Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust (DTT)’s Stilwell Star Y2022 has begun to arrive at retail stores. This is first of a planned annual holiday release under the StillWell Star line. Like the other StillWell blends, the Holiday Y2022 incorporates pipe tobacco – in this case, a blend designed to coincide with the year in holidays.
“A tradition in Pipe Culture is for carvers to craft one-off pipe designs and for blenders to create special mixtures to smoke and celebrate the Holidays. In honor of this practice, it was always my intention to follow suit within our StillWell Star line of puros,” states Steve Saka, the founder of DTT, in a press release.
He continues, “This year’s release is a delightful aromatic puro with a carefully balanced selection of mild Cavendish Burley and choice Virginia tobaccos incorporated. Unlike the Aromatic No. 1 in the core line, this Holiday release does not feature a dulce cabeza, however the tobaccos themselves are wonderfully sweet to the tongue – the flavor and aroma are nothing short of exceptional. Personally, I find the smoking experience to be like sipping a cup of hot chocolate with marshmallows fireside. It is nuanced and balanced, a very deftly executed blending of cigar and pipe tobaccos that evokes the emotion of enjoying a relaxed Christmas morning.”
Pricing for the StillWell Star Y2022 is set at $15.30 per cigar. For more details see our PCA Pre-Game coverage.
