Team Cigar Review: Crowned Heads Juarez Robusto

Give me a good tasting profile for two thirds of the cigar and a flawless draw and burn, all wrapped up in a ~$6 USD price point and I say you've got yourself a winner. I've had some excellent Mexican San Andrés wrapped cigars from Crowned Heads in 2018 (Court Reserve XVIII, Buckeye Land) and the Crowned Heads Juarez Robusto is really no exception.

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.

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. But Crowned Heads did a great job of tapering the earth with some tasty notes of cherry cordials and creamy bread. That and the evolving spice led to an experience that was enjoyable from first draw to the last.

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.

It is with this inspiration that Crowned Heads announces, "Headley Grange Black Lab LE 2018.'' Black Lab utilizes the original Headley Grange blend, and is finished with a dark Connecticut (Habano) maduro wrapper. The cigar is box-pressed, and for the first time on any Crowned Heads cigar, features a closed-foot, which highlights the initial flavor of the sumptuous Connecticut Habano flavor upon the initial ignition.
