Cigar Geeks Geek Critique

Jas Sum Kral !@#%$ the FDA Pre-Release

Cigar Geeks Rating

Welcome to a Geek Critique of a cigar generously provided to us by our friends at Jas Sum Kral.  https://jassumkral.com/  After a bit of teasing, the company says that it will sell a new line of cigars called “!@#%$ (or F) the FDA” at the upcoming Tobacco Plus Expo (TPE) 2020. Since this cigar is a pre-release, Riste Ristevski, the company’s owner, declined to answer questions about further details surrounding the cigar, instead he replied with a band that displayed the brand’s name along with a background comprised of middle fingers.  Special thanks goes out to Riste for providing the sticks and bstessl (Brian) for coordinating this!

This cigar was enjoyed with Walthen's Single Barrel Bourbon

Pre-Light: 9 Points of 10 Possible

The cigar wrapper had a couple of prominent veins. The firmness of the cigar was hard but did not impact the draw. The wrapper was dark and had a nice silky feel. The triple cap cut well and maintained construction without falling apart. The aroma was earthy and nutty with hints of cedar.

Light & Burn: 14 Points of 15 Possible

The cigar burned perfectly from start to finish and never needed a relight. Nice white ash that held to 2 inches until I knocked it off to avoid wearing it. Ash did not flake all over me which I really appreciate. Smoke volume was good, not too much and cigar lasted about 70 minutes.

Construction: 28 Points of 30 Possible

Cap was perfect after straight cut, no bits of tobacco in the mouth. Draw was perfect as burned even the entire time without need relights or touch ups. Nice smooth wrapper, had a couple of veins but did not impact the burn at all.

Flavor: 40 Points of 45 Possible

Fairly complex taste profile on this smoke. Started out with woody, grassy notes and by the end of the first third a nutty, earthy taste developed. 2nd third developed a slight metallic taste but it went away quickly, last third it had mellowed to mostly wood and earth flavors.

Summary

This was a very enjoyable cigar. Medium to slight full at  midpoint, medium at the end. Perfect burn and smoke volume, great construction and an overall pleasant experience. Definitely want to get some more of this cigar.

Thanks for letting me participate!
