Team Cigar Review: Crowned Heads Buckeye Land

The Crowned Heads Buckeye Land is more straight forward in flavors (chocolate, black pepper, soil/dirt) but the number of flavors is not indicative of a bad cigar. Quite the contrary, it is a straight forward approach to a great tasting cigar. Between this cigar and the Court Reserve XVIII Robusto, it's safe to say Crowned Heads got Mexican San Andres on lock down this year.

Team Cigar Review: Crowned Heads Court Reserve XVIII Robusto

The Crowned Heads Court Reserve XVIII Robusto is a proper Mexican San Andres. This wrapper has a tendency to be too earth dominant for me.

Cigar News: Crowned Heads Creates Juarez as Thompson Exclusive

Crowned Heads announces "Juarez," a cigar inspired by 'Jericho Hill' and made exclusively for Thompson Cigar Co. Like 'Jericho,' 'Juarez' features a dark Mexican (San Andres} wrapper, but the blend departs from there, as the binder is Ecuadorian (Sumatra) and the filler tobaccos are a mix of tobaccos from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic.

A delicious medium bodied cigar that leaves a very creamy toasted caramel flavor on your palate. The cigar becomes milder with every inch and burns perfectly under its EPC construction. The Sumatra wrapper has a very natural and oily sheen much like the leather on a baseball glove and has a triple cap. Cuban size, Dominican Quality, and the incredible flavor of Nicaraguan tobaccos.
