Sobremesa Brulee Blue is a unique product within the Brulee line, developed by master blender and owner Steve Saka as an alternative to the fuller Sobremesa line. The Blue, in fact, is offered in a single size and with a limited production of only 1000 boxes of 13 cigars. The blend seems to have been improved for this version, even though, officially, the tobacco composition does not vary compared to the Brulee. An Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, Mexican Matacapan Negro de Temporal binder, and fillers consisting of four types of Nicaraguan leaves. After being rolled, the Blue rests for a year before being sold. Production is handled by the Joya de Nicaragua factory.
The cigar is wrapped in a bright Claro wrapper with yellow reflections. Visually the blue highlights on the band stands out as well. To the touch, the cigar is smooth, with barely noticeable veins. The craftsmanship is excellent, and the cigar’s head is finished with a particular “pigtail” that resembles a bun.
