Crowned Heads Juarez
The Crowned Heads Juarez cigar comes with some really cool branding. The packaging and the band display the silhouette of a bull with an elevated crown. The bull's branding is five tally marks. In the movies, we often see people in jail use tally marks to count the days, months, or years. If we look at the lyrics of "Cocaine Blues," we see numerous references to the number five, jail, and, of course, Juarez. The bull is likely a reference to Juarez as well. Johnny also sang the tune at his famous Folsom Prison concert, which most likely serves as the primary reference point for the tally marks.
Crowned Heads Juarez cigars run on Dominican and Nicaraguan filler tobaccos. Above these is an Ecuadorian Sumatra binder. The wrapper is a Mexican San Andrés Maduro leaf. One respected reviewer believes it’s the Sumatra binder that adds complexity to the Crowned Heads Juarez. This same reviewer quotes Ernesto Perez-Carrillo stating that Sumatra is one of the most flavorful and that it adds complexity to the blend.
Once you spark one of these value-conscious stogies up, you’re in for a complex experience of nuts, black coffee, caramel, and peppery spice.
