MUESTRA DE TABAC BRAZILIAN/SUMATRA GREEN CIGARS
Muestra de Tabac Trifecta Brazilian Mata Fina & Sumatra. That is a long name for a very unique cigar. So unique that Tabac Trading Company has a patent-pending. The owner of Tabac Trading is Patrick Potter, who grew up in a tobacco store. His grandfather owned the original Tinder Box. Five years ago, in 2015, Potter decided to start a cigar company and traveled over Latin America to learn from experienced blenders. He has seen farms in every country, learned all about fermentation, characteristics of the tobacco and how to blend them together. And with his creativity, he developed the Trifecta line.
There are three different blends in the Trifecta series. For this review, we decided to go for the Brazilian Mata Fina & Sumatra. That’s the one with the green label. This perfecto can be smoked from both sides. The ring is mirrored, so it looks right from whatever side you smoke it. One side has a Sumatra wrapper, the other side has a Mata Fina wrapper. The binder is viso from Cameroon. The fillers all come from Nicaragua, where this cigar is produced.
