Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust: StillWell Star English No. 27 Cigars

Product Number: 007-856-0041

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 English No. 27: A quintessential mix of Burley and Turkish leaf with a generous portion of Cypriot Latakia is pressed into a cake before being rubbed out and paired with Nicaraguan cigar tobaccos. Rich and decadent, this cigar celebrates traditional English mixtures, perfect for lovers of Latakia-based pipe tobaccos.

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

Pre-light you can smell the pipe tobacco. The first inch the draw was tight, but opened up after that. I could taste the pipe tobacco throughout, although it was a good, balanced flavor...not overpowering english flavor. Got a good nic-hit about half... Read More

Product: Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust StillWell Star English No. 27
The scent of the latakia is present even before the pre-light, and gives a bold smoke profile. It gives this well made cigar a pleasant smoky taste and smell for the first half, but not overpowering. About half way through, the smokiness gives way to... Read More

I wrote a less than glowing review for the Aromatic in this series. But the English…WOW! One of the best cigars I’ve had in awhile. Full, rich with hints of a nice English blend. Will definitely be buying more of these!
