Dunstable Cigars Debuts


There’s a new cigar brand on the market, this time coming from New Hampshire.

Dunstable Cigar Co. has released its first cigar, the Dunstable Cervantes, a 6 1/2 x 42 lonsdale that will feature a pigtail cap. The blend is composed of a habano rosado wrapper covering Nicaraguan tobacco in the binder and filler, all of which have been aged for at least two years.

“Our goal was to create a cigar for ourselves and close friends, something we could smoke everyday and never get tired of,” said Frederick Boucher, owner of Dunstable, in an email. “It was never about money or a price point, it was about making a quality cigar that we could be proud of. Its taken almost five years, but the end result has been exactly what we set out to accomplish.”

Each cigar carries an MSRP of $9, with boxes of 10 selling for $89.50. The first batch is limited to 1,001 boxes—rolled at Plasencia Cigars S.A. last October—but Dunstable plans on the Cervantes being a regular production item.

While the cigars began shipping to retailers nationwide last month, a launch event is scheduled at Castro’s Back Room in Nashua, N.H. on May 29.

About the author

I have been smoking cigars for over eight years. A documentary wedding photographer by trade, I spent seven years as a photojournalist for the Dallas Morning News and the Fort Worth Star Telegram. I started the cigar blog SmokingStogie in 2008 after realizing that there was a need for a cigar blog with better photographs and more in-depth information about each release. SmokingStogie quickly became one of the more influential cigar blogs on the internet, known for reviewing preproduction, prerelease, rare, extremely hard-to-find and expensive cigars. I am a co-founder of halfwheel and now serve as an editor for halfwheel.
