From a firmer draw than I’m used, I love the smoky, chewy, malty, leathery, cocoa with some coffee wanting to become more prominent and with wood notes on the retrohale…

I’m not picking up any pepper spice at this point at the start.

I think it’s time to sit back, relax my eyes and enjoy this cigar.

Today’s the day I get to smoke this cigar and I should not be surprised at the outcome.

Almost every Steve Saka, Dunbarton Tobacco and Trust cigar have been stellar. Those that initially didn’t make the cut were admitted later after further vetting. I expected this to be true of the Sin Compromiso and I was correct.

I will have to have another or two of these before I fully vet my experience with this outstanding cigar. Full of smooth very complex flavors that I was having a hard time pinpointing, maybe because I was too distracted by the huge full smooth dry smoke of deep rich woody, leather, and cocoa that kept me satisfied. #SakamotoHappy.

Yep, may I have another, please! The Dunbarton Tobacco and Trust Sin Compromiso is a keeper!

I’ve become a huge fan of Steve Saka’s Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust cigars lately. In the beginning, it was hit and miss as I was trying to be objective with my own “Beginner’s” palette to not be too over-convinced by others who excelled so much excitement about Mr. Saka’s offerings.

So with that, I Brag – I have these to try in the very near future; after they rest for a bit.
Thank you, Ralph Larson.
