Cigar Review: Crowned Heads Jericho Hill LBV
Cr0wned Heads is a cigar brand with which I'm not terribly familiar. I've come across them in the past, but I couldn't tell you if I've ever had one of their cigars. So, when a friend offered me one of his Crowned Heads Jericho Hill LBVs that he'd been sitting on for a few years, I was pretty pumped!
This cigar is long, thin, and beautifully dark. After a couple of quick pokes with my Select Draw Cigar Cutter, the Jericho Hill lit easily.
Regarding the flavors, there are rich, leathery flavors combined with spice. It tastes both exotic and familiar, with it's Mexican San Andres wrapper and Nicaraguan fillers.

After enjoying the Crowned Heads Jericho Hill LBV for almost two hours, I have to say, I liked this cigar. The draw was near perfect, and although there was a slightly uneven burn in the middle, this cigar performed very well. The peppery, leathery flavors were delicious and never got harsh.
Because I'd smoke this cigar again, and because it comes in at a more-than-fair pricepoint, the Crowned Heads Jericho Hill earns a CigarScore 5.
