The release is Sobremesa Brûlée, a new Connecticut line that is made to harken back to the classic milder cigars that have fallen out of fashion with new age smokers but remain strong sellers for many brands. Steve Saka, Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust’s founder, told halfwheel he didn’t want to make a new age Connecticut, rather a classic cigar with high quality materials.
“I have always been reluctant to do it as there are so many classic Connecticuts in the marketplace and most of my consumers could care less for this style of cigar, but I started resmoking many of the mainstays,” said Saka. “Somewhere over the years they have just become too bitter and grassy.”
The blend has an Ecuadorian Connecitcut shade G2BW wrapper, Mexican Matacapan negro de temporal binder, and Nicaraguan fillers, including Condega C-SG, Pueblo Nuevo Criollo, La Joya Estelí C-98 and ASP Estelí hybrid ligero.
