The Cordoba & Morales Front 9, Churchill

Jimmy’s Cigars prides itself on being about the experience, and this writer can offer from firsthand experience that it is indeed that.  From the moment you step into Jimmy’s you are met with warm and inviting colors and seating.  The staff is friendly and the Cuban Coffee is superb. You will feel like family.  Just like the Cordoba & Morales family.

“ Córdoba & Morales dates back to 1906 in Pinar del Rio, Cuba, in the region of Vuelta Abajo where Celestina Córdoba Morales my grandmother and childhood best friend was born. At a very young age she learned from her ancestors the family secrets in the tobacco fields, everything from sowing the seeds to making an unparalleled and superior cigar. My grandmother passed away in 1989 at 83 years of age but she didn’t leave us… before inspiring and teaching us hands-on how to follow the family tradition. More importantly she cultivated in all of us a love for cigars.”  From the Cordoba &Morales website.

Recently I was approached by Jimmy Files, of Jimmy’s Cigars about writing a cigar blog. I feel honored by this request and I by no means believe that I am the end all be all expert of cigars. What I can offer is my knowledge and experience of 20 years.

May I begin, by saying that everyone has a little different taste pallet; the pallet is affected by the cigar(s) smoked on a regular basis.  What this writer tastes and experiences in a cigar may be totally different from what you the reader may taste and experience.  I encourage everyone to keep a diary of the cigars they smoke. Be sure to include comments such as length, wrapper, smell, and taste; if you are drinking, include comments that will help you remember how the flavor of the drink allowed the flavor of the cigar to sit on your pallet.  Keep in mind these tastes can be greatly impacted based on what you are drinking at the time. In other words, you can smoke a cigar with a glass of wine, and have the taste and experience be very different with a pint of ale.

CigarJimmy’s is the first Cordoba and Morales Cigar Bar, which made the first choice for this blog fairly simple.  The Cordoba & Morales Front 9, Churchill. Cordoba & Morales cigars are made in Estelí, with Nicaraguan binder and filler tobacco; the Front 9 uses an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper.  The cigar had a very good construction and feel to it.  The Front 9 was soft to the touch like most Connecticut’s and had the smell to go with it.

The Front 9 has light tan smooth oily wrapper with minimal veins, tight invisible seams, triple cap firm even light pack and rich wood aroma.   (I must interject; I am not normally a fan of Connecticut cigars).  I was surprised with the amount of strength I was hit with in the first inch of this smoke.  Even more so, I was surprised with how much I was enjoying the flavors of it; there wasn’t the creamy flavor, there were some nutty flavors and lots of pepper, but it was the tobacco and earth that was present in the taste that made a nice complexity.  The burn was sharp with no problems and the ash was

light gray and held for over two inches before falling.  There was lots of smoke, smoke with a fantastic aroma booming from this cigar for the entirety of the smoke.

First light reveals a great draw giving medium bodied flavors of an oily slick earthy tobacco with a long deep finish and good smoke output. The first third shows very mild flavors of a slightly sweet nut on the draw shifting to a generic wood note through the short finish. In finishing the 2nd third, flavors remain unchanged although smoke production and body are up slightly. Burn and draw are perfect

While smoking this cigar this writer paired the smoke with a Warre’s Fine White Port-1670 which added some light fruit flavors to the smoke.  This writer also sipped on a cup of freshly ground Cuban coffee at Jimmy’s which increased the nutty flavor in the smoke. As stated earlier I am not normally a fan of Connecticut wrappers however; there was something about this cigar that was just really good.  If you like medium bodied nutty flavors I would recommend you give this cigar a try.

It's not a Cigar… Its an Event.
