John Bull The Dark Hour

The Dark Hour is upon us...

When you want to feel like a snob or impress your friends & colleagues, you might reach for an ornate, pricey cigar. But what about when you just want a great stogie to puff on and really enjoy? Smart aficionados looking for smooth, balanced flavors and great construction that won't break the bank reach for John Bull. The Dominican-made gems might not look as pretty as the major labels, but one puff and you'll always want to keep these on hand.

John Bull Dark Hour is the first follow-up to the original John Bull, a CI Nation favorite. Handmade in the Dominican Republic, The Dark Hour wears a rich & oily Maduro wrapper over Dominican-grown long-fillers blended to produce a medium-full bodied profile of espresso, roasted nuts, and earth. This isn't a spice bomb, but the flavors will sit nice and heavy on your palate, and will pair well with any drink you decide to enjoy on the side. So go ahead, grab a box of John Bull The Dark Hour, and enjoy premium deliciousness for a fraction of what the big guys charge.

worth trying
deliciously acceptable in an affordable range. The taste and aroma is definitely similar to the Sinclair 55 maduro. The smoke is thick and helps with the irritating insects of Northern Michigan. The flavor is quite mild and the aroma is medium in strength and delightfully pleasant (actually the aroma is more gratifying than the flavor, but you can't always get a Partagas without ordering one). If you like the full flavor and aromatics of the darker cigars, this is a likely contender for your garden variety mosquito chaser. The price is nice as well - give it a try (I started out with a 5pack and escalated my purchase the following month into the churchill size, for a full box).

Pleasantly Surprised
These are really good for the value. Most would consider it a "yard gar" but there's a lot of flavor and a lot of smoke packed in these. I picked these up cheap on a sale and had low expectations, but have been happy with their flavor and quality. I would gladly buy them again.

Good quality cigar, just not for me
I am a HUGE fan of the Connecticuts, and was excited to see the maduro come out. I gave it 3 stars not because it wasn’t a good cigar but because it simply wasn’t for me. If you are a fan of the La Palina Black then you will love it because it actually tastes better (less of the plastic taste) with identical smoke output.

Best Sunday afternoon, smoke

Not bad per say. If you like the Palina Black you will like it. If you don’t it will just be plastic tasting smoke. I am a huge fan of the Connecticut.

Kind of soft
I liked the cigar flavor but it was kind of soft.

More flavor than the regular John bull
While I won't be mistaken for a top shelf cigar it's definitely a half step, maybe a whole step even above yard gar. Honestly, this is probably a three-star cigar oh, maybe even three and a half Stars. The catch it on sale and its a 4 star!

Got this 5 pack as a freebie. Would consider buying them again. I like to smoke every day if possible. This one fits the bill. Quick smoke (like 30-45 Min)
