Crowned Heads is bringing a new line to PCA 2021 "CHC (Crowned Heads Court) Serie E." The original CHC Reserve line was released in 2018. The CHC Series E, like many other Crowned Heads releases, got its inspiration from a song. In this case, the instrumental rock guitar solo, "Eruption," performed by Eddie Van Halen, from the album, "Van Halen" released on February 10, 1978. The song precedes "You Really Got Me" on the album and is often played together on the radio.

"After initial inspection I wasn’t sure what to expect, however, this cigar smoked fantastically and produced delicious flavors. From pre-light draw to last puff, the cigar performed above expectations and had great smoke output. Not exactly my cup of tea as it was a little sweeter than I prefer, but I would gladly smoke another. Fantastic smoke if you have under an hour. Nub was the best part. Puff slowly and enjoy the end my friends." -Adam B. (Bushboi)
"Overall this is a pretty good cigar. Construction was fantastic to the point where I considered if it was machine rolled. Absolutely flawless. Very light weight. For a Toro cigar rolled with this precision I would expect more oily and heavier tobacco’s. Not a bad thing, but lead to easier smoke output and a quicker burn. Flavors kept me guessing the whole time and we’re always interesting. Quite different from the beginning of the cigar to the end in a pleasant way. Will definitely smoke this one again." -Adam B. (Bushboi)
"What an excellent cigar! Three district flavor profiles and a nicely increasing strength have me wanting to buy these right now. This is as close to a perfect cigar as I’ve had in years...a real winner!" -Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)

"This would not be my typical choice for smoking. Even though I may smoke a couple of cigars in succession, and therefore spend several hours herfing, I tend to like to switch up flavor experiences by smoking more than one type of cigar. For a cigar of this size, I found it to be more enjoyable than I would have originally expected. There were moments of monotony but not enough for me to want to be done. The mix of flavor notes, although not overly complex, provided enough variety that I enjoyed it more than not. Make sure to have time for this cigar and pair it with something that accentuates the flavor profile such as a nice hearty bourbon and even while eating a nice piece of red meat. Red wine would also be complimentary." -Diana (ArmyRN)
"If I had to give 2 thumbs as a rating, one would be up and the other down. The first two-thirds of this cigar was pretty damn tasty, the last third however was a salt city and was very difficult to enjoy. While the burn, construction, and draw were all grade A quality, the ending flavor for this stick was very off-putting for my tastes, unless you’re a salt coinsurer!" -John A. (Bostoneo)

"For a cigar that looked odd from the get-go and had a highly unpleasant cold draw, it performed very well and acted overall like an “ordinary” cigar. Hooray! I liked the portfolio of flavors presented by this cigar throughout the smoking experience and, coupled with the excellent construction, I’d certainly smoke it again. " -Matt Cade (CadeTNCC)
