Today I’m smoking a cigar that until recently wasn’t sold outside of South Florida. The Sublimes has been in production since 2004, and only recently is in national distribution. These cigars are rolled in Little Havana, FL and feature a blend of Nicaraguan and Ecuadorian tobacco. For this review I smoked the Double Robusto, but this cigar is available in four other sizes:

  • Robusto – 4 3/4 x 50
  • Robusto Extra – 5 1/4 x 52
  • Grande – 6 3/4 x 56
  • Magnum – 6 1/4 x 58
  • Name: Sublimes
    Company: Sublimes Cigars
    Wrapper: Habano Ecuadorian Rosado
    Binder: Habano Nicaraguan
    Filler: Habano Nicaraguan
    Price: $7.60/stick
    Comes in: Box of 30
    Vitola: Double Robusto (5 3/4″ x 54)

    Final Thoughts

    First off the Sublimes performed extremely well. All of the cigars I sampled for this review burned slowly and evenly, leaving nice tight ashes that fell into my ashtray in 1.5 inch chunks. Tremendous amounts of smoke flowed from of these cigars by way of an easy draw. Total smoke time or the cigar I smoked during the review was one hour and 45 minutes.

    Flavor was not a disappointment either. The cigar was complex and well balanced and fit my flavor profile wonderfully. The cigar started off with a blast of black pepper which quickly mellowed to reveal a blend of flavors that kept me interested. The core flavors of this cigar was a combination of leather and nuts which was complemented by notes of lightly roasted coffee and sweet hay. I’d place this cigar in the medium body category, but it’s flirting with full-bodied.

    I’d definitely recommend trying this cigar. I don’t think I’d throw down the money for a full box, but do expect to pick up a five pack from time to time.

    I haven’t heard of these, but based on your review they sound like a cigar to try when I do see them. Thanks!
