched a new national product at a single store. The company says it will be several weeks before the nationwide release.
"This was a very sweet deep dark chocolate fruity smoke. I don't often like sweet smoking cigars but this one was very enjoyable. The retrohale was very different with complex sweetness, red pepper bursts, and pipe tobacco flavor to it. I would really like to have a couple more of these to try and possibly consider added to my humidor. For the blind tasting I had a Mexican mineral water but I believe a good bourbon or peaty scotch would pair excellently with this smoke." -Chad M. (Chad Tchad)
One of the most anticipated releases for the PCA trade show in 2021 is Steve Saka and Dunbarton Tobacco & Trusts' StillWell Star. He's been teasing the new release for month but tight-lipped about the details, even going so far as to say this would be the most controversial release of the year. Now, thanks to a special Facebook Live press release, we know the details.
