Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust Sin Compromiso – Initial Thoughts

This was one of my favorite smokes from last year’s IPCPR.  Since I’m resting a few sticks from IPCPR 2019, I thought I’d revisit it for a review.

Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust Sin Compromiso – First Third

Mexican hot chocolate, cream, banana bread

Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust Sin Compromiso Review

From the beginning, this stick is a chocolate lover’s delight.  There is very little spice which allows me to retrohale a good amount of the smoke.  Ash and burn are solid and razor sharp.

Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust Sin Compromiso – Second Third

Chocolate, baking spices, coffee, cascara

Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust Sin Compromiso Review

No touch-ups necessary as this cigar continues to put out rich flavors.  The wrapper is beginning to crack in one spot, but does not travel quite to the band so the ash should swallow it up soon enough.  The bold notes have a sort of weight to them that lingers on the palate like a chocolate dessert.

Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust Sin Compromiso – Final Third

Banana bread, red pepper spice, cocoa, coffee, peanuts

Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust Sin Compromiso Review

The band came off with ease and caused zero wrapper damage.  Touched up the burn a bit even though it was just slightly wonky.  Less sweetness in this third, but in no way does that take away from the flavor department.  Pretty near flawless.

Great Burn

Chocolaty Goodness


High Price Point

I'm a huge fan of this cigar and knew that going into the review. The price point is a bit steep for me, but I always want a few of these in my humidor for special occasions.
What Other Folks Are Saying: 1 Make some Noise
Simply the best
The name means “no compromise” and Steve Saka’s not kidding when he named this cigar. The farming practices used to grow and harvest the best leafs used in this cigar down to the rollers and experience of smoking it are top notch. The aroma given off is fantastic and the cigar is flavorful. This is a smoke everyone should have on hand.
