Jas Sum Kral (JSK) Cigars Red Knight | Cigar Review Redux by Kaplowitz

“Have you Kaplowitz’d to-day?”

Jas Sum Kral (JSK)
Red Knight

WRAPPER: Ecuadorian Habano
BINDER: Mexican San Andres & Jalapa Seco

FORMAT: Robusto, pig-tail & closed foot
ORIGIN: Nicaragua
STRENGTH: Medium-Full



Engaging notes of black cherry & cocoa buttery cedar. Smooth & tingly at the same time. Toasted and roasted, simultaneously. A certain citrusy tanginess to the pepper-spices of white/black/red/cayenne, cinnamon, paprika, chili powder. 

Undertones to the aforementioned overtones: brown sugar, cola, leather. Milk chocolate fills it up in the 2/3 & onward. Finish is a sweet tangy residual of draw notes on lengthy-legs and a definite Merlot at the far-end. Complex, nuanced, excellent.

Burns straight and grows solid ash from there. I break off the burnt offerings in thirds. Draw exhibits a perfect tension, evenly-so. Big smoke out-put both passive and active builds a fruity spicy leathery room-note.
