La Imperiosa Double Robusto (Toro) by Crowned Heads

COVID-19 Day 504
 Churchill, Crowned Heads, Double Robusto, Ecuadorian Habano Oscuro, La Imperiosa, Oscuro, Toro This La Imperiosa Double Robusto (Toro) by Crowned Heads is a very dark Oscuro wrapped cigar, and I can’t wait to get it started!

Once lit, full deep rich tobacco flavors create a full-bodied smoking experience. Creamy leather, chocolate, cookies, and dried fruit tobacco flavors come to me.

I’m cruising along with this La Imperiosa in Double Robusto (Toro) and in conversations with the Fellas at Sellwood Cigar Lounge today talking mostly about Star Wars and Star Trek… really?

Anyway, I’m about to run low on my supply of these La Imperiosa cigars, so I’m on the lookout!

COVID-19 Cigar Walk, Day 92: 4.5-Mile Cigar
Churchill, Crowned Heads, Double Robusto, Ecuadorian Habano Oscuro, La Imperiosa, Oscuro, Toro Wow, did I ever underestimate this La Imperiosa in Double Robusto (6.325” x 50, Toro) by Crowned Heads… I had guessed that this would be a solid 3-Mile cigar… It was a Round-Trip-Cigar at 4.5-Miles… A beauty!

And, I could have taken it to 5-Miles… Next Time!

It looks like my inventory is running low… time to purchase some more of these delicious cigars!

I am no stranger to this beautiful cigar… and, I’m very happy that my memory served me well today. Through a perfect draw, dark chocolate and creamy leather are delivered with a complimentary mild retrohale.

At the second third, creamy malty earthy dark cocoa riding on leather flavors come through a perfect draw delivering volumes of smoke with a chocolaty leather finish on the retrohale.
At the last and delicious third… three hours later… this cigar is Always a winner and will remain a staple in the Sakamoto Cigar Rotation

Churchill, Crowned Heads, Double Robusto, Ecuadorian Habano Oscuro, La ImperiosaI was searching for a cigar to celebrate and honor “My Father Monday” today; what a perfect excuse to choose the Crowned Heads La Imperiosa that was manufactured in the My Father Cigar factory in Esteli, Nicaragua.

From my last entry on 12.23.18, you know that I fell in love with this cigar at first puff. Nothing has changed my mind. This is a box worthy cigar.

Today was no different and I totally immersed myself and indulged at the beautiful qualities of the Crowned Heads La Imperiosa today. So much that I had a hard time determining when I was finished.

This is a Finger-Burner cigar

Yesterday, I was enjoying watching Sumo Ralph enjoy his Crowned Heads La Imperiosa Double Robusto so much that I had to have one for myself today.

“General” information on several cigar review websites is: “…The blend of 100% Nicaraguan binder and filler tobaccos, finished with a dark Ecuador Habano Oscuro wrapper; identical to the Las Calaveras EL 2014 blend…” So, if you were a fan of the 2014 Las Calaveras EL then you’ll probably enjoy this cigar too.

Churchill, Crowned Heads, Double Robusto, Ecuadorian Habano Oscuro, La ImperiosaI’ve had several of the Crowned Heads La Imperiosa in the Magicos (4 ½” x 52, Robusto) size and I’ve been a fan since. Today is my first Double Robusto (6 3/8” x 50, Churchill).

I’m going back to my straight-cuts and I’m thinking I might try being a little more aggressive on the first cut; let’s open up this cigar…

The cold draw on this long tall beautiful cigar is full of chocolate and coffee. Once lit creamy earthy chocolate graham cracker arrives in my chewy mouthful of smoke and continues for the first third.

At the halfway point, flavors start to slightly amp up, but not too much, dry fruit (fruitcake) is starting to appear. I’m liking this Double Robusto size over the Magicos; I’m getting more of what I like before it changes into the next transition at the last third as opposed to the Magicos (Robusto) that amped up a lot quicker. I suspect this will do the same in a few moments.

At the last third and I’m about to put this down, but everything has ramped up; there is more coffee, dark chocolate, cedar showed up and a little pepper on the retrohale. Others have mentioned lots of pepper, red or otherwise but I’m remiss to that at this point.

My bottom-line; the Double Robusto is the one I will keep in my TupperDor

Stay Smoky

Nothing to report differently. I was enjoying this cigar too much to take notes.


Tons of chewy smoke came with my third The Crowned Heads La Imperiosa, this time in a Double Robusto size that performed very well.

Chewy smoke with Earth and Leather with a little Spicy Wood (Cedar) somewhere.

I have a few of these that I look forward to enjoying. A solid and affordable cigar that got its origins from The Crowned Heads Las Calaveras ’14 (same blend).
