Here's the first interviews that I've heard a cigar maker go into some specific details on his cigar manufacturing.
He seems to not worry about letting out some details of what goes into his cigar blends.

This next video is a long one so not sure how many of you will watch the whole thing but alot of info in it.

I heard in one of his videos he talks about leaving the vane in the frog legged leaf to help with the burn.

I like Saka, he is a real cigar guy. I remember him way back during his JR Cigar days and glad to see he's still around. Agree that the info on his blend is great and could benefit us RYO guys guys.

After hearing this interview, I went to look at their site. http://www.dunbartoncigars.com/
Its a pretty site, but what I thought interesting was they list their blend. Not quantities, but more specific on what tobaccos.
