Cigar Review: Crowned Heads Juarez OBS

Initial Thoughts:

It's not every day we get to review a cigar that's been aging in our humidor for over a year. But that's the case with today's cigar, the Crowned Heads Juarez OBS, a cigar we got at NFG 2020, an event hosted by Underground Cigars in Fort Worth, Texas.

We've reviewed several Crowned Heads cigars, but today we're going to sample the Juarez OBS, a cigar that has quite the fragrance to it.

After snipping the end with my v-cutter, the cold draw was pretty good and I tasted hints of wood and powdered milk chocolate. Very odd and interesting. Once the cigar was lit, the fragrance of the smoke was awesome, and my hopes are high for the Crowned Heads Juarez OBS.

Through the middle of the cigar, specifically in the first third, there were some construction issues. There was an uneven burn that developed into a canoe, but those problems did fix themselves within just a few minutes. However, as the cigar developed, I didn't love the flavors. And the draw is somewhat tight.

Final Thoughts

Overall, the Crowned Heads Juarez OBS is an okay cigar. Soon after the cigar was lit, I experience a tight draw. And, I didn't love the flavors. And there were a couple of frustrating burn issues.

However, you might like the flavors of this Juarez OBS. In fact, I know some of you do. Additionally, for a $6 cigar, this one isn't that bad. For the most part, this is a decent cigar at a great price, so the Crowned Heads Juarez OBS earns a CigarScore 4.
