Cigar Geeks Geek Critique

Jas Sum Kral Golem Covek

Cigar Geeks Rating

Welcome to another Member sponsored Geek Critique.  This one has been generously sponsored by our member bstessl (Brian).  The cigar provided for this round is the JSK Golem Covek.

This is a limited release that may end up going into production in the distant future.
Too rare to know for sure but here is something from another blend: The Jas Sum Kral RED KNIGHT has all of that in a full bodied cigar along with a dessert like creaminess that keeps your interest all the way to the last puff. If your looking for a complex, smooth full body cigar with a spicy creamy finish and relaxing draw, look no further than the Jas Sum Kral. The Crna Nok - "theres a tingling in the back of the throat and while this cigar is smooth as !@#%$, I can feel the nicotine buzz coming..must be that Double Ligero kicking in. The Retro stills give the same effect but for me the sweetness in the after taste is building more. Its definitely a unique cigar."

This cigar was enjoyed with Water

Pre-Light: 18 Points of 20 Possible

Beautiful dark brown wrapper with few darker splashes of color.  Firm, with a soft box press, closed foot.  Very few veins.  Not a lot of aroma, hints of cocoa and wood.  Cap clips perfectly, opens up some additional aromas of a baked brown bread.  Cold draw is very free for such a well packed cigar.

Light & Burn: 13 Points of 15 Possible

Cigar lights up easily and quickly with the closed foot.  Initial burn, first 1/2 inch is sharp, but then develops a slight wobble with a little runner.  Stays that way thru thru he first half, but catches up going into the final third
Ash is white with some black streaks, slightly flaky but very solid.  I finally knocked it off after 2 inches to help the burn.  Came off in a solid chunk.
The amount of smoke is impressive.  Overall the burn rate seems about right for this size.  After both a 3 and 6 minute rest it smoked liked I never sat it down.  No relights

Construction: 28 Points of 30 Possible

Overall construction is excellent.  The draw was very good for a well packed cigar.  No issues with the wrapper.  The cap held up solid thru the entire smoke no fraying never got too soft seemed to hold the moisture really well

Flavor: 32 Points of 35 Possible

First 1/3: Shows some very early strength for a larger cigar.  Early mixture of flavors that are focused on what appeared in the cold draw cocoa, pepper and a surprising taste of raisin.  The retrohale really shows the pepper that really lingers. As you finish the first third you begin to lose the raisin and cocoa but pick up some richness

Second 1/3: The pepper continues to dominate the flavors and really shows up strongly in the retrohale. beginning to feel some slight burn in the back of the mouth.  towards the end of the third is seems to mellow just a bit

Final 1/3: The pepper parade continues, showing some signs of toning down. Begins to pick up some heat and the burn in the mouth is still there.  Not a lot of change from the second third

Summary

thank to the generosity of some mid-west Geeks I have had the opportunity to enjoy a few JSK blends and this one is slightly stronger than the Red Knight.  I don't think this would pair well with my sipping gins but a good dark roast coffee would go well.  Will be looking for this one to be released and will pick some up for sure
Smoke time 1:45
