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!

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
