The Crowned Heads Jericho Hill cigar was named for a curious reference, but big fans of Johnny Cash will get it. When Cash did his famous concert in Folsom Prison, he sang a song called “Cocaine Blues” about a criminal caught by the police in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico by a sheriff from Jericho Hill. The man had shot his old lady down (as they did quite a lot in many old songs). Why? Well, in the words of the killer, “I thought I was her daddy but she had five more."
You hate to hear it.
Anyhow, what can we say? The company just loves hard-hitting classic rock and roll with their cigars, and they often use particular tunes as the inspiration for particular blends.
Like Johnny Cash himself, the cigar is dark, brooding, and deeply layered. It showcases a Mexican San Andrés maduro wrapper in honor of Ciudad Juarez, but also gets plenty of edge from a potent Nicaraguan binder and long-fillers. It wouldn't be a Johnny Cash tribute without a little spice kick, now would it?
The Crowned Heads Jericho Hill cigar is sharply box-pressed with a Wild West-themed band, making for a striking presentation in its rustic dark wood boxes. In the years since its release, the Jericho Hill has become one of the biggest hits for Crowned Heads thanks to its punchy, maduro-powered palate. And like any other product of the My Father factory, this one is a quality cigar that you can absolutely count on to deliver the goods.
The San Andrés wrapper brings creamy waves of dark chocolate and spiced Mexican hot chocolate that are simply delicious. The Nicaraguan long-fillers, of course, are never far behind with their potent one-two punch of black pepper and dry earth. It's a spice bomb with creamy chocolate – a winning combination. Perhaps a bit rowdy, but destined to become timeless, just like the Man in Black himself.
