The maker of the self-proclaimed “most controversial cigar of 2021” will sit down with our least controversial writer: Brian Burt. Yes, he still works here.

Steve Saka of Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust will be in the halfwheel bunker to talk about StillWell Star, Paladin de Saka, a new Mi Querida Triqui Traca and probably more. Have questions about how many cigars you are legally allowed to bring back into the U.S.? Want to know what the weather in Nicaragua was like 10 days ago? Ask on YouTube or Facebook and maybe Saka will tell you.

Drew Estate is the sponsor of halfwheel's coverage of the 2021 PCA Convention & Trade Show
