Ted Jackson’s company has allied with many popular brands in the past to create interesting stogies, and Duck Commander Cigars are the next in line. The popular show ‘Duck Dynasty’ focuses on the Robertson family. The Robertsons produce hunting equipment and revel in their love of the outdoors. Since its start in 2012, the show has attracted a cult following. The Robertsons’ collaboration with Jackson was a natural fit for both sides, because Jackson has partnered with several popular brands in the past. This stick, like most of Jackson’s stogies, is packed in a glass tube that keeps out humidity.


 


The Duck Commander cigars come with an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, a Dominican Piloto Cubano binder and several fillers. These fillers include a United States Broadleaf, a Dominican Piloto Cubano, a Dominican Habano and a Dominican Criollo 98. It is only available in a single vitola, a Toro (6 x 50). The wrapper is medium brown in appearance and has a rustic look, appropriate for a stick based on a family of outdoorsmen. There is some medium veining and the paper is somewhat toothy. The stick is double banded. The primary band features the Robertsons’ company logo, a duck with wings spread. The secondary band spells out one of the show’s popular catchphrases (“cut ‘em”). Both bands are forest green, gold and beige in color.


 


On the pre-light draw, most reviewers detected a combination of cedar and grassy notes, though they considered it a little muted. The first third of the Duck Commander cigars brings these flavors out some more. Cedar, tobacco, earth and grassy notes are all apparent in this part of the stick, though the cedar flavor stands out as the strongest. In the background, the grassy and earth notes balance well with the cedar, while the tobacco taste adds some sweetness to the profile.


 


In the second third of the stick, the cedar flavor still remains the dominant taste. In this part of the cigar, some aficionados detected a flavor they described as fresh and light, though it didn’t have a clear profile. The grassy and earth layers are still present in the background, in addition to the sweet tobacco. About halfway through the stick, black pepper shows up on the finish, giving the smoke a little kick.


 


In the final third of the Duck Commander cigars, the black pepper begins to assert itself and joins the cedar in a primary role. The grassy flavor fades out, though the sweet tobacco and earth notes still remain. By the time the smoke reaches the nub, the black pepper is the strongest flavor. It delivers a punch of spice before finishing off.


 


This is a mild-bodied medium strength stick that is meant for a casual smoke. Duck Commander cigars produce a good draw and burn, though some reviewers had to touch up the burn line some. However, the stogie is well-built and performs well once lit. The ash is dark grey and holds on for about an inch and a half.


 


Like the Robertsons, this stick perfectly captures the rustic feel of the outdoors. It’s an ideal stick for fans of the show and aficionados who want a relaxing smoke.
