Blind Man’s Puff – Dunbarton T&T | Muestra De Saka Nacatamale

“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)

Leaf Enthusiast – Dunbarton T&T | Muestra De Saka Nacatamale

“This second installment in the Muestra de Saka series is a tour de force of what can be achieved in tobaccos from a single farm. The leaf that was selected produced complex sweet, floral and leathery notes that played freely on the palate while pepper seared my nose, at least at the beginning. Very nice and apparently very popular with the blender of this liga…this is one that maybe should make its way into regular production in a variety of sizes.” – David Jones

Halfwheel – Dunbarton T&T | Muestra De Saka Nacatamale

“Hand me a Steve Saka-blended cigar, and I’m almost certainly going to expect a medium-plus to full bodied blend, and that’s what had me initially so perplexed by the Muestra de Saka Nacatamale. While there’s plenty of pepper through the nose, it’s a much more subdued cigar on the palate, particularly in the first and second thirds. But where there’s subtlety, there’s often nuance, and the Nacatamale can show that if given the chance. While I won’t pretend that I didn’t enjoy the most flavorful of the three samples more than the other two—and scored it higher, accordingly—I found the second cigar the most interesting as its subtleties invited the most exploration. To borrow a line I’ve used a few times before, I’m impressed by the Nacatamale, but more importantly I’m intrigued to smoke a few more to see what else it might have to offer.” – Patrick Lagreid

Stogie Guys – Dunbarton T&T | Muestra De Saka Nacatamale

“What makes Nacatamale so outstanding—and, yes, it is absolutely outstanding—is not any individual flavor. This cigar is a great example of how the whole can be greater than the sum of its parts. The overall balance, complexity, and harmony is simply on point. That Saka handicapped himself by relegating the entire filler recipe to one farm and still composed a symphony of deliciousness… well, that’s head-scratching. Pony up and grab one of these while you still can. Any rating besides five stogies out of five would be inappropriate.” – Patrick A.

Casas Fumando – Dunbarton T&T | Muestra De Saka Nacatamale

“Hands down in my humble opinion the Muestra de Saka Nacatamale is my favorite cigar released from Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust to date. Its meaty, its complex, its bold, and the flavor profile is something that I personally love. The price is a bit steep but in this case you get what you pay for and thats a cigar that delivers. These are limited, and the box count is small enough that even with the higher price this is something I will try to have stocked in my humidor for as long as I can.” – Tony Casas

Cigar Authority – Dunbarton T&T | Muestra De Saka Nacatamale

“I wasn’t a fan of the original release and my score reflected that. Despite that, I was looking forward to this release, especially given the size. I am happy to say it did not disappoint, and it even exceeded expectations. With the binder and filler coming from a single farm in Jalapa I was worried about the complexity of the cigar, but that fear was unfounded. From first light to last puff, this was truly an enjoyable stick.” – Barry Stein
