Steve Saka language lesson: ""Muestra' is the humble, common word for 'sample' in Spanish; however it takes on much more important, sometimes reverential, meaning, when used in a handmade cigar factory. A muestra is the vision of the ligador and torcedor realized. It is the promise of a new experience and possibly the key to financial success for the fabrica. Muestras are hoarded and coveted by not only their makers, but by the cigar smokers who seek to catch a glimpse into the cigarmaker's soul within their smoke."

Size Matters:

  • Exclusivo: 6 x 52 parejos* packed in individual coffins in a seven-count box. According to Saka, the Exclusivo is "a special liga I created to be the ultimate expression of my love for the smoothest of Nicaraguan tripas. It is a complex smoke, featuring filler tobaccos from all four primary growing regions: Condega, Ometape, Esteli, and Jalapa.  By extremely careful positioning of the leaf, [the cigar] takes  the smoker from a silky-smooth beginning of sweet cedar and cinnamon, building to a satisfying creamy conclusion. It is a very intricate blend that rewards the smoker with complexity and a sophisticated progression." 7/box
  • Nacatamale: 6 x 48 parejos packed in individual coffins in a seven-count box. Single-ingredient liga; according to Saka, "For over a century, most cigars' entire filler recipes were comprised of just ONE farm's tobacco and any complexity was introduced by extremely careful leaf processing, selection and positioning within the bunch.... [T]he challenge was to see if I could make an 'old farm' style liga that could hold its own with the modern blends we create today [from hundreds of ingredients]." 7/box
  • #NLMTHA: 7x38. More info coming on this lancero! 7/box

Birthplace:  Esteli, Nicaragua.


*Generally, a cigar with straight sides and a rounded head; not a figurado (which youve probably heard more often).
