Notes From Saka:
The Nacatamale is the second frontmark in the line. What made this cigar a unique blending challenge was I went “viejo granja” style with it. 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. Whereas these days we have hundreds of ingredients to work and blend with to create interesting and satisfying ligas. So the challenge was to see if I could make an “old farm” style liga that could hold its own with the modern blends created today. Albeit not the most complex of ligas, it is exceptionally flavorful with a really satisfying spice and tantalizing finish.
