Dunbarton Tobacco Sobremesa Brûlée

The Sobremesa Brûlée blend and flavor profile is an homage to the classic, milder, Connecticut Shade wrapped cigars that were popular years ago before fuller-bodied blend became popular.

According to Dunbarton founder Steve Saka: “Sobremesa Brûlée is a recreation of the milder, shade wrapped ligas of my early years. Somewhere over the last three decades many of the classic shade cigars have become wispy, uninspiring and rather dull to my palate. I wanted to share with others the way I remember these blonde cigars being. Also as ligador and tobacco man, I do not understand the recent trend of making strong Connecticut Shade cigars aka 'not your grandfather’s cigar'. To me this seems like an oxymoron and a fundamental lack of appreciation of the enchanting characteristics and nuances of shade grown Connecticut Seed tobaccos.

In Brûlée, I embraced this shade capa and dedicated myself to showcasing its mild, sweet and nutty nature. The Brûlée is a variation of the core Sobremesa liga in which the Pennsylvania Seedleaf ligero has been removed, the Condega Seco has been increased and the wrapper is replaced with a top shelf grade of BW Ecuador Connecticut Shade leaf. The result is a milder, even smoother adaptation of the Sobremesa blend that does not sacrifice its wonderfully complex flavors or aromas. This is not a cigar to be smoked casually, but rather a relaxing smoking experience meant to be savored slowly.”
