Paladin de Saka comes in one size, a 7 x 52 box-pressed Churchill. The blend starts with same components as the original Sin Compromiso blend: a Mexican San Andrés Negro “cultivo tonto” wrapper, Ecuadorian hybrid habano binder, and fillers from Nicaragua. The biggest difference is the addition of that one Pennsylvania Seedleaf in the filler. The “Cultivo Tonto” in the wrapper leaf description is a reference to a special growing method Saka uses that was inspired by Japanese fruit farmers. They actually remove the bottom leaves of the plant so bulk of the nutrients are sent to the upper leaves. So for this particular fruit and tobacco leaf, the yield is much lower and the cost is much higher, but the flavor is unique and powerful.
Some other differences between this and the regular line of Sin Compromiso include a regular box press, while the rest of the line is soft pressed. Paladin de Saka is also aged for an extra year before being sold. The band is also a slightly darker shade of pewter in the lighter areas. Each cigar carries an MSRP of $29.75 and come in boxes of 13.
