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 Corona Extra

Pre-Light: 19 Points of 20 Possible

This cigar gives off a very nice aroma of fermented tobacco’s.  The wrapper was slightly oily with small veins through it and feels firm throughout.  The cap was nicely done and cut clean with a Xikar ultra cutter

Light & Burn: 10 Points of 15 Possible

The initial ½ inch this cigar burned pretty straight and things went south from there with a bit of a runner and jagged.  I let it go hoping to correct itself.  It didn’t, so a touch up was done at 2 inches in.  That didn’t help, it went jagged again and never straightened out.  This cigar gave off plenty of smoke.  The ash was lighter grey and flaky.  It did burn what you would expect of a 60 ring cigar.

Construction: 28 Points of 30 Possible

Overall construction was well done, the wrapper was rolled flawless with very small veins. The wrapper was folded over the foot.  There was no band on this cigar.  The cap appeared to be a triple cap and well-constructed.  The draw was only slightly restricted and near perfect to me

Flavor: 27 Points of 35 Possible

First few draws were very strong almost harsh then transitioned into full flavored spice and leather.  Into 2/3 and still a lot of spice, leather and some woody flavors. It was full in strength and body. The flavors started to blend together more for a more enjoyable flavor. I got a little more flavors at 1/2 way with a bit of a molasses or baking spices mixed with the spice and leather, but on the downside, there was some almost charred woody flavor. In the last third, the flavors got a bit sour with the same flavors throughout

Summary

By appearance, this was a well-constructed cigar.  I was disappointed with the burn and the flavors never really blended or developed any complexity making it an enjoyable cigar.  The flavors were very bold and only showed any promise in the 2/3 point when the molasses flavors kicked in briefly.  IMO, this cigar could have possibly benefited from some rest in a humidor before smoking.  Overall not a bad cigar but not so good either.  The scoring could be a bit generous on this cigar
