Steve Saka Muestra de Saka Nacatamale

Perfectly smooth dark wrapper with light tobacco sweetness from the wrapper and foot with traces of ligero present. A perfect draw leads me to believe that this will be a great cigar. Today’s beverage is an Avery Brewing Tweak, a 16% beer that provides a kick of its own.



The perfect draw affords a purely tasty mouth feel. The retrohale has just the right amount of pepper to balance out the flavor. There is also a nice touch of pepper on the palate.

Unlike the Muestra Exclusivo this one has a very prominent kick, very welcome for me and smokers of heavier cigars. There are hints of onion-heavy gumbo with hints of garlic. This cigar is not messing around. The burn is very even and the ash has no flakes.

The first third is, to use an overused word, perfect. The smoke is cool and plentiful. A hint of cognac
appears to add to the almost perfect tobacco blend. There is also a light cinnamon note on the deeper draws. The burn continues to be perfect and the ash continues to be very solid.



During the second third an espresso note appears and blends in very nicely with the existing flavors. The pepper notes on the palate are all but gone, but the pepper in the retrohale remains. The rich tobacco flavors return for a very pleasant blend. This is a medium to full bodied cigar.

The construction and complexity of the cigar are beyond perfect. The price point may be a bit high, but you taste ever dollar you spend on this cigar. Steve Saka would yell at me if I gave it a perfect score, so it earns a 9.75/10. Joe Bob says check it out.
