Dunbarton Tobacco and Trust’s long-awaited Sin Compromiso line will finally have its official release. Today the company announced the cigar will make its debut at the 2018 IPCPR Trade Show opening July 13th, 2018 in Las Vegas, NV. For Dunbarton Tobacco and Trust founder and Master Ligador Steve Saka the release is significant for many reasons, including that the line is also the first box-pressed blend to be released by Saka,
“Sin Compromiso is the result of over three years’ of experimental black tobacco harvests in Mexico, Ecuador and Nicaragua and the culmination of my experiences as a cigar blender,” stated Saka in a press release. “The marquee’s name translates to ‘no compromise’ and that is the exact approach I took when creating this cigar. This blend is a direct reflection of all the skills I have learned and developed over the last twenty plus years and I am genuinely excited to share it with my fellow cigar smokers.”
“Sin Compromiso is a truly unique, complex cigar that is simultaneously smooth, yet strong. It delivers a captivating and entrancing smoke for the experienced palate with flavors that are constantly swirling and changing from puff to puff. At its core is an inherent sweetness paired with a savory spiciness, but hidden within its layers are notes of cocao, espresso, loam and even a hint of smoky chicory root. I spent over three years meticulously crafting and tweaking this blend and I can say without reservation it is personally my very best liga ever bar none. I have never experienced such an intriguing and satisfying smoke.”
The blend features a San Andrés Negro “Cultivo Tonto” wrapper, a hybridized “Thin Ligero” Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, and ndependent plantation grown Nicaraguan filler. The cigar is produced at the Joya de Nicaragua S.A. facility in Nicaragua
Sin Compromiso will initially be offered in five soft-box pressed sizes presented in 13-count matte lacquered boxes. The five sizes include: Selección No. 2 Torpedo (6 x 52), Selección No. 5 Parejo (6 x 54), Selección No. 7 Parejo (7 x 56), Selección “Intrépido” (5 5/8 x 46) and the Selección “Espada Estoque” (7 x 44). Pricing will have an MSRP in the range of $15.95 to $18.45 USD. Each vitola is sleeved in Spanish Cedar.
