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 Barritts Ginger Beer

Pre-Light: 20 Points of 20 Possible

Satin-like finish to the smooth cocoa brown wrapper. A couple veins and a nice box press. Cap held up well to my Xikar guillotine. Firm cigar with no soft spots. Pre Light draw was tight due to the closed foot, got slight cocoa and barnyard aroma pre-light.

Light & Burn: 12 Points of 15 Possible

Lit this beast up old school with a large wooden match and we were on our way. Smoke volume was very adequate to start and increased with the progression of the smoke. Burn did start out a bit lopsided and I did finally correct about an inch in and it did not waver after that. Ash was a bit flaky but would hold on in about 1 1/2 inch increments.

Construction: 28 Points of 30 Possible

Cap is well applied and takes well to a guillotine. Wrapper is dark and smooth with  with only a couple small veins and smooth seams. Once lit and the closed foot is turned to ash the draw opens up to perfection.Construction is excellent on this large ring gauge cigar.

Flavor: 32 Points of 35 Possible

1/2: Retrohale delivers a lot of spice in the beginning and strength is medium plus right out of the gate with flavors of earth, leather and baking spices. Towards the end of the 1st half some metallic flavor comes into play.
2/2: Spice backs off a bit and the metallic (which I enjoy) increases a bit combined with a increase in leather,cocoa and earth. This has definitely moved to a full smoke.

Summary

OVerall I find this to be another fine offering from Riste @ JSK. I do tend to go for a bit smaller cigar these days but this 6 x 60 with the box press is a nice change of pace. This is the 2nd time smoking this particular blend and I found them both to be very similar. Thanks to Brian for sponsoring this one and letting me participate.
