I purchased the Ezra Zion Jamais Vu some time ago and have been meaning to smoke it and review it for a couple months. It has sat in the humidor on my desk staring back at me every time that I open it. Well, today is the day that it got smoked.

Smoking Conditions: Outdoors, approximately 62 degrees with a moderate to high wind.

Looks: The Ezra Zion Jamais Vu sports the classic black and silver Ezra Zion band as well as a foot band that shares the same color scheme but reads, “Jamais Vu” and “Primera Edicíon.” The cigar itself has a medium colored brown Nicaraguan Corojo wrapper leaf with medium veins. The wrapper leaf is slightly oily and has a bit of toothiness to it.

Pre-Light: The pre-light draw is that of hay.

Taste: Upon first lighting this cigar I was greeted with flavor notes of caramel and a strong nuttiness. About a quarter of the way in these flavors have been joined by a warm earthy flavor and a mild but definite cedar note. At the midway point, these notes have all joined in a culmination of flavor that is absolutely delicious. The aforementioned flavors remain present throughout the remainder of this stick and gain a slight bit of pepper in the final half.

Strength: Medium to full. The Jamais Vu has some ligero in the filler that gives it some nice strength.

Burn: The burn has been a bit temperamental, I will justify that though with the fact that I am smoking outside and it is quite windy out today. Smoke was plentiful.

Buy it? Sure. Overall this is a very balanced, consistent, and flavorful stick. It is the perfect compliment after a good meal and pairs excellently with a cup of coffee or fine spirit.
