Team Cigar Review: Crowned Heads Sfumato in C Major

I don't remember the last time I had a balanced and nuanced Crowned Heads, and I freaking love it! To be honest, Crowned Heads has been a swing and a miss for quite some time (especially the limited edition releases). But the Crowned Heads Sfumato in C Major cures all past blends.

Team Cigar Review: Crowned Heads Le Carême Belicosos Finos 2022 LE

This Crowned Heads Le Carême Belicosos Finos 2022 LE was a fantastic belicoso. Great flavors of rich earth, strong spices, sweetness, mocha and espresso. Great evening cigar. Would highly recommend, smoke again and would love to age. Fantastic Connecticut Broadleaf.

Team Cigar Review: Crowned Heads Le Pâtissier

Team Cigar Review: Crowned Heads Le Pâtissier

The Crowned Heads Le Pâtissier delivered some interesting flavor combinations in the first third, leaning towards the espresso and earth spectrum. The second and last thirds were still pleasant but lacked the dynamic nature of the first third. Most of the time Crowned Heads is a hit for me, so I feel like I'd revisit the Le Pâtissier again in the future to see if some age helped that second third harmonize better.

Team Cigar Review: Crowned Heads CHC Serie E 5150

The Crowned Heads CHC Serie E 5150 delivered a spicy and flavorful medium-full bodied experience through the review. The most interesting combinations came through in the first and second thirds, with the last third pleasant, but lacking the same complexity. I would smoke this again, especially to see if the flavor improved assuming no burn issues.

Team Cigar Review: Crowned Heads Las Calaveras Edición Limitada 2021 LC48

The Crowned Heads Las Calaveras Edición Limitada 2021 LC48 delivered a profile of intense pepper, earth and tannic wood through the review experience. None of the flavors seemed to coalesce and so I didn't find myself interested and engaged. Given that these are a yearly limited, I am disappointed in the 2021 offering.

Team Cigar Review: Crowned Heads The Lost Angel TAA 2021

The Crowned Heads The Lost Angel TAA 2021 did a good job of balancing out Mexican San Andres and Brazilian Mata Fina, while having them be the focus of the blend and delivering their positive qualities. The cigar had a nice balance between sweet and spicy, and the earth presence was perfect as well. With that, you can’t go wrong with a matte black band. It just looks awesome.

Team Cigar Review: Crowned Heads Mil Días Escogidos Edición Limitada 2021

The Crowned Heads Mil Días Escogidos Edición Limitada 2021 tasted almost like a great finesse style of cigar. Based on the first third, it felt like a cigar made with attention to details in nuance and complexities. But for most of the smoking experience, the harsh bite in metallic notes basically killed it. I am curious to revisit this cigar in a few months to see if the harshness subsides, in which if it does, it'll be a hell of a cigar.
