Sons of Anarchy by Black Crown – Cigar Review

This week’s group cigar review is of the Sons of Anarchy by Black Crown.  These are on sale at some places, could be a good chance to get a Black Crown cigar on the cheap.  This cigar has a very dark and oily wrapper leaf.  The draw ranged from tight to loose on our sample sticks.  Once lit up, it had a nice rich and savory flavor with a lot of sweetness to complement it.  The sweetness comes and goes while the cigar continues to get richer and more flavorful.  It was so delicious, truly enjoyable.  Overall, this is a tremendous value and one of our favorite sticks we’ve had in a while.  Get them while they’re still available!

StraightUpCigars – Matt: This Sons of Anarchy cigar has a fruity smell to it and a real oily wrapper. Draw is a hair on the loose side, but not bad.
7:33 PM
IamDarren: Very nice wrapper, dark with some sun spots. Dense pack which leaves a somewhat tight draw.
7:33 PM
IamDarren: Getting a lot of sweet spice on the cold draw.
7:34 PM
IamDarren: also some sort of woody note
7:35 PM
Terry1: Same here nice dark wrapper. Perfect draw with a spicy and chocolatey draw. Ready to light up.
7:36 PM
IamDarren: here comes the flame
7:37 PM
StraightUpCigars – Matt: Lighting up.
7:37 PM
IamDarren: wow, very rich and very sweet at the same time. Nice balance right from the start
7:37 PM
IamDarren: already dishing out some pepper on the finish
7:39 PM
IamDarren: also getting that woody note with a bit of char
7:40 PM
Terry1: Lot’s of nice buttery sweetness here and some pepper on the finish. First few puffs are starting out great. Draw is good with plenty of smoke.
7:41 PM
StraightUpCigars – Matt: Yeah, this does have a nice mix of savory and sweet. Definitely a lot of pepper in that finish.
7:44 PM
Terry1: Sweetness is becoming more of a caramel flavor. Lot’s of pepper in the retrohale. Gives a sinus sting. Aroma is really sweet. Liking it so far.
7:44 PM
IamDarren: Really loving the complexity of every puff. As the smoke enters the mouth i get a ton of caramel sweetness which then is replaced by chocolate and charred wood combination. lastly i get a bit of spice and a decent amount of pepper on the finish.
7:45 PM
StraightUpCigars – Matt: I’m liking it too. You were right with that smoke production, it’s so easy to puff on.
7:47 PM
IamDarren: if it wasn’t so rich and peppery this would be a true candy bar stick.
7:49 PM
Terry1: Agree lots of sweetness. I can detect chocolate, vanilla and caramel. Pepper gives a nice counter balance to the sweetness. Great so far.
7:50 PM
StraightUpCigars – Matt: This one burns pretty hot… but it’s so hard to set it down and rest it
7:51 PM
IamDarren: just looked these up on CI… well shortly after i signed up for the SOA giveaway (coincidence?). Can’t believe these are going for 4 to 5 bucks.
7:52 PM
StraightUpCigars – Matt: Are they clearing them out since the show is over (I think it’s over, right?)?
7:53 PM
Terry1: I paid about $2.50 on Cigarbid. Great value. I’m not getting the heat yet but I know what you mean about not letting it cool down.
7:53 PM
StraightUpCigars – Matt: I do think it’s my fault… but it tastes so good!
7:53 PM
Terry1: I picked up the ashtray and the cutter for cheap! I think they are clearing them out. Maybe a good time to score a deal on a good cigar.
7:55 PM
IamDarren: looks like they have a bunch on cbid. If this thing ends as well as it has started im going to be getting more. Great pick Terry
7:56 PM
IamDarren: decided to tap off the ash at 1 inch. Burn and ash look great.
7:57 PM
StraightUpCigars – Matt: My sweetness is fading and is being replaced with a buttery coffee flavor. Liking it.
7:57 PM
IamDarren: i can see that. I think my charred wood is being replaced by a coffee note also.
7:58 PM
IamDarren: I wonder whats different about the Clubhouse edition?
8:01 PM
IamDarren: looks like they used a habano wrapper and aged them in rum barrels. They also mention that the SOA cigars are made by Black Crown. I guess that would make sense since this one has a foot band that says Black Crown.
8:04 PM
StraightUpCigars – Matt: Looks like lots of Nicaraguan tobacco in that Clubhouse edition. They says it’s knee-knocking.
8:04 PM
IamDarren: lol, gotta love the adjectives
8:04 PM
Terry1: I didn’t know about the rum barrel aging. Interesting. Might be where the sweetness is coming from.
8:05 PM
IamDarren: i don’t know if this one is aged in rum barrels or just the clubhouse edition
8:06 PM
Terry1: Oh okay. Pepper seems to have faded on mine. Lot’s of sweetness still almost like a turtle candy now.
8:08 PM
IamDarren: the draw is really starting to free up on mine. Gobs and gobs of smoke production
8:09 PM
Terry1: Burn has been holding steady. Ash falling off in one inch chunks. No issues with the construction yet.
8:10 PM
IamDarren: body on mine has backed down to medium, just a hint of coffee with mostly a caramel sweetness and a hint of nuts. Its more buttery and there is a hint of acidity on the finish.
8:10 PM
StraightUpCigars – Matt: Band slid right off without issue.
8:15 PM
Terry1: My band came off easily too. Loving the sweetness this cigar is pumping out.
8:16 PM
StraightUpCigars – Matt: I can’t get over the amount of smoke it puts out. Draw is a little loose on mine, but when it produces smoke as nicely as this I am not complaining.
8:18 PM
IamDarren: gave mine the 2 min. rest test and it immediately started burning and pumping out smoke on the first puff. I love a cigar that i don’t have to babysit. This one has all the qualities that i love about AJs sticks.
8:22 PM
StraightUpCigars – Matt: Mine is increasing in acidity and body in the final third. Also stating to feel the effects.
8:23 PM
IamDarren: agreed, im starting to melt into my chair a little. Lovin it
8:23 PM
Terry1: I’m getting a little bit of effect, but overall still nice chocolately smoothness.
8:24 PM
Terry1: A little rum is adding to the sweetness, finding it quite nice.
8:25 PM
StraightUpCigars – Matt: I think that would pair nicely. I
8:25 PM
StraightUpCigars – Matt: I’m actually drinking water tonight. Weird, right?
8:26 PM
Terry1: A little rum, Sons of Anarchy, and some nice lounge music makes a mellow evening.
8:28 PM
StraightUpCigars – Matt: That does sound nice. I swear my next house is going to have a cigar room/office. Looking forward to it.
8:30 PM
Terry1: This cigar seems to smooth and mellow as it goes, steady flavors continue.
8:30 PM
IamDarren: i finally got the office i wanted but the smoking room may not happen. However, it is fairly easy to head out to the shed in the winter so i can’t complain too much.
8:32 PM
IamDarren: hey Matt, you might consider just getting one of those little storage sheds to put out in the yard and just throw up a little insulation and maybe a window ac unit for the summer
8:33 PM
StraightUpCigars – Matt: I’ve got a shed, but it’s full of lawn stuff. Maybe another one? Or a second level…
8:34 PM
Terry1: That’s what I’ve done and it works great. Although I’m still sharing the space with the lawn mower. Oh well. Still works for me.
8:34 PM
IamDarren: true, a lot of those larger detached garages have plenty of room for a loft
8:35 PM
IamDarren: about an inch to go on my stick. Smoke production has fallen off but flavor is still good.
8:36 PM
Terry1: I agree, I think the flavor is going to be nice through where the band used to be.
8:39 PM
StraightUpCigars – Matt: Really liking this ending. Rich coffee and woody flavor. Pepper has faded into a light spice. Great smoke.
8:40 PM
IamDarren: yep, great cigar all the way
8:41 PM
Terry1: Thanks, I really enjoyed this smoke as well.
8:43 PM
StraightUpCigars – Matt: Mine’s about finished. I probably smoked it a little too fast
8:43 PM
IamDarren: gonna be easy to rate this one
8:45 PM
IamDarren: top 10 for sure… maybe top 5
8:46 PM
StraightUpCigars – Matt: Yeah, this was a diamond in the rough. Fair price and excellent flavor.
8:46 PM
Terry1: Great cigar. One of our best. Glad you liked it. Definitely recommended. Hopefully they will be available for a while.
