Jas Sum Kral Nuggs Maduro

Jas Sum Kral Nuggs Maduro. This is the amped-up version of the Jas Sum Kral Nuggs Habano, which we reviewed a few weeks ago. The Habano has 20mg of CBD, this Maduro version has five times as much, 100mg. And, as we explained in the review of the Jas Sum Kral Nuggs Habano, the whole process is patented by Jas Sum Kral. Everything was re-engineered from scratch. The company had to reinvent the needles to inject the CBD. They had to create new trays in which the cigars are shipped, so they won’t have to handled manually at the laboratory. And that is all patented as well, so any company that wants to create a CBD cigar this way has to go through Jas Sum Kral.


The blend is made with a Maduro wrapper from the Mexican San Andres region. The binder comes from Indonesia. The fillers are all Nicaraguan. The cigar comes in one size only so far, a 5×48 Robusto. But with a hefty manufacturer suggested retail price of 24 dollars. The CBD makes the cigar pretty expensive. And since the CBD is injected in the United States, it’s highly unlikely that the cigar will ever be sold in the E.U. as there is a tariff for American tobacco products. Cuban cigars are hit with the same tariff, yet Nicaragua, Honduras, Costa Rica, and the Dominican Republic are tariff-free. Due to anti-drug laws and the lack of proper laboratories, it’s impossible to inject the cigars with CBD in those countries.

The wrapper is amazing. Dark, smooth, shiny, oily with just one thing vein. The ring could be printed in a higher quality though, especially for an expensive cigar like this. The construction feels great. The cigar has a nice aroma of wood and straw.


The cold draw is great, mild woody with a slight bitterness on the tongue. After lighting it’s wood, spice, leather and dark chocolate. There’s a slight saltiness as well. There’s a hint of powdered sugar. The cigar has a slight bitterness that could be caused by the CBD. The pepper disappears, there’s a slight spice spiciness, with wood, leaves, and sweetness. After a third, it’s that slight bitterness with some pepper, spices, and wood. Halfway the cigar is still a little bitter, a little harsh wood and spices. Once the ring is reached, the point where according to Jas Sum Kral, the CBD is injected, a stronger bitterness appears. There’s also a bit of coffee and gingerbread spices.


The salt and pepper colored ash is firm. The draw is great. The smoke is a little thin and gray. The burn is pretty straight. The cigar is medium-bodied, medium flavored. The smoke time is two hours

Would I buy this cigar again? Not for this price

Jas Sum Kral Nuggs Habano

Jas Sum Kral Nuggs Habano. In the last few years, more and more scientific research is showing the positive effects of Cannabidiol. That is one of the two main components of marijuanaIt is the second most prevalent of the active ingredients of cannabis, but not the one that gets you high. That’s the THC. But it is the part of the marijuana plant that has the medicinal benefits, and scientific studies are proving that. Since it’s getting legal in more and more states in the United States, and countries worldwide, it was a matter of time before cigar manufacturers started to experiment. But spraying cigars with CBD oil is ineffective and resulted in unsmokeble cigars. That’s when Jas Sum Kral owner Riste Riatevski hired a laboratory and a chemist to completely re-engineer the process. With success, as they managed to break it down and infuse cigars without altering the flavor, yet remain the positive effects of CBD. And it’s patented, so Jas Sum Kral is the only company that can make cigars this way.

Jas Sum Kral released the Jas Sum Kral Nuggs. That is a cigar with its unique CBD infusion technique. So unique that even the needles that distribute the CBD in the cigar had to be designed by the company and those are patented too. According to Jas Sum Kral, the CBD can’t be detected by any modern equipment nor by sniffing dogs. And every single batch is tested by a third-party laboratory. The blend is not disclosed officially, but is the same as for the Nuggs Maduro, except for the wrapper. That means an Indonesian binder and Nicaraguan fillers. It’s only available in a 5×48 Robusto for now.

The first noticeable thing is the cellophane. It’s cut and that is done so all the cigars can be injected with the CDB. Jas Sum Kral created special trays, all cigars arrive at the laboratory in a vertical position so they can be injected with the CDB solution without human handling. That saves time and cost. The aqua green ring has the golden Jas Sum Kral logo but the print quality could be better. It’s such a detailed ring, it deserves a better quality finish. The Ecuadorian Habano wrapper has a few veins. The closed foot, something Jas Sum Kral is known for, is absent. But that is a result of the CDB injection, closed feet weren’t possible. The cigar feels good, well filled. The aroma is strong, hay and barnyard.

 

Because I was traveling light, I could not bring a cutter. I used my fingernail to cut the cigar. The cold draw is perfect with a mild sweet hay taste. The cigar has a dry taste, leather, soil, and almonds. The cigar gets a little sweet with grass and hay as well. After a centimeter, there is a slight bitterness, medicinal like. The marzipan like sweetness gets a little stronger. There’s soil, leather, wood, and sweetness. After a third, pepper shows up too. The bitterness gets stronger, to a level that it’s slightly unpleasant. The bitterness comes and goes. There’s also some gingerbread flavor. In the final third, the bitterness is gone

 

The draw is fantastic. The ash is white, dense and firm. The smoke is good, nice and thick. The cigar is medium in body and flavor. The smoke time is an hour and forty-five minutes.

Would I buy this cigar again? If it was better priced.
