Saturday August 6.16. #SmoothDraws #CigarHerf
I smoked the 6.5 x 46 Jericho Hill by Crowned Heads.
Easy ignition using a Vertigo Lighter.
Tons of smooth, satisfying smoke filled the room.
The Cigar started off rather mild, with initial impressions of Cappuccino … then creaminess.
The ash fell early, within the 1st 1/3.
I prefer when an ash has some staying power.
But after the ash fell, a whole new set of tastes showed up.
It started with the nuttiness of chestnut, followed by distinct red berry fruit. Cranberry.
The Jericho Hill taste profile got deeper as the 1/2 way point approached.
Bitter Cocoa. A hint of gingerbread.
The aroma was topped off with a whiff of roasted meat.
Just as things were getting interesting … the cigar went out.
It re-lit easily and revealed the sweet spice of cinnamon.
Towards the end, the smoke became just a tad cloying, meaning it stuck to the hard palate a bit, but it wasn’t unpleasant.
What I really liked about it, is the tastes from this box-pressed #Cigar lasted well after the end. I was still tasting the cocoa and nuttiness an hour later.
“Jericho Hill is a hedonistic blend of the best Nicaraguan binder and filler tobaccos, resulting in a rich and robust taste profile that is focused, potent, and complex. The smoke is a full-throttle experience that assaults your palate at break-neck speed, races around your mouth for a hundred miles, and leaves your taste buds in a cloud of power, intensity, and excitement.
