“There are two things that stand out on with the Todos Las Dias Double Wide Belicoso. The first is the boldness that this cigar delivers from its strength and body. The second is the uniqueness demonstrated from the flavor profile of this cigar… On top of that, I really like how this blend worked in the 4 3/4 x 60 figurado format.”

Review: Todos Las Dias Double Wide Belicoso by Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust (9/26/17)
Brand Appearances on Countdown: 3 (2015, 2016, 2017)
Coming in at #6 is Todos Las Dias Double Wide Belicoso by Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust. Todos Las Dias was the signature release for Steve Saka’s Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust in 2017. It was a cigar designed to be a stronger and bolder offering in the company’s portfolio.
Todos Las Dias is a 100% Nicaraguan puro. The cigar is made at the Joya de Nicaragua factory in Estelí, Nicaragua. This is the factory that is handling production for Sobremesa and the currently released cigars under the Muestra de Saka line. The Double Wide Belicoso measures 4 3/4 x 60. This is a size that has been made popular at Joya de Nicaragua with that brand’s Gran Cónsul offerings.
Saka’s Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust brands have been on the market since 2015. And for each of the three years the company has been in existence, it has landed on a Cigar Coop Countdown. It is the sixth Nicaraguan puro to land on the 2017 Countdown. The Double Wide Belicoso is also the second figurado and third 60 ring gauge to land on this year’s countdown.
Flavor-wise the Todos Las Dias Double Wide Belicoso has a signature note that I describe as a savory, spicy chili pepper note. In addition, there are notes of natural tobacco, earth, cocoa, and subtle hints of mineral and wood that balance out the flavor profile. This is a cigar that will build in intensity – starting out medium to full in strength and body and progressing to full by the second half.
Over the years, Saka has continued to produce high quality, enjoyable, and unique blends. Todos Las Dias is another fine example of that and lands Saka back on this year’s Countdown.
