Jas Sum Kral Red Knight
Jas Sum Kral (JSK) – heard of them yet? Well, if you have then you know, if you haven’t you need to. Jas Sum Kral – Macedonian translation is I am King. Relatively new company that has sought to make a cigar with Cuban flavors and their own twist. Ya, I know, yawn at this point like I did. Then I smoked it. You know what turned me off on Cubans some time ago? All the damn floral pounding my palate. Guess what? JSK has taken the floral out and added a little more kick! The Red Knight is solid medium in body and strength. Flavors I pick up on in this complex gem are pepper, earthiness, leather, coffee, cream, vanilla and sweet aged tobacco. This is a really damn good cigar!! If you like Cubans, you’ll like this. If you like non-Cubans with that flavor profile, you’ll like this. Damn, they seem to have hit everyone!!
