Dunbarton, NH – Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust® will be debuting the Sobremesa Brûlée® blend of fine handmadecigars at this year’s 87th Annual Convention of the International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailers Association in LasVegas, Nevada, June 28th through July 2nd, 2019.
“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,” states Master Blender Steve Saka.“Also as ligador and tobacco man, I do not understand the recent trend of making strong Connecticut Shadecigars aka “not your grandfather’s cigar”. To me this seems like an oxymoron and a fundamental lack ofappreciation of the enchanting characteristics and nuances of shade grown Connecticut Seed tobaccos. In Brûlée,I embraced this shade cap a and dedicated myself to showcasing its mild, sweet and nutty nature.
He continues to add, “The Brûlée is a variation of the core Sobremesa® liga in which the Pennsylvania Seedleafligero has been removed, the Condega Seco has been increased and the wrapper is replaced with a top shelfgrade of BW Ecuador Connecticut Shade leaf. The result is a milder, even smoother adaptation of the Sobremesablend 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.
”Sobremesa Brûlée will be offered to Select Purveyors and it will be available in three vitolas: Brûlée Robusto –5.25 x 52, Brûlée Toro – 6.00 x 52 and the Brûlée Gordo 6.25 x 60. Packed in 13 count dress boxes, the MSRPranges from $12.45 to $13.95 per cigar. Initial availability will be very limited.
The anticipated ship date to those Select Purveyors who order at this year’s tradeshow is July 2019.
