The differences between the original Sobremesa and the Brûlée begin with the Pennsylvania Seed leaf ligero that has been eliminated, continue with the Condega Seco, which has been raised, and wrap up with a top shelf grade of Ecuador Connecticut Shade for its wrapper. As a result, the Sobremesa blend has been modified to be more gentle, smoother, and to keep its delightfully nuanced flavor and aroma. It is a blend with mellow notes of cedar, caramel, and coffee that are enhanced by allowing its natural sweetness to flourish in the finish.
There is no exact English translation for Sobremesa, which means “over the table,” maybe because there is no cultural counterpart in the US. It is a Latin expression that refers to the leisurely period spent at the table following a meal but before continuing with the day. It is the act of relaxing with family and friends in conversation, unwinding, enjoying a drink and a cigar, and taking pleasure in one another’s companionship.
