For the first time in nearly four years, there will be another release in Smoke Inn’s Microblend Series.

This time, the cigar will come from Steve Saka’s Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust brand. And this time there will be a third partner, a South Florida-based organization called the Red Meat Lovers Club.

The cigar is made to be paired with beef. It uses a Connecticut broadleaf wrapper over a Mexican San Andrés negro oscuro wrapper and a mixture of Nicaragua and Pennsylvania fillers. The cigar is offered in a single 6 x 56 parejo size with production limited to 500 bundles of 10 cigars.

Pricing is set at $11.95 per cigar.

“Cigars and steaks go hand in hand, but to my knowledge, no one has ever actually developed a blend specifically created to be enjoyed intentionally together as a ‘pairing,'” said Steve Saka in a press release. “You would think this would be a rather straightforward task, but I took the responsibility very seriously in the selection of the various tobaccos to best compliment the hearty nature of the beef.”

Production is being handled at Nicaragua American Cigars S.A.

The cigar will go on sale on Jan. 17. A steak dinner is planned for the night before.

Multiple representatives from Smoke Inn did not return requests for comment.

Update: Smoke Inn sent us a press release.
