Cigar News: Crowned Heads Announces Thompson Cigar Co. Exclusive ‘Juarez’

‘Juarez’ is a followup to the 2014 cigar ‘Jericho Hill’. That cigar was inspired by the Johnny Cash song ‘Cocaine Blues’. This Thompson Cigar exclusive has a Mexican San Andres wrapper like the Jericho hill, but that is where the similarity ends. It uses an Ecuadorian Sumatra binder and filler from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. It will come in 20 count boxes in three vitolas: 4 3/4 x 52, 6 x 54, and 5 x 56 all parejo shape. The price ranges from $5.95-$7.95.

Blind Cigar Review: Ohana | Friends & Family Corona Gorda

“This was a wonderful experience. The flavors were nice and constant and never strayed in to bitterness and yuck. The cedar flavor was there from begging to end. The best part was the slightly sweet taste left on the palate. The aroma was that of a cedar log burning in the fireplace that made this one even more enjoyable. Definitely one for the humidor. ” -Eric (smalls29)

Blind Cigar Review: Rocky Patel | A.L.R. (Aged Limited & Rare) Robusto

“This wasn’t the most progressive smoke in the world for me but it was very pleasant. I enjoyed the flavor notes and especially the last third where the smok tobacco came more into play. This cigar was very relaxing to me as it was smooth, minimal if at all pepper notes, cocoa, some floral and other earthy flavors were consistent and tasty.” -Diana (ArmyRN)

There was a lot of creamy coco, brown sugar, leather, hay, and woodiness notes that all worked together in a really nice way. I would suggest trying one for yourself. ” -Jeff (ExpendableYouth)

Blind Cigar Review: CAO | Nicaragua Granada

“This is a cigar I would smoke any day. If you are looking for a nicely flavored cigar without any pepper this would be a great smoke. The earthiness along with the smooth and creamy profile was very pleasant. There was a great blend of coffee, cocoa, hint of leather, baking spices and leafy floral. I really enjoyed this and recommend this cigar for any level of cigar smoker. ” -Diana (ArmyRN)
