Southern Draw Jacob's Ladder Brimstone

Don’t look down…

What comes to your mind when you think of fire & brimstone? Maybe a lake of fire, maybe eternal damnation, maybe fiery atonement, but when we hear it, we can’t help but think of the latest line extension to Southern Draw’s Jacob’s Ladder: Jacob’s Ladder Brimstone. This is a cigar so bold Lucifer saves them for after-dinner, but so smooth the angels smoke ‘em for breakfast. The intensity sits a few notches higher than the original Jacob’s Ladder, but the flavors are still smooth enough to be accessible to just about any palate. 

The outside is the same as the original, a toothy Pennsylvania Broadleaf wrapper, but the Ecuador Maduro binder has been swapped for a heavy American-grown leaf. The Nicaraguan filler from the original is accompanied by Dominican tobacco, and a good amount of ligero was included to appease any double-ligero lovers out there. When fire meets Brimstone, you can expect a blast of spicy-yet-smooth flavors of pepper, cedar, earth, and espresso. Coming in just one 6” x 56 perfecto size, this is a cigar you won’t want to wait on. So cross yourself, say some Hail Marys, and order yourself a box of Brimstone today.

One of the best I've had...
I can't say enough good things about this cigar. Full-bodied, excellent draw, even burn. The one downside is that they seem to burn really fast, but then again that could be because I never put it down to rest.

Jacob reviews his Ladder

Jacob J.

CigarFest 2019 was a great weekend for me. I had just moved to Pennsylvania from Arizona to start at Cigars International a month or so before, and it was the perfect way to get to know a lot of my coworkers. Sure, maybe I got to know a few of them a little too well, but it was mostly a fantastic time for us, the vendors, the customers, and I suspect even some of the resort staff witnessing the debauchery. I also got to meet a lot of prolific master-blenders and company owners, one of whom was Robert Holt, head of Southern Draw Cigars.

Holt's a pretty pleasant guy to be around, with a firm handshake and a good sense of humor. We spoke briefly about a common interest, good bourbon, and at the end of the conversation he handed me a pre-release Southern Draw Jacob’s Ladder Brimstone. I decided to let it rest for a while, and when I saw that the Brimstone started arriving on our docks, I decided it was time to fire it up and tell the people what it’s all about.

The first thing I noticed is the aroma. This stick is pungent, always a harbinger of great flavors from well-fermented tobacco. It sort of smells like freshly-baked gingerbread, with a bit of heavy earth, and a little cocoa. It surprises me to pick up so much from just the wrapper and the tapered foot, because I know I’m hardly even smelling the filler at all. The cold draw is nice and toasty, with a good amount of sweetness over a solid backbone of earth and spice. 

It's not often you can tell that you’ll like a cigar from the first few puffs, but the Brimstone is an exception. The earth, leather, pepper, cocoa, and espresso beans are perfectly balanced from the get-go, an impressive feat considering the high ligero content. Even more surprising? I was called away from my desk for about 15 minutes and had to leave it, and when I got back the burn was still going strong!

The cigar continued to show a really excellent balance in the second half, with a bit more body and depth while keeping the same levels of spice & pepper. I took it down to about an inch left, and chucked it into my ashtray with satisfaction. That was a really good cigar. I unfortunately haven’t quite made my way through Southern Draw’s entire portfolio, but they’re absolutely on my radar after the great experience I had with the Jacob’s Ladder Brimstone.
