Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust: StillWell Star Aromatic No. 1 Cigars

Product Number: 007-856-0039

StillWell Star cigars from Dunbarton Tobacco and Trust are the first luxury cigars to feature premium pipe tobacco, pairing the cigar-blending prowess of founder Steve Saka with the pipe-tobacco prowess of Cornell & Diehl. Though he's most prominently known throughout the cigar industry, Steve has smoked a pipe for years, and C&D blends comprise much of his cellar. StillWell Star combines this love for both cigars and pipe tobaccos, represented by four distinctive blends: Aromatic No. 1, English No. 27, Bayou No. 32, and Navy No. 1056. These cigars are all 6" x 52 Toros with Ecuadorian Habano wrappers, Mexican San Andrés binders, and fillers that include various pipe tobaccos — each hand-blended by Cornell & Diehl from recipes created by head blender Jeremy Reeves. While offering flavors and aromas that both cigar and pipe smokers will find familiar and appealing, StillWell Star cigars remain singular, something greater than the sum of their components.

"They're a completely new type of cigar. They're cigars with the essences of pipe tobaccos — enough to catch the average cigar smoker in ways different from anything else they might have experienced before. I want cigar smokers to recognize these blends as different and unique, and I want pipe smokers to experience familiarity but in a different form." -Steve Saka

The concept of pipe-tobacco cigars is not a novel one, but prior examples have often been overwhelmingly sweet and not of particularly high quality on either the cigar or the pipe tobacco side. By contrast, StillWell Star's blends showcase a range of pipe-tobacco varietals, from Latakia, Orientals, and Burley to Virginias, Perique, and Black Cavendish — all expertly crafted at C&D utilizing traditional, hands-on processes and high-grade leaf. Steve and Jeremy both maintain exemplary standards and personally source the raw tobacco they use, so when Steve needed pipe tobacco to create StillWell Star, he turned to Jeremy and C&D. No one has ever combined high-grade pipe tobacco with equally high-grade cigar leaf, and such quality components and range of various pipe tobaccos elevate StillWell Star above other pipe-tobacco cigars. As Steve says, "Be still; be well. These aren't cigars to be rushed. They're to be smoked and thought about." Beautifully balanced and richly nuanced, StillWell Star cigars delight seasoned cigar aficionados and veteran pipe smokers alike and deserve a place in every humidor.

Offered here is the Aromatic No. 1: The finest of aromatic Black Cavendish, Golden Virginia and Burley pipe tobaccos are added to Nicaraguan cigar leaf to provide a delightfully smooth smoking experience and pleasant room note. Each cigar is delicately finished with a sweetened cap to further complement the flavor profile.

Product: Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust StillWell Star Aromatic No. 1
For $15 I should be happy at the end of a cigar. This one was average at best. Pleasant enough in the beginning. The sweetened cap was unexpected. Mild hints of pipe tobacco in the aroma but not much on the palate. The draw on mine was very tight. I’... Read More
Right down the middle

Product: Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust StillWell Star Aromatic No. 1
Stillwell 3 star would be a better name for this cigar. It was certainly lacking in the Aromatic qualities, and the only taste I got from it was the slightly sweetened cap. The draw was consistent and easy, as this is a well made cigar. The pros and ... Read More
Fine, but not really aromatic

Product: Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust StillWell Star Aromatic No. 1
This was a well-constructed cigar, but I didn't get any aromatic flavor from it other than the sweetened tip. The flavors were fairly typical for a medium-strength stick, and I didn't get any sense that the room note was different, either. Overall, i... Read More

Product: Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust StillWell Star Aromatic No. 1
Sweet - I am not a fan of sweetened tips, nor of this cigar. The tip ruined it and any flavor was at best boring. Draw was tight and got worse through the 2nd 1/3. The idea would seem to be good, but execution is lacking. $15 there are better cigars... Read More
Best of Both Worlds

Product: Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust StillWell Star Aromatic No. 1
As an avid pipe enthusiast and cigar smoker (as well as a bit of a Dunbarton fanboy - but aren't we all at this point?), I was excited to try this exciting marriage of the two styles. I found all four expressions to be remarkably well executed and fe... Read More
가향시가를 좋아하진않습니다

Product: Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust StillWell Star Aromatic No. 1
하지만 파이프에서 느낄수있는 향을 그대로 시가에서 느낄수있네요 아주 좋습니다~처음 접하시거나 아직 시가에 익숙치 않으시는분들도 편하게 태우실수있을거같습니다. 특히 캡부분에 달달함은 꽤오래 갑니다 ㅎㅎ
Good basic cigar

Product: Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust StillWell Star Aromatic No. 1
My second foray into the Stillwell line. Good construction, burned rapidly. Although the taste was enjoyable, I got no hint of any aromatic pipe tobacco whatsoever. The English version I could definitely taste the Latakia. When it comes to aromatics,... Read More
Amazing Cigar!

Product: Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust StillWell Star Aromatic No. 1
This cigar has it all…Great Flavor with a hint of sweetness. Burns evenly and the sweetness isn’t over-powering at all. This is a great crossover cigar for a pipe smoker tiptoeing into cigars.

Product: Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust StillWell Star Aromatic No. 1
I really love this cigar. Just finished smoking it, and it is very light, yet smooth and creamy. I even got a very, very light note of coffee around the middle of the cigar, maybe from the binder or filler accenting the burley or cavendish. Very well... Read More
Pleasant Enjoyable Smoke

Product: Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust StillWell Star Aromatic No. 1
This cigar exceeded expectations. First off, imagine a cigar with a pleasant room note. The longer I smoked it, the more I would pause, look at it and say, "This is a really good cigar." It was smooth, not heavy. I can hardly wait for ... Read More
