Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust brought two new cigars to IPCPR 2019. They were posted up in the same open booth format as previous years, and boy, was their booth busy.
Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust is one of our favorite companies in the cigar industry. DT&T, has focused heavily on the quality of their cigars since the company broke into the market, and it sure shows. We got the scoop from Steve Saka.
Last year’s big release, Sin Compromiso, was CutLightSmoke’s #1 cigar of 2018. This year, the company is releasing both a powerhouse cigar as well as something on the complete opposite end of the spectrum.
Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust Sobremesa Brûlée
A first for Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust, the Sobremesa Brûlée is a mild to medium cigar filling a void in the company’s lineup. It was blended to be a very traditional Connecticut unlike many going with stronger blends under that shade wrapper. We got a chance to try this, and even being full-bodied fans, the Brûlée blew us away.

Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust Mi Querida Triqui Traca
This project was somewhat of a follow up to the Mi Querida Firecracker released exclusively for Two Guys Smoke Shop. The name is slang for a type of firecracker in Nicaragua, and the blend packs some punch. Steve Saka described the smoke as more of a thick chewiness much different from the original Mi Querida.
