Hiram and Solomon Veiled Prophet

This cigar is very dark. It is a “preview” sample from Robert Matthews of Hiram and Solomon. It has a kind of mysterious aroma from the foot. The bunch is firm and the cold draw is perfect. Tonight’s beverage is a Stone Brewing Totalitarian Imperial Russian Stout.



The cigar starts out very full bodied. There is a spicy zing on the tongue with an earthy base. The retrohale has a medium black pepper note. The ash is mottled grey and the burn is mostly even.



The first third is very smooth. A leather note has joined the flavor profile. The smoke is thick and pleasant. The burn is beginning to get uneven; I will give it some time.

During the second third the spices are so complex that they are very hard to identify individually. They are sweet and are dominant over the leather and earth in the flavor profile. The pepper notes are consistent in the retrohale. The burn is now very even.



Approaching the final inch the strength of the cigar is picking up. I’m dealing with a lot of humidity tonight and I think it’s affecting the burn. I had to correct it twice. Overall a very good cigar that is very full bodied. 8.7/10, Joe Bob says check it out.
