Jeremy Jack Libelula - Cigar Review

Jeremy Jack Libelula
5 1/4 x 54 Robusto
NOTES:
As stiff and heavy as a Hillary Clinton pantsuit. Invisible seams, as she employs only the finest of tailors. Toothy as Bill's grin. Draw is a tick rigid, but even and satiating/saturating. Burns a bit wobbled and errs toward coning a bissell. No re-touching needed. Excellent smoke out-put. Burnt-offerings are dense and grow quite well into a medium-grey sheath. Nubs-out firm and cool

  • Black pepper
  • Cayenne pepper
  • Semi-sweet chocolate
  • Grains, darkly toasted
  • Espresso
  • Bourbon cask
  • Hickory
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • Leather, stiffly
  • Manure

Texture is verily smoov, given its heaviness and height of notes. Even thorough the schnoz, where its piquancy makes me shed a single manly tear. Ne'er throaty nor spitty. A nicely delineated balance of sweet and spicy, then sour and umami. Pleasant pinch a' saltiness. Excellent tongue-tingle. Finish is a long and complex extension of draw with new nuances. Ends admirably clean... unlike a Hillary Clinton speech to my ears. Strength mounts through-out, but kindly-so. I'm schvitzing come 3/3, with nary a care in the woiyld -- like Bill.
