Post Dinner Rose of Sharon and Coffee

No, I'm not doing "dry January." I happen to enjoy coffee as much as bourbon. Fortunately, drinking it in the early evening doesn't affect my sleep. Though I might not fall asleep in front of the television as quickly!

A Southern Draw Rose of Sharon Desert Rose Lonsdale LE makes a great accompaniment to a steaming cup of coffee as an after-dinner treat. It's an enjoyable pairing I've done in the past.

The Southern Draw Rose of Sharon Desert Rose Londsdale is a limited edition of the Southern Draw Desert Rose. The 6 x 44 lonsdale features an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, a Nicaraguan habano leaf binder, and filler consisting of Honduran Corojo 99 and Dominican Piloto Cubano tobaccos. The cigar is bolder than the wrapper would indicate. I am typically not a fan of Connecticut wrappers, but this is a repeat cigar for me. The cigar kicks off with a peppery spice, before the addition of creamy bread, leather, and cedar. The cigar has been resting in my humidor for a little over four months and the burn and draw was excellent. 

The thermal mug kept the coffee hot for the entire 50 minute smoke. That was just enough time to have the sun fully set and the temperature begin its rapid drop. It was time to head inside and NOT fall asleep in front of the TV.
