This cigar has a very dark brown, almost black, silky feeling wrapper. No visible seams and no veins. The slightest spongy give when squeezed. Hay, wood and sweet tobacco aromas come off the foot. Mild aged tobacco flavors come on the pre-light draw.
The draw is perfect providing plenty of smoke. Dark rich earthy tobacco flavors come on the draw with hints of cedar and a bit of sweetness. The oily finish has notes of leather and earth with just a hint of pepper. The cedar picks up a bit after about an inch. The finish starts to mellow out and the pepper fades. The ash held for about half of the cigar. The smoke was smooth and flavorful the rest of the way. The San Andres wrapper helps make this a world class smoke.
The Jericho Hill OBS is an excellent cigar. Great construction and performance. Perfect draw and burn down to the nub. Smooth, rich and flavorful. Crowned Heads and My Father have done it again. What can I say, I'm a huge fan boy of both. Keep it up guys. I'm a customer for life.
