The draw was perfect with just the right amount of resistance that I prefer.
The cigar began with must wood and a sour note that quickly became identified as sourdough bread. Later some black pepper joined. The wood gained some char and in the second third, that char kept building as the pepper and sourdough left. In the final third, the sourdough returned as the char receded. Strength built up to medium and the construction was very good. Rarely do I get a sourdough note in cigars, but the unique component was a nice addition here. Overall, the profile of the Shore Thing Exclusive by Crowned Heads was average, even with its uniqueness. The price point is quite high, but for a store exclusive, I can understand some reasoning to it, I just don’t feel the experience earns it. This isn’t a cigar I’d likely come across again due to it’s availability. If you’re a Crowned Heads fan and have a chance to grab one, you should go for it, but it won’t drive me to seek more out.
