Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust Announces the Sin Compromiso


June 22, 2018

Sin Compromiso, without compromise, is our company mantra and the guiding ethos for everything we do here at Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust.

Creating a cigar brand to manifest this expression into a tangible reality was an incredibly challenging task as this cigar simply had to be beyond exceptional. From the cultivation of distinct and unique tobaccos to the careful working of these prized leaves to allowing only the very best torcedors to hand craft each cigar. Even the box which contains these vitolas had to be extra special – in short, this cigar is the absolute best of everything.

Steve Saka notes:

The result is a truly unique, complex cigar that is smooth, yet strong at the very same time. 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 chicory root. I spent over three years of meticulously crafting and tweaking this blend and I can say without reservation it is personally my best liga ever. I have never experienced such an intriguing and satisfying smoke.

Steve Explains the time and patience put into this creation:

“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. 

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.”

When asked on Facebook about the “unlucky 13 box count”, Steve Replied:

 “there is actually a personal reason I went with the “13” – when I was a kid I loved fishing with my Dad and my favorite lure was a top water chugger made by Heddon called the “Lucky 13” – I caught so many fish with that lure so for me “13” is a lucky number.”

He also responded to a Facebook question about how it compares to the TLD and the Mi Querida:

“I dunno… I mean it is just so different than both of those… best to judge for yourself next month at the International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailers (IPCPR) tradeshow.”

If you are attending the IPCPR  this coming July, you can locate Steve and Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust in Booth 1027.
