"I love this vitola and how they are a perfect winter cigar. There weren't really any big flavor transitions but the flavors hit my palate in the sweet spot. Loved the black coffee, leather, earth and spice this cigar presented me. I would definitely recommend this to full bodied smokers who only have 30 to 45 minutes to enjoy a cigar. Very well done!!" -Kevin J. (maninblack77)
"I was intrigued before I even lit this one up. It’s a beautiful-looking cigar with a very strong and appealing aroma. I’m quite happy to report that the smoking experience lived up to my initial impression. I’d label this as a well-balanced dessert stick, sweet, but not heavy. I would be delighted to smoke this blend again. I’m looking forward to finding out what this was." -Chris M. (Chris)

"One of those delectable treats you get in the form of a cigar. Very straight-forward, but very rewarding as well. If you want stability, sweetness, and no kickback, this should be right up your alley." -Doug S. (Unpossible_1)
"This was a fairly complex and transitional medium-bodied cigar. The flavors were well-balanced, and definitely up my alley. The only downside was the amount of attention this needed all the way through. I’d absolutely pick up another one in hopes that the burn issues I had were just a fluke. It was still an enjoyable experience even with a couple of touch-ups and a relight." -Chris M. (Chris)
"The cigar checked all the boxes for me. Construction was great, never needed a touchup or relight. I really enjoyed the profile throughout with the hints of dark chocolate and oak. It rounded out really well with the black pepper." -Quinn (quinnpins269)
"The overall notes were smooth and sweet. With hints of a peppery bite on the tongue. The cigar transitioned beautifully from a sweet cedar to a warm bready, cabinet slice delight. Each third of the cigar revealed its beautiful constitution with great transitional changes over the course of the smoke. It was a superb example of what a transitional smoke experience should be." -Bradlee W. (Brad W.)
The "Crafted By JR: Crowned Heads" cigar, a collaboration with Crowned Heads and Jon Huber, offers a medium-bodied profile with Nicaraguan fillers and an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper. Priced at $11.50 per stick, the reviewers enjoyed it for its balanced flavors, good construction, and enjoyable smoking experience, despite some one-dimensionality.
"This was a good cigar. The sweetness and mellowness at the beginning made for a great start and the cigar developed nicely into a medium-full well well-flavored smoking experience. This is a cigar that I would be proud to have in my humidor." -Kevin A. (Kevin A.)
"I smoked this nice medium body in the morning and I think it hit the mark. I felt it was a very well balanced cigar that offered an nice profile. The baking spices and creamy smoke were very pleasant. Pair this with a coffee and you've got a complete breakfast." -Quinn (quinnpins269)
