The Sobremesa is a cigar that’s been heavily discussed this year. Originally released in 2015 by Steve Saka of “Dunbarton Tobacco and Trust. Saka is a former Drew Estate President & CEO who ran the company between 2005-2013. He’s credited with creating the Liga Privada #9…six words, The Guy Knows His Cigar Shit.
The ties with Drew Estate must still be tight because he’s producing the Sobremesa out of the Joya De Nicaragua factory in Estili Nicaragua…Drew Estate recently purchased Joya. Don’t forget Drew Estate is owned by Swisher brand.
I’m yanking the below text straight from Cigars International where you can purchase this cigar,
“Sobremesa hails from the Joya de Nicaragua factory in Nicaragua and pays homage to what made Saka fall in love with cigars. The blend begins with a dark Ecuadorian Rosado wrapper hugging a Mexican binder from Matacapan and a long-filler blend of Nicaragua tobaccos and PA Broadleaf ligero. Sobremesa begins with an earthy sweetness and progresses to include flavors of spice, nougat, cedar, and coffee to provide a pleasant and evolving experience.”
The Sobremesa was excellent. I came at it skeptical because of all the chirping in the cigar community. The cigar started out great and finished great all the way to a nub (and stayed cool the entire time). The cigar looks beautiful with a very dark chocolate brown wrapper and a unique looking band. Some people aren’t crazy about the band but I thought it paired well with the darkness of the cigar.
The flavors were super well done and crazy smooth. In the beginning there was a bit of a peppery earth that was creamy in texture. This was followed by some chocolaty goodness and cream with a hint of earth. The burn, construction and draw on this were perfect – zero complaints.
It’s a smooth enjoyable experience and one that I recommend. The only caveat to this stick is the price. I received this free from a buddy but apparently its retailing for about $15 a pop. I’m not saying that its not worth the money based on flavors and time buttttt…thats steep. I would say this things a sure thing at about $10.00.
