Jas Sum Kral (JSK) Toothpick 2.0 Maduro
WRAPPER: Mexican San Andres Maduro
FORMAT: Robusto 550
ORIGIN:Tabacalera de Aragon S.A, Nicaragua
NOTES: Sweetly spiced wood. Darkly-so >>> Molasses, black pepper, chili powder, charred oak. Pumpernickel is a high up undertone forefront. Then savory earth. Quite nice. ### Needless chevrons & hashtags aside,
"All said, the [Habano] Toothpick quite serviceably fills the company's bottom shelf, a la the Ventura Slaughterhouse, Illusione Cigars Cuchillos Cubanos ((( link ))), & Tatuaje Series P." is what I said of the Habano Toothpick iteration ((( link )))
This Maduro has a decent spot on any JSK shelf, a shelf that's no slouch of height -- for a simply enjoyable smokeable stick. Finish is sweet, clean, uncluttered. Flavors are simple but not boring. Nice.
