Don Abram Harris El Jefe Cigar Review

This 5×48 box pressed stick offers a butter soft mottled dark brown oily wrapper with small veins you can see but not feel, invisible seams, a double cap and firm even feel. The aroma is a rich chocolate that you can smell several inches away. First light reveals a very firm draw but decent smoke output with very peppery tobacco medium-full body flavors and an oily zingy long finish. The first third mellows to a medium body of just oily aged tobacco. By the start of the 2nd third flavors had changed slightly to include a creamy earth note, but it’s light and blends well with the tobacco core. 55 min in the 2nd third ends adding a bit of a creamy mocha flavor and brings the body to a medium-full again. Ending at 1:10 min where it started getting hot and the flavors washed out, the remainder showed no further changes. Thank you very much to Don Abram Harris Cigars for sending this for review!

    Bryan, nice review. This brand is relative new, and I look forward to seeing if it catches on. I have yet to try one, but after learning a bit about the company and its founder, my curiosity has been piqued. I read that this is the first U.S. based African American cigar manufacturer, and is a tobacco vendor for the U.S. Navel Exchange. I have had great success with historically underutilized businesses personally. If I am correct, the tobacco is from Puerto Rico. Interesting. BTW, have you been to Rocky Patel’s Burn cigar lounge in Naples? Florida seems like such a great place to live for those with cigar obsessions LOL.

  • Yep FL is where it’s at, no doubt about it! No I have not stopped down there yet, it’s about 3 hours south.
