The draw was simply amazing.
The Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust Polpetta is far from being a poor cigar, but it does fall into this recent trend of event-only cigars that are not worth the price of admission. There was a time when event-only cigars were special and of high quality, but that has gone out the window. This is a one dimensional cigar. There is no complexity or transitioning and in the end it is saved by the draw and burn. I don’t know what you have to buy to get these, or if they simply hand them out at the event, but if I were to buy a box of a particular line I would rather get a couple sticks from that line than a bundle of these. I doubt that’s an option though. With that, I would not want to hand these out as a representation of my brand. “Hey, thanks for coming. Smoke this! It’s scrap tobacco. I’m not saying don’t go to a Saka event or purchase a box from one of his events, but don’t go crazy on your purchases just to get your hand on some Polpettas. It’s a short, one dimensional cigar that could serve a purpose, but not as an event-only cigar.
