First teased at Smoke Inn’s 2022 The Great Smoke event last month, the South Florida-based retailer has now announced details on the national release of the Red Meat Lover’s Club “The Beefstick” by Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust.

This three-part collaboration includes Steve Saka (DTT), Evan Darnell (Red Meat Lover’s Club), and Abe Dababneh (Smoke Inn), first releasing the RMLC cigar to be paired with steak dinners in 2018. The RMLC cigar was re-released in 2019, being followed with the 6″ x 52 “Meat Box Pressed” version of the blend in 2020 and 2021. The blend now undergoes its third variation, featuring a 6″ x 48 format that is closed at both ends.

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.”

The cigars have somewhat of a unique release strategy, where pre-order deposits will be accepted during a two-week period. This process was used for last year’s release as well, helping to reduce the chances of site crashes when the cigars go live:

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, 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.

The Beefstick is packaged in 10-count bundles, making use of a slightly stronger/spicier version of the original blend. This includes a Connecticut Broadleaf No. 1 Dark wrapper, San Andrés negro oscuro binder, and fillers of Nicaragua and the US. Pricing is set at $13/cigar ($135/bundle), shipping in Nov. of this year.
