An extremely dark wrapper covered this cigar. It had a thick texture and smooth feel between the fingers. The cigar was light in the hand and solid to the touch. It had an effortless draw along with a slow, even burn that made this effortless to enjoy overall. It had bitter chocolate with sweet, smoky cedar notes on the pre-light taste. The pre-light nose was mild and clean. Once lit it offered a full chocolaty aroma that filled the room with a rich, warming quality. The cigar intensified as it was smoked. There was a creaminess in the aroma of the smoke as well as in the texture on the palate. It was very rich in flavor with a body that was present but never overwhelming. It developed, as the cigar was smoked, full with a long, full flavored finish that left a lasting impression. The smoke was dense, with an almost chewy texture that was loaded with full flavors and subtle black peppery spices that lingered throughout the experience. A great cigar to sit back with and enjoy.

Way to much pepper
Lots of big chocolate flavors. Earth And light leather. Good offering from Southern Draw.
Southern Draw down not make a bad cigar.. love this one..
Absolutely impeccable cigar! One of my favorites!
Beautiful smooth dark wrapper with a firm bunch and a perfect draw. Aromas of dark chocolate from the shaggy foot and wrapper, more of a spicy vibe from the cold draw. Owner Robert Holt says smoke this one after a good meal. Initial notes are cayenne dark chocolate and cedar. Also very rich, well aged tobacco. It has not knocked me over yet but has already threatened me once. I told it, \"F* you, I\'m Milford!\" and kept smoking, picking up some latte notes. The ash is a firm medium grey and the burn is perfect. The ale is fermented over coffee and cacao nibs and is perfect for this cigar. First third really brought out the dark chocolate and cedar notes with espresso in the background. Knocked the ash off to avoid the ash lap I got yesterday, revealing a conical burn that showed the ligero to be slightly off center, but not terribly so. In the second third the cayenne came through on the retrohale, adding some oomph to the flavor profile. The burn is a little off, but not enough to correct yet. The smoke is plentiful and smooth. The bands slid off perfectly with no damage to the wrapper. At about half I touched up the wrapper and the burn is even again. The smoke remains cool and smooth with lots of flavor. At 13%, I am drinking the ale sparingly as to not affect the finish, which is as flavorful as the smoke. Approaching the final inch of the cigar, the smoke remains cool and pleasant while the strength is picking up, especially the cayenne in the retrohale.
I’m personally love a full and peppery cigar and the experience I had with the Jacobs Ladder was just that. The 1st third was a powerhouse that I felt kicked my mouth with a ton of flavor and then settled for the 2nd third but then quickly went back to power for the final third. If you like a solid,powerful,full flavor cigar then give Southern Draw’s Jacob’s Ladder a shot.
The strongest cigar from Southern Draw and awesome full flavors. Highly recommend trying this one if you like full body and strength cigars.
