My Weekend Cigars: Declaration by Jameson Iniquity

Reading Time: < 1 minute

The cigar was well-packed, neatly rolled and lit-up nicely. The initial flavors were somewhat leathery with a little spiciness upfront. It didn’t take long for the cigar to settle down to what I can only describe as a woody base with dark, earthy tobacco flavors, lots of depth, and just a hint of sweetness in the mix. With all the other cigar smokers puffing away around me, it was a bit difficult to zero-in on the aroma, but from what I could tell it was a woody and leathery.

The Declaration Iniquity was not a complex smoke, yet I was impressed by its excellent balance, straight tobacco taste, and long finish. I would classify the body as medium to full, but those new to cigars may find it a bit much, as it did build to a pretty heady smoke in the last act.

If you prefer a cigar that delivers a good clean tobacco taste and plenty of smoke, I suggest you give the Declaration Iniquity a try. Maybe you’ll like it enough to check out Jameson’s other fine cigars. They may not be a household name yet, but then, I’ve always believed in “the slow build.”
