Wrapper: Habano Seed Connnecticut
(Original is a Habano Seed Ecuadorian Shade grown Wrapper)
Crowned Heads were THE GUYS especially when CAO was at its Height. The fact that these Nashville Guys had the game in a choke hold for a segment of time post 90’s Cigar Boom was more than incredible. CAO even had a Sopranos cigar (HBO series).
The cigars came in a Box that looked like the Trunk of a Car. Once General Cigars purchased CAO, they knew they had to keep up with the uniqueness that was established By John Huber and the crew.
I’ve hung out with John a few times. He’s a very low-key guy who’s real and genuine. I’ve smoked 80% of the Crowned Heads Catalog and the Four Kicks Maduro is definitely a great addition to their portfolio. Most of the Crowned Heads Cigars are made in the Ernesto Carrillo Factory in the Dominican Republic. (Refer to blend and notice its not Dominican).
In this episode we talk about, Crowned Heads Group, Nashville cigar making, lighters, Lieberman method/too, Maduro wrapper, flavor and body, time and enjoyment, contributions to the industry, walk in humidors in a brick and mortar, mild to medium bodied, strength and delivery of a cigar.
