Brazil Arapiraca Maduro, Brazilian Arapiraca, Crowned Heads, Dominican Republic, HR50, J.D. Howard Reserve, Toro I was surprised at how fast this J.D. Howard Reserve HR50 smoked today. Maybe the warm weather affects how fast these cigars burn.

Not even two miles from this cigar this morning… I’ll have to keep an eye on this next time.

If I haven’t declared it “Officially”, it’s fact; the J.D. Howard Reserve by Crowned Heads is permanently in the Sakamoto Cigar-Rotation.

This Crowned Heads Cigar delivers and hits all my flavor check-points… the Brazilian Arapiraca Maduro wrapper has captivated my attention.

Definitely Box-Worthy!
