Dunbarton makes a fine cigar called “Mi Querida,” but along the way they found some wrapper leaf that, while it was of excellent quality in terms of flavor, was not quite pretty enough for Mi Querida standards. So, what do you do when you have a cigar that doesn’t have the appearance you were hoping for? Use it for a new “value” line!
Oh my gog, what a great idea!
Umbagog (say: um-BAY-gog) is actually the name of a lake in Coös County, New Hampshire where Saka likes to go fishing. It’s right by the border with Maine and the name comes from the Abenaki Indian phrase for “shallow water.” As Saka reports, you can pull a ton of huge smallmouth bass out of the water, and you’ll also be kept company by eagles, osprey, and the occasional moose grazing or otter playing. Sounds like heaven, right? Only if you have the right cigar!
The Dunbarton Umbagog was designed to be fairly rugged – a fisherman’s friend, strong enough to take a trip out into the wild or to live between your teeth when you’re out doing yard work, building a treehouse, or any other project that gets you out of the house. It’s got a nice hearty Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper and a classic Saka Nicaraguan blend inside that delivers flavors of creamy oak, almonds, dark cocoa, and black pepper.
As Saka says, “This is a cigar that doesn’t pretend to be special or seek to elicit the ‘oohs or aahs’ of the cigar snobs. It is an honest, hardworking cigar that is meant to be smoked, chewed upon and lit however many times you wish.” So, you officially have permission to smoke this one your way (as if you needed it).
