Cigar News: Crowned Heads Releasing Juarez 'Chihuahua' is releasing a line extension to it’s brand, Chihuahua. No, it’s not a reference to the dog breed, but rather the state in northern Mexico that that dog breed happens to be named after. is actually one of the 67 municipalities of the state of Chihuahua, in northern Mexico.

The Chihuahua itself is a stout 5 1/2″ x 48 parejo. This vitola is a bit different, but similar to their limited edition ‘Shots XX,’ a 4″ x 50 petite robusto from last February. The Shots XX saw only 25,000 total cigars were produced, while the Chihuahua is regular production.

“I’ve loved the blend since day one, but I’ve felt that there was a void in the sub-52 ring gauge lane,” commented co-owner/founder, . “The range before Chihuahua was 52-56 (ring gauge), but now there will be a vitola for the smaller ring gauge smokers, such as myself. I’ve been a fan of the Super Corona vitola since the Cubans released it as an Edicion Limitada under the Bolivar marca in 2014, and it becomes a true flavor bomb in the blend.”

cigars are rolled at in Esteli, Nicaragua, under the supervision of Master Blender Don Eradio Pichardo. Chihuahua will sell for $6.45 per cigar and ships July.
