Last year, Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust released the Sobremesa Brûlée, a high-end Connecticut-wrapped cigar that some people thought had a sweet tip. Steve Saka, the company’s founder, said it did not and instead thought people were tasting natural sweetness in the tobacco.
Now, people will have the chance to taste a Steve Saka-approved sweet-tipped Sobremesa Brûlée.
Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust is releasing a new sampler under the name STFU!!!, a double entendre that stands for “Saka’s Taste for U’rself” or the normal acronym of shut the fuck up.
Inside will be five 6 x 52 cigars, each labeled with either S, T, F, U or !. The cigars will be either a normal Sobremesa Brûlée, a sweet-tipped cigar or a double sweet-tipped.
The one catch is that Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust will wait until Sept. 15 to unveil which letter corresponds with each blend.
Saka told halfwheel the samplers will be priced at $59.50 and will begin shipping in August.
The Brûlée uses an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper over a Mexican binder and fillers from Condega, Estelí and Pueblo Nuevo, Nicaragua.
