In recent years, there's been a resurgence of sorts for the Connecticut wrapper - and many blenders are finding a use for it, even on their heartier cigars. But when Steve Saka crafted Sobremesa Brulee cigars, he switched gears; his goal wasn't to appeal to bolder palates as others have done. Instead, he focused on making a classic cigar even better through quality tobaccos. His wrapper of choice for this Sobremesa is a silky blonde Ecuador Connecticut. Underneath, there's a diverse mix of leaves: Mexican Matacapan for the binder, and Nicaraguan fillers from Esteli, Condega, and Pueblo Nuevo. Brulee serves as a Saka’s time machine, bathing your taste buds in lush, creamy smoke filled with notes of cedar, nuts, leather, and a gentle spice - a quintessential experience of yesteryear. Order your box of this instant classic now!

The Sobremesa Brulee Toro is on the top of my list. Mild easy draw great taste good burn nice ASH great in the morning with coffee just as good at night with a nice cognac hats off to Steve Saka this cigar absolutely knocks it out of the park
The Sobremesa Brulle is my go to morning cigar along with coffee. It is one of the most tasteful Connecticut cigars you will find on the market. The profile features a sweet cream, caramel and nutty explosion of mild to medium goodness. The construction is impeccable and burn flawless. Definitely an excellent welcome into your humidor. Side note, I did say this is my morning cigar, but it also is great end of the evening/dessert cigar as well.
They were a good smoke nothing really super about it. The price was high
Got this cigar from a local shop and fell in love with it. It has great flavor and a decent smoke. One of my favorites. I will be ordering a box of them here shortly!
Rich, sweet, smooth, and perfectly constructed. The Brulee is the polar opposite of the standard Sobremesa. Where that cigar is about huge bold flavors to finish off a hearty meal, the Brulee is more about starting your morning with a cup of coffee and the perfect cigar. Notes of cream, vanilla, light roast coffee, toasty wood, and peanut are most dominant. A simply astounding cigar worth every penny.
I love a good Maduro cigar, but this Gordo, Ecuador Connecticut Shade was a GREAT SMOKE! Steve Saka knows cigars!
A silky smooth, sweet and creamy smoke that is balanced with the body and strength I expect to find with most Saka blends
I love this cigar. I ve smoked half a dozen or so. I tend to enjoy maduro and more full bodied cigars so I was worried about the Connecticut wrapper...don t judge a book by its cover! Only negative, is I loved them enough to buy a box of 13, and 6 of the 13 were cracked when I got them.
