Highclere Castle Senetjer

Highclere Castle Senetjer 1600 900 Michel Arlia

Highclere Castle Senetjer was created, crafted by Foundation Cigars, to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the discovery of the tomb of King Tutankhamun by the 5th Earl of Carnarvon of Highclere Castle and famed archaeologist Howard Carter.

Senetjer is the ancient Egyptian word for “incense,” translating directly as “of the gods.” For more information, click here.

Highclere Castle Senetjer

Highclere Castle Senetjer: the cold draw reveals aromas of spices and ripe fruit. Once lit, it opens with black pepper, leather, and wood notes.

Highclere Castle Senetjer

Usually, it takes these kinds of vitolas a little bit to get going, but the Senetjer is very flavorful from the get-go. The black pepper, leather, and wood mix is joined by honey and hazelnut. Strength is a solid medium (3/5).

In the second third, the already ample profile is joined by coffee, with herbs (mainly a mint freshness) and mineral scents in the background. The strength remains unchanged.

In the last third, the flavor profile becomes fuller and spicier, mainly dominated by chili. Strength grows to a medium-full level (4/5).

Overall, the Highclere Castle Senetjer is a complex and flavorful smoke with a broad and balanced profile. But don’t be fooled. The strength creeps up on you, especially in the last third: a memorable smoke, fitting what it pays tribute to.
