Deadwood Sweet Jane Cigar in Short
Sweet Jane is part of a smooth cigar trifecta, the Yummy B*ches. In terms of intensity, she comes in second. The initial draw is mostly sweet but within the first couple minutes you’ll get a taste of the richer mocha coffee and cedar notes.
What strikes you the most is the exceptional burn. Both its flavor and burn are as steady as they come. That is what makes Sweet Jane so consistently enjoyable.
As they say about all her sisters, the Deadwood Tobacco Company cigars are more flavored than the traditional cigars. But we just can’t hold it against her.
For about 30 minutes, Sweet Jane will show you what inner peace is like. She won’t keep you too long but part of her appeal is that she isn’t demanding. Keep her in stock because she’ll become your daily habit.
First Look and Feel
Sweet Jane is available as a single, pack of 5 or a box of 24. Give yourself a beautiful piece of decoration for your office and get the 24-piece box. Trust us, you’ll go through them faster than you think.
The reddish brown wood and the golden carving of a Dia de los Muertos-inspired Sweet Jane is eye-catching. You can sense that the Deadwood Tobacco Company has an understanding of the tradition and respectfully choose to play with it.
Individually wrapped in cellophane, each cigar seems snug in its place. Unwrap and you start to wonder whether you got an older batch. Don’t worry, Sweet Janes are much drier than the Fat Bottom Betty.
That is also one (of the few) downsides of this cigar. We recommend that you place the cigars in a humidor and treat them gently because the dryness cracks easily.
The dryness may worry you but none of that limits the flavor of Sweet Jane. Go ahead and light her up.

Deadwood Sweet Jane Cigar Flavors
One of the defining characteristics of Sweet Jane is her consistency. There are no wildly unexpected flavors and none of the notes are overpowering.
Your initial cold draw gives you sweet cinnamon chocolate. It is a rich flavor but not one that shocks your system.
That first note continues throughout the cigar. Once it’s warm, Sweet Jane becomes a little more earthy and woodsy, adding just a little tingle to your tongue.
As soon as it is burning well, you’ll have the same flavor profile until the very end. Some might say this makes Sweet Jane less exciting. Others love her for it.
How It Smokes
Sweet Jane cigars are one of the most consistent cigars you will ever smoke. The drier wrapper gets her going quickly which means you get to the good part faster.
The sweetness kicks in right from the start and stays on your tongue until the very end. Within two minutes, you will have opened up the entire bouquet of flavors.
Watch how the ring moves further and further down the corona. It is so even and steady that it almost becomes hypnotizing.
The consistency in flavor profile and burn is just right for a more casual cigar that doesn’t bore you after a few minutes. You can enjoy Sweet Jane pretty much daily. Even if you just started smoking cigars, Sweet Jane will make you a regular.
About the Brand
Sweet Jane is one of three now famous cigars by the Deadwood Tobacco Company. Started by four friends from South Dakota, they are pushing the boundaries of what makes a good cigar.
The Deadwood Tobacco Company produces its cigars in Esteli, Nicaragua with the Drew Estate, another unusual suspect. Put these two underdogs together and you get a very surprising cigar.
The purists may not be the biggest fan but we are. The whole point of a cigar is to take the time to enjoy yourself and the Deadwood Tobacco Company makes very enjoyable cigars.
Frequently Asked Questions

- Sweet Jane is a good introductory cigar; sweet enough to welcome newcomers but also flavored enough to keep the more experienced entertained.
