69. Jas Sum Kral Crna Nok Robusto

Store bought at Kind Cigars.

Location: This review was made indoors in a cigar lounge.

Wrapper: Dark brown almost black. A little rough or sandpaper like wrapper. Tiny veins.

Construction: Firm and pretty even filled.

Cold draw: A touch of dark chocolate, but much flavour.

1st third: Dark chocolate and a touch of caramel. The aftertaste is exactly like if you take a bite of a 80% dark chocolate bar, bitter and earthy.

2nd third: A little spicy note like black pepper and nutmeg.

The burn: Burns pretty good, sharp and crispy stable white ash.

Smoke: Light, white smoke and a tad bit hot.

3rd third: No dramatic changes from part 2.

Conclusion: Not really my cup of tea. A bit to dark, not heavy but dark flavours. Still good cigar, but not for everyone.

Result: In my book this is a 88 point cigar.

68. Jas Sum Kral Zlatno Sonce Robusto

Store bought at Kind Cigars.

Location: This review was made indoors in a cigar lounge.

Wrapper: Smooth, tiny veins and it’s light brown in colour.

Construction: Firm and pretty even filled.

Cold draw: Light, a touch of hay and leather.

1st third: Very interesting start, pencil wood, fresh leather like a new bag or car interior. There is spicy note of white pepper in the back and a creamy sweetness like fudge or butterscotch in the front. Delicious. Maybe a smidge of creamy 35-40% milk chocolate.

2nd third: Same creamy flavours as part 1. There is also a spicy pepper in the back of the mouth.

The burn: Burns well, sharp and has a crispy stable white ash.

Smoke: A creamy lush white smoke, sadly it brings some medium heat. Also there’s a light draw.

3rd third: Suave finish with a touch of medium roasted coffee.

Conclusion: Amazing cigar, very much in my tasting palett. Creamy and smooth, very interesting taste. I can’t imagine anybody not liking it.

Result: In my book this is a 95 point cigar.

18. Jas Sum Kral Red Knight Lancero

Sponsored by Piet van Kuyk. First nose: Mild sweetness, creamy chocolate and hay.
First taste: Smooth creamy milk chocolate. Matches amazingly with a cup of hot chocolate with cream. It’s like they where ment for each other.
The creaminess flows through whole cigar, pure relaxation, no sudden surprises just a mild creamy dream.
As I wrote in my previous review, all reviews I write is done outside so the tastes may vary for me and for you. At this day of smoking and writing it’s 3 degrees Celsius outside and it’s raining. And as written earlier I’m drinking an hot chocolate as I was kinda freezing and after a whiff of the wrapper I felt this was the perfect match.
89/100 yes I like this very much, it’s near to a perfect cigar, and I will definitely return to this again. But I feel like this is not an every day choice for me since it’s really mellow, but a nice compliment as the last cigar before going to bed since it hasn’t very much nicotine. Kudos to Riste.
This cigar will soon be available here in Sweden trough Kind Cigars.
And thanks to Piet van Kuyk @illestcigarsprovider for giving me the opportunity to try it out.

15. Jas Sum Kral – Red Knight Longsdale

Sponsored by Piet van Kuyk. First nose: A very creamy gentle milk chocolate whiff I get.
First taste: As the tone of the wrapper I taste smooth creamy milk chocolate, like the creaminess in a vanillasauce with that hint of vanilla.
This cigar was enjoyed with an Café au lait, which balanced the flavours perfectly. Coffee and chocolate are great in combination as is the creamy vanilla notes with the milk.
Way past the midway point I’m feeling roasted hasselnuts. And the smoke gets a bit dryer as it warms up. Since its an Longsdale the ring gauge isn’t very big and it’s totally normal that it feels a bit warmer.
Since this review was written/smoked while I sat outside in 9 degrees Celsius, the flavours maybe wasn’t at peak but rest assure it was good but I can imagine it be even better while sitting inside by the open fire.
8/10 will be my score, it’s definitely a well balanced cigar and very good, no denying that.
Any downside with creamy light smokes for us up north is it gets a bit to soft during autumn/winter. The flavours don’t bloom out as much. /Cigarmaster André

11. Jas Sum Kral Robusto

Sponsored by Piet van Kuyk. First nose: I know this sounds weird but I get the sense of what Tobacco smells like, chocolate (like cornetto ice cream chocolate), leather, pepper and some kind of caramel sweetness.
First taste: Wood, definitely wood and like chili chocolate and weirdly freshly home made bread, like how the flour sticks to the top of the mouth. It’s definitely a spicy cigar this one.
It’s really giving away a rich fluffy white smoke and the ash is crisp white, just wonderful.
After smoking about haft I can say it definitely smoothens out or maybe it’s just me that adapt to the straight.
I got this wonderful cigar from Piet van Kuyk (@illestcigarsprovider), a cigarshop in The Netherlands.
Because sadly it’s not available in Sweden at the moment.
8.5/10 would definitely buy again and I strongly recommend anybody trying it if you get a chance if you like stronger cigars. /Cigarmaster André
