Red Meat Lovers is a top shelf, maduro liga that was created specifically to be smoked after enjoying a heavy meal of steak or prime rib.
"In fact, the blend was developed while simultaneously consuming
"chuleta de dos lomos" aka an export grade of prime Porterhouse steaks in Nicaragua with a varied selection of fine post digestif whiskeys and espresso.
Originally created as an annual single store exclusive at the request of the Red Meat Lovers Club to smoke at their charity dinners, this is one of those projects that I was beyond excited to do. Cigars and steaks go hand in hand, but to my knowledge no one has ever actually developed a blend specifically created to be enjoyed intentionally together as a 'pairing'. You would think this would be a rather straightforward task, but I took the responsibility very seriously in the selection of the various tobaccos to best compliment the hearty nature of beef.
In the last five years, this brand and blend has arguably become one of the most successful handmade cigar exclusives in the market. So it is with great pleasure that we have secured the rights to share this wonderful cigar with all of our Purveyors to offer their customers. Red Meat Lovers are handcrafted at the Nicaraguan American Cigar factory under the stewardship of their Master Cigar-maker Raul Disla at my direction". - Steve Saka
