Another Brain child from the great mind of Steve Saka and named after his favorite fishing lake, the Umbagog doesn’t wade in calm waters. If you have already experienced a Saka creation, you come in with a preconceived idea of what this cigar will bring. Construction of this cigar was actually better than expected given that this is a value cigar using tobacco not suited for the more premium blends in Saka’s portfolio. The burn on this cigar was as expected and really nothing to mention it terms of oddities or surprises. Where this cigar lacked a little bit for us was in the flavor. It didn't turn us off but it also didn’t entertain us either, but what do you expect when you pay $7.00 for this cigar? This is really just us being Hypercritical and there is no doubt this cigar is a good value.
Hot Ticket Score
You can get your hands on this cigar for just around $8.00 which makes it a pretty damn good deal. There isn’t anything challenging about this cigar, so in terms of recommendation, but really feel there are some out there that may find this cigar to not be in their wheelhouse. If you do grab one, do yourself a favor… Drink it in the morning with a good cup of coffee. You won't regret it.
