BACKGROUND: In mid-2015, Steve Saka publicly announced his plans to return to the cigar industry, a decision that was much anticipated and enthusiastically received. The first cigar under this new company is called: Sobremesa. This cigar is currently limited in its availability, with the pace of its production being dictated by the availability of the tobaccos.
Sobremesa comes in 6 sizes and this week’s featured stogie is the 5.25-inch by 44 ring gauge Sobremesa Corona Gorda.
FEATURED LIBATION: Taylor Fladgate 20-year Tawny Port
The 20-Year-Old Tawny Port that I’m featuring today is fully matured in seasoned oak casks each holding about 630 litres of wine. Here, over many years of aging, the Port wine gradually takes on its characteristic amber ‘tawny’ color, slowly developing the complex mellow flavors and the smooth luscious palate, which are the hallmarks of this style of port.
