The collaborative cigar blend between Steve Saka of DT&T, Evan Darnell of The Red Meat Lover’s Club, and Honest Abe Dababneh of Smoke Inn has become one of the most sought-after single store exclusive releases. Originally released in 2018 and 2019 in a 6 x 56 Toro Gordo, the acclaimed cigar returned in 2020 and 2021 in a 6 x 52 “Meat Box Pressed” format. The 2022 version to be release will be called “The Beef Stick” This particular size was produced in a very small run of a couple hundred bundles and was first offered to the attendees of this year’s Great Smoke VIP Dinner hosted by The Red Meat Lover’s Club and featured Steve Saka.
“The 6 x 48 version of this blend was such a big hit with everyone who had a chance to try it at the Great Smoke this year that it only seemed fitting to make this the size for the 2022 drop. To be completely honest, that is my vitola of choice. I know I probably sound like a broken record by saying this is now my favorite variation of this blend, but what can I say, it is the truth!” quoted Abe Dababneh of Smoke Inn.
Steve Saka States, “This is a unique take on the Red Meat Lovers’ Liga. The blend has been tweaked to make it a stronger variant of the Puro that delivers a spicier, fuller pop on the palate, yet remains true to the core earthy, meaty flavor profile. The vitola features a whimsical approach with its flat head and flat closed foot.”
In an effort to avoid insufficient production, website crashes, and secondary market gouging, for the first time in 2021 Smoke Inn allowed consumers to secure their cigars with a $25 deposit during a two-week open pre order period. This deposit, made to order, format will continue with “The Beefstick.” Consumers can secure as many of the 10 count bundles as they want with a $25 deposit per bundle. The open pre order period will begin March 25th and end on April 8th and can be completed at Smoke Inn’s website, www.smokeinn.com. Cigars are expected to arrive late November of this year at which time consumers who have paid a deposit will receive an email AND be notified through Smoke Inn account portal. At that time the balance can be paid, and cigars will ship immediately upon payment.
