"Simply put I really enjoyed this cigar. The vitola and profile is the one that I reach for in the humidor. It had some great bold notes to it but still had some sweetness throughout. The strength sneaks up on you towards the end. So make sure you had some food and maybe a Mexican coke nearby." -Quinn (quinnpins269)
Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust and Cigar Dojo are collaborating on a new Japanese-Themed Sobremesa Cigar. This marks the first time the two companies have collaborated on a cigar. The cigar is the Sobremesa Brûlée “Wagashi” 和菓子, a slightly tweaked version of the original Sobremesa Brûlée blue, Japanese-inspired twist. The name comes from a dessert delicacy of Japan that rose to cultural import during the Edo Period (1603-1857).

"If it weren't for the fact that this cigar had me woozy, I'd rank it higher. I'd love to see this in a smaller vitola, perhaps a robusto or Corona Gorda. If you love these powerful cigars and have a couple of hours to kill, this cigar is definitely for you. Rich bold flavors with a ton of strength. Not sure I'd smoke this again, especially in this vitola. Anxious to see what this was. Happy holidays to all of our readers out there!!" -Kevin J. (maninblack77)
"This was a very enjoyable and well-balanced dark noted smoke. With fairly constant subtle shifts it kept my interest level pretty high. I would put this in my box-worthy category. The strength is very manageable, and I could easily see it working well any time of day. The only minus is that the burn time is fairly quick for the size." -Chris M. (Chris)
"This was a very sweet deep dark chocolate fruity smoke. I don't often like sweet smoking cigars but this one was very enjoyable. The retrohale was very different with complex sweetness, red pepper bursts, and pipe tobacco flavor to it. I would really like to have a couple more of these to try and possibly consider added to my humidor. For the blind tasting I had a Mexican mineral water but I believe a good bourbon or peaty scotch would pair excellently with this smoke." -Chad M. (Chad Tchad)
"Overall this was a great cigar that gave me plenty of flavor transitions with leather, coffee, peanuts, cocoa, and cream, and even threw in some fruit flavors to round it all together. The cigar started out earthy and medium in strength and then developed into a more creamy sweet smoke with a mild to medium strength. I would happily smoke this again and I encourage you to seek these out. I feel this cigar can be enjoyed in the morning with your coffee.....or during your lunch, and even an after-dinner smoke. I am curious to know what this was." -Mickey T. (irratebass)

"This little cigar delivered high in the satisfaction department. Although small, it delivered very well on the flavor side, performed well, and did not take a long time to smoke. This could easily be added to my regular rotation when looking for a flavor-filled cigar that I can enjoy all of it when time is short, like during a lunch break at work or in the middle of a busy weekend day when I don't have 1 1/2 to 2 hours to sit and smoke a cigar. Can't wait to find out what this is!" -Kevin A. (Kevin A.)
