Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust’s most affordable offering will be shipping next month.

Steve Saka has announced that Umbagog will begin formally shipping nationwide on the second week of March.

Umbagog, named after Saka’s favorite fishing lake, is a cigar that uses Connecticut broadleaf wrapper that is designated as too ugly to be used on Mi Querida, a more premium offering.

The four-size line uses a Nicaraguan binder and Nicaraguan filler. It’s offered in:

  • Umbagog Corona Gorda (6 x 48) — $6.45 (Bundles of 10, $64.50)
  • Umbagog Robusto Plus (5 x 52) — $6.45 (Bundles of 10, $64.50)
  • Umbagog Toro Toro (6 x 52) — $6.95 (Bundles of 10, $69.50)
  • Umbagog Gordo Gordo (6 x 56) — $7.45 (Bundles of 10, $74.50)

“It is robust and durable, designed to endure the rigors of outside activity with its thick broadleaf capa and easy burning liga,” said Saka in sales material. “This is a cigar that doesn’t pretend to be special or seek to elicit the ‘oohs or aahs’ of the cigar snobs. It is an honest, hardworking cigar that is meant to be smoked, chewed upon and lit however many times you wish. For me, it is the perfect cigar for mowing the yard, hiking, four wheelin’ and of course, fishing!”

The cigar is packaged in 10-count craft paper bundles.
