Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust’s most expensive brand to date, the Muestra de Saka, will ship nationally beginning next month.

The release is called Muestra de Saka, which literally translates to Saka’s sample. The Nicaraguan puro will first be offered in a 6 x 52 Parejo size, limited in production, and priced at $14.95 per cigar in boxes of seven.

“The Exclusivo is a special liga I created to be the ultimate expression of my love for all Nicaraguan trips,” said Steve Saka, Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust’s founder, in a press release. “It is a complex smoke featuring filler tobaccos from all four primary growing regions: Jalapa, Condega, Ometepe and Esteli – by extremely careful positioning of the leaf it takes the smoker from a silky smooth beginning of sweet cedar and cinnamon building to a much fuller, pepper laced conclusion. It is a very intricate blend that rewards the smoker with endless complexity and progression.”

Muestra de Saka will begin shipping the third week of March, a week after Dunbarton’s most affordable release to date, Umbagog, debuts nationally. A partial list of retailers carrying the cigar can be found here.
