Cigar Review: Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust Sobremesa Brulee Toro

Initial Thoughts:

I've had an interesting experience with Dunbarton Tobacco and Trust's cigars. While I've found them generally good, I've also found them unnecessarily expensive.

However, over the past few months, I've had several friends recommend that I give the Dunbarton Tobacco and Trust Sobremesa Brulee a try. And, given my newfound love of lighter cigars, I thought I'd smoke the Brulee today.

The Sobremesa Brulee toro is an interesting cigar. It's got an oddly smooth but textured wrapper, that looks like it has tiny crystals on it. After torching the end and cutting the tip, I immediately tasted very sweet flavors that led me to think this cigar had a sugar tip on it. We'll research that =) First impressions are flavorful ones!

Final Thoughts:

Wow, the Dunbarton Tobacco and Trust Sobremesa Brulee is a wonderful cigar. My stick had a great draw, a decent burn, and amazing flavors of sugar, roasted honey, and, occasionally, of citrus.

NOTE: I did find a transcript of an interview with Steve Saka. He said the Sobremesa Brulee does NOT have a sugar tip, but that the sweetness was natural and a byproduct of the fermentation process.

Because of its great construction, awesome flavors, and decent price point, the Dunbarton Tobacco and Trust Sobremesa Brulee provides a fun smoking experience and earns a CigarScore 5. I'm looking forward to smoking this cigar again!
