Blind Cigar Review: E.P. Carrillo | Pledge Sojourn

“Give me another one of these! This was a solid stick with flavors that I rather enjoy. The middle third was probably the weak spot on this cigar where flavors kind of drowned in themselves and the marshmallow puff. I’m not going to say that portion of the cigar was bad, but it was not the highlight. Fortunately, there’s plenty of other things going on in this cigar to make the downsides forgettable. ” -Isaac M. (The Nothing)

“An extremely earthy and smoky cigar. If you are a fan a sticks with strong mineral and hickory style flavors this should be added to your list to try. While it’s not exactly my preferred profile I definitely appreciated the layers of mineral, smoke, and hints of spice.” -Lauren S. (Lauren S.)

Blind Cigar Review: E.P. Carrillo | Selección Oscuro Especial No. 6

“If you are in to earthy, spicy cigars, that perform well and don’t disappoint, then this is a cigar for you. It developed from medium to the high end of medium full throughout that smoking experience on an almost linear level. No abrupt changes in strength or body, and no re-lights or touchups needed. While it did end up a little bitter and spicy at the end, novice smokers should feel no fear with this cigar, as long as it is paired with something to offset the strength at the end, like a nice aged rum. Stout beer would overrun it, as would cask strength scotch or barrel proof bourbon. All in all a great experience that I look forward to trying again!” -Kevin A. (Kevin A.)

“At first, I really didn’t know if I was going to enjoy this one. The flavors were very good but the finish in the first third was throwing me off. Once the finish settled though, I really enjoyed this one. I’d definitely smoke this one again. The perfect pairing for me would be nice smooth bourbon or dark beer.” -James H. (Keikan Jim)

“A cigar I hated to lose in the process of smoking. Great notes of cherry, earth, leather, cocoa, and oak make this a excellent cigar. Great ash that hung on to the cigar for 30 minutes or better. Five or more of these cigar would round out your humidor perfectly.” -Sean F. (fullermaine)

Cigar News: Crowned Heads Announces Headley Grange Chamuco LE 2019

The original Headley Grange was inspired by the drum beat on the lead-in to the Led Zeppelin classic “When the Levee Breaks.” The name came from where the track was recorded, a former poorhouse (built in 1795) in East Hampshire, England, named Headley Grange. Last year, Crowned Heads released a limited edition version called “Black Lab LE 2018,” named after the black Labrador Retriever that was hanging around the Headley Grange studio during the recording of Led Zeppelin IV. That blend uses the same fillers as the original Headley Grange, but replaces the wrapper with Connecticut (Habano) maduro. For 2019, Crowned Heads is releasing “Headley Grange Chamuco LE 2019.”
