StillWell Star Aromatic No. 22

Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust will add the StillWell Star Aromatic No. 22 as a core offering at the 2024 Premium Cigar Association (PCA) Trade Show. This fifth main offering to the StillWell Star line is not a new cigar. The previously limited StillWell Star Holiday Y2022 is now a core line and is being rebranded to the Aromatic No. 22.

StillWell Star cigar brand from Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust incorporates pipe tobacco into the filler. It was initially released in four different regular production blends – each comprising a different pipe tobacco. When it comes to the world of pipes, many pipe tobacco blenders are known to make special blends for the end-of-the-year holiday season. Master Ligador Steve Saka decided to incorporate the same concept with StillWell Star by creating a limited edition StillWell Star Holiday blend release, and the StillWell Star Holiday series was born. The Holiday Y2022 was the first of these limited releases.

Now called the Aromatic No. 22, the blend remains the same. Cavendish Burley and Virginia tobaccos pipe tobaccos are blended with Nicaraguan tobaccos, then enveloped with a San Andres Mexican binder and Ecuadoran Habano wrapper. It still comes in the same 6 x 52 Toro size. The white and gold band of the Y2022 is replaced by the blue and gold band found on the StillWell Star Core line. Saka said the sales of the limited runs of Holiday Y2022 led to making it a core offering.
