Cappuccino and Southern Draw Brimstone Lonsdale

Saturday afternoon provided the perfect time to enjoy a smoke on the deck. Enough chores were completed, and we'd returned from a fun, and filling, lunch out. I brewed up a couple cappuccinos and headed for the screened porch with mine. I opted for a Southern Draw Jacobs Ladder Brimstone in Lonsdale format to accompany the milky coffee.

Southern Draw Jacobs Ladder Brimstone is a full bodied cigar. It sports a USA Broadleaf wrapper and binder. The strength is enhanced by a triple ligero filler blend of Nicaraguan and Dominican tobaccos. This Lonsdale vitola is a 6 x 44 stick.

The smoke is a robust blend of dark chocolate, roasted coffee, dark fruit, along with a pepper spiciness. The burn needed just one touch up, due to my inattention. The boldly flavored smoke was smoothed by the creamy, slightly bitter coffee drink. The two flavor profiles complimented each other to perfection.

Most of my smoking time is accompanied by listening to music, most often blues selections. I'll turn some classic jazz frequently, especially during afternoon smokes while relaxing with coffee. This time, within a few minutes of lighting up, no less than three neighbors fired up their leaf blowers, which served to drown out any musical enjoyment. The cacophony of small engine noises provided a less than ideal background. However, I did give me a pleasurable satisfaction knowing that my own yard cleaning chores were completed and off my list.
