Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust will present a new size for the Todos Las Dias line at the IPCPR in Las Vegas: Thick Lonsdale Mas Fuerte.
It is a Lonsdale, measuring 46 x 152 mm, that was created by mistake thanks to a miscommunication during the blending phase at the Fabrica de Tabacos Joya de Nicaragua SA; in fact for the Todos Las Dias line there is an official blend, for the production of the entire line, and another “reserved blend” pinned on Steve Saka blending diary. The difference lies in the different proportions of the tobacco used for the line.
Although Fabrica de Tabacos Joya de Nicaragua SA has repeatedly asked Saka for confirmation, the latter has never noticed the mistake until the misunderstanding was revealed, when the first cigars were made for quality control purposes. At that point Saka noticed the mistake, because the cigars he smoked were stronger than the original line.
The owner of Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust had to decide whether to destroy the cigars, or continue with the production and, given the widely appreciated result, accept the mistake and promote the product anyway.
Thick Lonsdale Mas Fuerte will be available from August on and is packaged in 10 count boxes for $11.95 per single cigar.
