Cigar Review: Todos Las Dias

“Todos Las Dias is my personal Spanglish translation meaning ‘All the Days,’” said Steve Saka, Dunbarton’s owner, in a press release. “The workers at Joya de Nicaraguan often cringe at my casual butchering of their mother tongue, but in my opinion cigars are far more than a grammar lesson to abide, they are the physical manifestation of a feeling and of an experience.
