Cigar Review: Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust Sobremesa Brûlée Toro

Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust (DTT) is a company that has nailed every cigar they have ever release. The “ligador and catador de puros,” Steve Saka, is a big part of that with over 20 years of experience in the industry. When I see DTT on the shelves of a brick and mortar, I find myself…

Chogüí Cigars is one of those “IYKYK” (if you know, you know) cigar brands. Chogüí Cigars is, as Jeremy Casdagli would say, “Boutique as fuck.” So boutique, that I couldn’t find what factory rolls the Chogüí brand. In fact, there’s not a lot out there. The Chogüí website just adds to this mystique, as it…
