This was a blind review by our members.

This one has been generously sponsored by our member appollo (Stephen).  The cigar provided for this round is the">Crowned Heads Jericho Hill 12 Honest Men.  Jericho Hill is a hedonistic blend of the best Nicaraguan binder and filler tobaccos, resulting in a rich and robust taste profile that is focused, potent, and complex. The smoke is a full-throttle experience that assaults your palate at break-neck speed, races around your mouth for a hundred miles, and leaves your taste buds in a cloud of power, intensity, and excitement. The dark wrapper leaf utilized on Jericho Hill is a nod to "The Man in Black". Manufactured at My Father Cigars S.A., Esteli, Nicaragua, and distributed by Crowned Heads.

This cigar was enjoyed with Evian Raspberry Seltzer

Pre-Light: 7 Points of 10 Possible

Semi-oily wrapper, with no prominent veins, but has a rustic look to it. The cap was ok, but there was a slight split when cut with a v-cutter. Cigar was firmly packed, with a faint tobacco aroma. The cold draw gave me a faint sweet tobacco taste.

Lighting and Burn: 12 Points of 15 Possible

The burn was good, and stayed pretty even after the first third. The beginning had the wrapper coming off in one section. The ash held solid in 1/2"-1" chunks. The ash color was white, with a little bit of black shading. The burn was nice and slow, requiring no re-lights. The smoke volume was in the light to medium range.

Construction: 24 Points of 30 Possible

The draw was good, with a nice balance of openness and resistance. The wrapper came off in one section in the first third of smoking, exposing the binder. The cap split when cut with a v-cutter, so I applied a straight cut, which kept the cigar from unwrapping.

Flavor and Aroma: 35 Points of 45 Possible

The cigar started off with a heavy, meaty char taste, along with pepper. The smoke was smooth, and had a nice aftertaste. This flavor profile stayed the same throughout the entire cigar, with the exception of the pepper ticking up in the last third, and had a touch of bitterness at the end.


I was a bit disappointed in the first third of this cigar from a performance standpoint. Overall, it was enjoyable, and corrected itself once I burned through the flaws. The flavor profile is not one of my favorites, but it was enjoyable. I smoked it while floating in my pool! Thank you to Stephen for including me in this CG. I am sure that my guess is wrong, but that is ok!
