"I loved all the warm spices, coco with a slight spiciness in the back of the throat that made me think this would be a great cigar to pair with English Breakfast tea on a cool crisp night. " -Allison T. (The Yoga Ash)
"Very good cigar. Started out with an incense/aromatic element that I couldn't quite put my finger on other than incense, but it didn't stay through the whole cigar. It kinda faltered out about the middle of the 2nd and walnuts and sweet tobacco took over. By the end it was just wood and that same sweet tobacco. Strength never got up to a medium. Very nice smoking experience. " -Mickey T. (irratebass)
At the 2018 IPCPR trade show in Las Vegas, Crowned Heads will show off the new Court Reserve XVIII. Fans of Crowned Heads cigars will certainly celebrate when the cigars ship to retailers later this fall. It will be a limited edition cigar from the Nashville based company, and available in three sizes. The Court Reserve XVIII is wrapped in Mexican San Andrés, with a binder from Ecuador and Nicaraguan filler leaves.
For the cigars nerds of the world, the Lancero vitola holds a special place of reverence. If you also happen to be a fan of Crowned Heads Cigars, you will rejoice at the arrival of the new Four Kicks Maduro Lancero LE. The lancero format gives the smoker less filler and more flavor from the wrapper. The smaller ring gauge tends to excite seasoned cigar smokers since it was conceived at the El Laguito factory in Havana back in the 1960s.
Crowned Heads have partnered with Shore Thing Cigars in Watersound Beach, FL for a new store exclusive cigar. The aptly named Shore Thing cigar is a 5 1/4 x 48 cigar made at Tabacalera La Alianza S.A. Paul Copeland and Luke Bryan (yes, the International Country Music superstar) opened Shore Thing Cigars in July of 2016. When they decided to have a namesake cigar made for their shop, they immediately thought of Nashville based Crowned Heads.

"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)
"I immensely enjoyed this cigar. The quality of flavors, smoke, and construction make this one of the highlights of the year for me. I usually would have to smoke another to make sure it wasn't a fluke, but on this single experience I would highly recommend this cigar to anyone. " -Alan (Eulogy)
Ring gauge (RG) can be a polarizing topic of conversation in many cigar shops. People who enjoy premium cigars have very specific opinions about the size of their cigar. Whatever you may think about the overly-large RG cigars, they are extremely popular and they drive sales. Give the public what they want, is probably a good business model. In keeping with this, Crowned Heads is releasing the Luminosa Gigantes LE 2018.

"This was real joy to smoke. I wouldn't have minded a bit more flavor variety but that's just shooting for the moon... The flavors that were present were delightful and kept me puffing! This one is purchase worthy for sure." -Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)

"This was a not a flavor profile that fit my wheelhouse. Having said that, for someone who likes hazelnut and some black licorice this will be a decent cigar for them. I didn’t like the bitterness of the cigar but it did progress into a tartness that wasn’t distasteful to me. I would have thought the cigar would be stronger than it was given the types of flavors but it remained a medium to full, on the more medium side for me. A decent smoke for a specific palette." -Diana (ArmyRN)
