Background Info

Striving for the highest quality, Jameson Cigar Co.’s sole strategy is to bring their love and appreciation of cigars and coffee right to the consumer through their product lines.

Mission Debrief

A few weeks ago, a communication came through the wire: Brad Mayo of Jameson Cigars was inquiring about any interested parties wanting to give a tasting to their private-label coffee line. Being that I am never one to pass up a great chance to try test or beta products, I replied back to the message, informing him that I was also interested in their cigars, as no local B&M’s carry their product. Not only did he send along the coffee, a couple of cigars found their way into the shipment as well.

The look-over on the Jameson Red Label shows their commitment to quality. No imperfections were found on the wrapper and the cigar felt properly rolled throughout its length. The wrapper had a slight feel of oil to it, which I am a fan of. I also detected a slightly sweet aroma to the cigar.

Using a cutter and butane lighter for this cigar, I was welcomed with a quick hit of dull spice right at the onset. The spice did not stick around for more than a few minutes, followed by hints of wood. The cigar smoked straight up medium bodied, balanced perfectly. Nothing harsh to the taste, just pleasant. I didn’t feel the finish to be any longer than normal for a cigar of this strength. If anything, it was a bit on the shorter side.

A great draw for this cigar with my cutter. Open and effortless. It also left a sturdy, gray ash. I never felt like I had to be near the ashtray at all times. The thick smoke from the cigar was also a nice touch. It’s always a bit disappointing for me to smoke a cigar and end up with puny, thin smoke.

Final Analysis

It’s a great down-the-middle medium bodied cigar, perfect for a morning smoke with the coffee or something for the evening. The price is very fair for this cigar and I think it’s something that both new smokers and seasoned pros can enjoy. I’ll be buying some of these in the near future.
