To say that Steve Saka of Dunbarton Tobbaco & Trust is particular would be an understatement. He likes what we likes, he says what he likes, and he does what he likes. His motto for his brands (and he even named a line for this) is Sin Compromiso or without compromise. When he had purchased a crop of Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper for his Mi Querida line, there were some leaves that he deemed too ugly to use on this premium offering. This was tobacco of superior quality and tasted, but didn’t possess the uniformity that he required. As an avid fisherman, Saka decided to use this tasty tobacco to create the ultimate fishing cigar as Connecticut Boradleaf is very durable and holds up to the elements well. To compete the fishing theme, he named the cigar Umbagog after his favorite lake in New Hampshire.

Sobremesa, “over the table”, has no precise English translation, perhaps because there is no cultural equivalent in the US. It is an idiom used among the Latin culture to describe the leisurely time spent tableside after you have finished dining, but before you rise. It is the experience of lingering casually with family and friends in conversation, relaxing, drinking, smoking, and enjoying each other’s company. Sobremesa is one of life’s simplest, yet greatest pleasures. The Brûlée is a variation of the core Sobremesa liga in which the Pennsylvania Seedleaf ligero has been removed, the Condega Seco has been increased and the Capa is now a top shelf grade of Ecuador Connecticut Shade. The result is a milder, even smoother adaptation of the Sobremesa blend that continues to retain its wonderfully complex flavors and aromas.
