Welcome to another Member sponsored Geek Critique generously sponsored by our member ninfiction (Brian). The cigar provided for this round is the">Crowned Heads TAA 2022 The Lost Angel.

The Crowned Heads The Lost Angel TAA 2022 cigar is the third release of this sought-after exclusive premium cigar. The Lost Angel is a line extension to the Angel's Anvil brand. It features a dark red Mexican San Andres maduro wrapper that cloaks an Ecuadorian binder and a filler composed of leaves from the Dominican Republic and from two regions in Nicaragua. Once lit, you'll lose yourself in this medium-strength robusto's complexity of flavors and bold intensity. The cigars are handmade at the Tabacalera Pichardo factory in Nicaragua (home to such Crowned Heads brands as Juárez, Mil Días, and Serie E). Only 1,000 boxes of 20 cigars per box were made.

This cigar was enjoyed with Ice Water

Pre-Light: 10 Points of 10 Possible

This is one good looking cigar.

There aren't any prominent veins. The dry wrapper is smooth to the touch and is well filled without any soft spots. The pre-light draw provides a hint of chocolate.

The carefully applied cap was removed easily with a straight cut and never caused a problem.

Lighting and Burn: 12 Points of 15 Possible

The cigar lit easily.

The ash fell off at about one inch, missing my lap.

It did require two relights, the second due to tunneling. Not terrible in the Florida humidity.

Smoke was plentiful with this slow burning stick.

Construction: 27 Points of 30 Possible

The draw was slightly tight at the start but opened up in the second half.

The wrapper developed a small crack in the second third and widened slightly, but never caused an issue. The cap remained solid.

Flavor and Aroma: 42 Points of 45 Possible

Starting out, there was a little pepper on the retrohale with  an aftertaste of chocolate. Cream and citrus entered at the close of the first third.

The second third began with more chocolate and lots of sweetness. Pepper is still present on the retrohale, but no other spices. A pleasant sweet taste coats the tongue.

The final third opened with lemon mixed in with the cream until chocolate dominated the rest of the smoke.


This was not a complex cigar for me. Call it a one trick pony, but it worked because I enjoyed the trick. This is truly a dessert cigar.

I enjoyed this cigar very much and definitely will be looking to get some more.

My thanks to Brian for his sponsorship and the opportunity to sample this quality cigar.
