Welcome back to another episode of the Mystery Cigar Review, a cigar-focused spin-off series of our popular Mystery Tobacco Reviews. This month, we were privileged to host our first-ever guest Inquisitor. Steve Saka of Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust — former CEO of Drew Estate and former executive of JR Cigars — stopped by earlier this month to visit our brick & mortar store and meet the team. While he was here, he selected not one but two unknown cigars for us to sample in a blind taste-test, each labeled with nothing more than a bit of masking tape. A master of the industry, Steve certainly gave us a run for our money, but how did we do do? Were we able to guess the cigars' wrapper, binder, and fillers? Tune in to discover how Shane, Tyler, Truett, and I fared against Steve's 40+ years of experience.

What is The Mystery Cigar Review?
For those of you unfamiliar with this little game, each month one member of our team selects a cigar for us to review in a blind taste-test. Then we gather around the camera, scratch our heads, and smoke, all while attempting to guess the mysterious cigar's wrapper, filler, origins, and name. There's only one rule: There are no rules.
