Walk the line with this Johnny Cash inspired cigar by Crowned Heads, Juarez. This new addition to the Crowned Heads portfolio is exclusively made for Thompson Cigar as a more affordable option to the brand’s previous release Jericho Hill. Crafted out of Tabacalera Pichardo in Esteli, Nicaragua, the fourth factory Crowned Heads has worked with, Juarez consists of a Mexican San Andres wrapper over top an Ecuadorian Sumatra binder and filler tobaccos from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua. Delicious and affordable, what more could you ask for in your cigar selection? Crowned Heads Juarez Whilly is a must-try to add to your collection.
I find it odd that Crowned Heads would make a tweaked version of an already great cigar at an unknown factory for a sub-par retailer but I enjoy a lot of their products so I gave it a try. The wrapper is not as dark as I expected but the flavor and strength were medium to strong. A lot of pepper and some woody and earthy characteristics in the profile. It was enjoyable and I would buy more, especially at a low price point. Its not as good as the Jericho Hill and the profile was pretty different.
