A “tweaked” version of the Sobremesa Brûlée line is now expected to be available this August.
Steve Saka, founder of Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust, announced that he hopes to have the Sobremesa Brûlée Blue on shelves in August. The cigar is described as a 6 1/4 x 46 parejo that will feature a pigtail. It is a “tweaked” version of the Sobremesa Brûlée line which uses an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper over a Mexican binder and four different Nicaraguan fillers.
In addition, the Blue has been aged for at least a year after rolling.
Saka declined to talk specifics about the blend with halfwheel, saying he preferred to wait until the cigar is on sale for retail stores. He also has not finalized a price for the cigar.
Brûlée Blue was originally scheduled to be offered at the 2020 PCA Convention & Trade Show, which was scheduled to take place July 11-14 in Las Vegas but has since been canceled due to the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic.
The Sobremesa Brûlée Blue is limited to 1,000 boxes of 13 cigars.
