"I know this particular vitola is suppose to be more of a cigar snob size but I love them when they're done well. This one is fantastic. The burn, smoke output, and journey of flavors set this apart from most lanceros that I have smoked. I can't recommend these enough. Go out and buy some. " -Alan (Eulogy)

"This cigar had an outstanding start, with excellent flavors and transition. It really had a lot going for it. Unfortunately the burn problems more than halfway in took away from the joy this cigar had been. " -Isaac M. (The Nothing)
"A truly enjoyable cigar from first light to the end. Flavors were on point and melded together to create a great experience. I'd easily give this a "great" and would definitely buy at least a fiver if not a box." -Kevin J. (maninblack77)
Crowned Heads is releasing a line extension to it's Juarez brand, Juarez 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. Juarez is actually one of the 67 municipalities of the state of Chihuahua, in northern Mexico.
"Overall this was a good cigar. Very consistent, flavorful, not terribly complex, but still delicious. Nothing stood out like a beacon for me, it was just easy going and well constructed with enough flavor. An easy recommendation if an affordable stick." -John A. (Bostoneo)

"From start to finish this cigar was a winner in my opinion. The creaminess, the floral notes along with the fruity zest, and the leather note all worked well together. But man does that strength sneak up on you. This is definitely a cigar I'd try again. But not on an empty stomach. I'd give this a 'great'. Box worthy for sure. " -Kevin J. (maninblack77)
