A limited edition from Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust is about to get just a bit less limited.

A second production of the Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust Famous Smoke Shop 80th Anniversary, released for the retailer’s anniversary in October, is slated to be released next week. While the original production was 250 boxes of 10, this second batch will be 500 boxes of 10 cigars.

In a Facebook post, the store said that the first batch went so fast that many of its customers missed out, so it asked Steve Saka for a second release, which he agreed to produce. All of the specifics remain the same, meaning a Nicaraguan puro in a 6 x 52 box-pressed toro vitola, with the cigar produced at Nicaragua American Cigars S.A. Pricing is set at $120 per box.

Saka has described the cigar as “a full flavored, rich liga that is ‘classic Saka’ through and through,” adding that the wrapper is a “unique, naturally sungrown” leaf.

The second batch will be released during a virtual event held via Zoom on Nov. 18. More information, including the opportunity to sign up for the event, is available via the store’s Facebook page.

In addition to the release from Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust, Famous Smoke Shop has celebrated its 80th anniversary with cigars from AGANORSA Leaf and Romeo y Julieta.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
