Jericho Hill by Crowned Heads


At first glance, this Crowned Heads, Jericho Hill, Jack Brown (Robusto) vitola is a huge 56 ring-gauge. Let’s see what it delivers. I’m looking forward to the Mexican San Andres wrapper on this large cigar.

This feels and looks like a large ring gauge (56) for a Robusto so; I had to punch another hole next to the first since the draw was still too firm for my liking. We’ll see how long I want to give my cheeks a workout.

The flavors are perfect, right in my wheelhouse. I’m digging this Crowned Heads Jericho Hill so far.

At the end of the first third, I straight cut my triple cap as I become tired of struggling with the draw. More delicious smoke appears but as I get down to the last couple of inches… the difficult draw could be the fatal flaw for this tasty cigar, but it could be this particular cigar. I’ll have to try another. I’m glad I have more.

At the final third, there were no transitions I could detect; still a very nice experience. I think the next Jericho Hill cigar I purchase will maybe have a smaller ring gauge.

Cigar Sensei says this will be a cigar to lay down and age; it will improve over time.
