The latest Muestra de Saka is shipping, so now please bother Steve Saka.
It’s called #NLMTHA, an acronym for now leave me the hell alone, a 7 x 38 lancero. The Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust founder said the cigar is named that way because of all of the people who bothered him for years asking him to make a lancero.
“Like all the others, this vitola is yet another personal blending challenge given that I am vocal in my lack of appreciation for this lancero format,” wrote Saka on the cigar’s sales sheet. “As a ligador, I have never had a lancero that I didn’t feel I could make better if I were to blend the same in a slightly wider format.”
If that sounds familiar, it’s because it is. When Saka was the president of Drew Estate he said similar things about his hesitation to make a Liga Privada lancero.
Pricing is set at $17.95 per cigar and it is sold in boxes of seven.
Saka has described the Muestra de Saka series as cigars that “reflect(s) the blending machinations of myself,” as the name means Sample of Saka or Saka’s Sample. This is the fourth release in the series.
