Cory - Dark cocoa wrapper. not as oily as i would have guessed. a bit bumpy and veiny, like the vascularity of a physique competitor.
Chris - Dark brown with reddish hue. Very firm. Mildly gritty texture with light sheen.
Cory - good draw with good smoke production. even burn line and reluctant to ash :)
Chris - Burns a little uneven in places. Couple touchups. Thick ash. 2-3 puffer.
Cory - $11.00 for this clocked Plasencia? Sign me up! I have always said, if you want a Plasencia but don't wanna pay the premium, buy something from one of their contract brands. This cigar is an example of that. To top it off, the flavors this cigar imparts is right in my wheel house. It's bold, it's in your face, and its just damn good. The richness of this cigar gives it an almost dessert like feel making it a good one to end the night with.
Chris - You can't deny that it is everything great about a Plasencia-made cigar, and everything great in price that isn't a Plasencia-made cigar... I said it! This Hiram & Solomon cigar has great flavor and a solid burn that – to me – makes it the best H&M cigar I have had in their lineup.

Hiram & Solomon
As far back as the mid-1800s, records exist describing the pre-meeting tradition of Brethren smoking cigars during and after gatherings. To this day, the practice of smoking cigars remains very much alive in many lodges. This custom is considered a time for Brethren to relax, exchange ideas, and enjoy the simplicity and fellowship that is the very essence of Brotherhood.
This is what Hiram & Solomon Cigars is all about. Our starting principles are to bring Mason brothers together in the harmony of a good cigar. Pull up a chair, sit back, light up any of our premium quality cigars, and enjoy the history.
