Black Crown Sale

Black Crown, where complexity meets balance.

This brand may come to you from parts unknown, but rest assured, Black Crown cigars hail from one of the industry's premier boutique factories. Raices Cubanas is based in Danli, Honduras, and has been responsible for some of the industry's hottest, highest-rated handmades over the past few years. And while you'll be hard-pressed to find a rating for Black Crown - due to a near-zero marketing budget - you will no doubt fall in love with this enchanting medium to full-bodied blend. Enter Black Crown, a cigar primed for the exploratory enthusiast and ready to please the eager palates of any and all willing.

To craft Black Crown, an absolutely gorgeous Honduran Habano wrapper was carefully fermented to achieve a dark, leathery leaf that's both toothy and oily. Despite this leaf's natural full-flavored charisma, it's the blend beneath that earns the limelight. Seven different long-fillers, all vintage, from Cuban-seed, and grown throughout Central America, are expertly blended inside two feisty binders - an earthy Honduran Habano and rich Nicaraguan ligero. After extensive aging, this supremely complex recipe serves up an eventful, medium to full array of bold yet balanced flavors. An experienced palate may note earth, toasted peanut, cocoa, and cedar, with a dash of black pepper on the finish complementing a unique sweetness perfectly. A lesser experienced palate will note an extremely flavorful cigar that's unique and satisfying. One that burns incredibly slow and introduces your taste buds to a level of flavor unrivaled by most handmades in this price arena. Black Crown impressive feat in handmade cigars that just might have you craving for more....daily.

with over 40 years as a cigar smoker, this one really rocks! Would definitely purchase again if it ever returns to stock...

Quick shipping, but no cigar boxes
It would be nice if the description of the cigars stated weather it came in a box or not. This would sway my decision on which cigars to order

I was gifted a Black Crown Robusto recently and I was excited based on the reviews. I thought this might be a good purchase based on the generally positive reviews and low price point. I smoke cigars every day in various shapes, sizes and strengths. I'm sorry to say this is one of the worst cigars I've had in years. It burned well; that's really the only nice thing I can say. Flavor was non-existent to bitter/awful throughout, no redeeming qualities, not enjoyable whatsoever. I gave it a fair shake and stomached it for about 70% through, then I pitched it. Stay away from this one; many other good deals at CI that are more pleasing to the palette. Smoke on gents!

They are OK....
Not a premium smoke by any measure. A bit bitter And not much complexity in flavor.

So much flavor trying to please, but the jerk who rolled it locked it up. You enjoy an inch then you fight the next just to keep it burning!!!

Black Crown Corona
Starts off weak, gets better. Cigar appears to be loosely packed, needs a tighter roll. Just an average cigar, 5 or 6 rating out of 10.

Excellent value
This stick cannot be beat for the value! Full of flavor from the first to the last puff. I smoke them down to the nub. Price makes it an easy everyday smoke.

A superb evening treat.
The Black Crown toro lives up to all that it is professed to be. A deliciously enticing flavor with a slow even burn, an easy draw and a pleasant after taste. A pleasant evening cigar to accompany a good cup of good coffee or a snifter of fine brandy. A nice treat.

Truly a pleasant surprise
These were a very welcome surprise. I had been eyeballing them for about a month before i picked up this box of 20. Fist of all the box is beautiful. But most of all the smokes that were inside were delicious. They remind me of the Gurka Black Ops. I give these out to my coworkers here in afghanistan and they loved it! Truly a pleasant surprise.

Beautiful Cigars with a Medium Bodied, Very Woody Flavor
Although I prefer a spicier cigar than this, I have to say I was very impressed with these. I picked up a box looking for a good every-day stogie and the price of these fit the bill. To me, these are smack-dab in the middle of the "medium bodied" range and have lots of wood flavors. The flavors can be a little on the bitter side, but never unpleasant. They do lack a certain richness of flavor, but what is there is solid and true. Mine suffered from some tunneling issues but nothing major (and I will add that I smoked these right out of the box with no more than a day or two in the humi). Of the handful I've smoked, all of them are beautifully rolled with immaculate wrappers. The box they also come in is very pleasing and make these look like far more expensive stogies. I'm going to let the rest sit for a couple weeks and see how they are. Right now, these are good smokes at a good price if you enjoy woody flavors.
Customer Testimonials
I'll keep it short: nutmeg, coffee, toffee and black pepper. It all happens in the 1st half; nothing changes after that. Really good; I just got myself 2 boxes.
Picked up a 10 pk. on sale. Nicely constructed cigar, but rather bland on the flavor. Spicy yes, but nothing else behind it. Kind of like cracked pepper on a baked potato. No butter, salt, sour cream, chives, or bacon bits. Just pepper.
Yes--just bought a 10-pack, and I was happily surprised--nice spice, not overpowering, and flavorful. I would buy these again.
This is a decent smoke. Nice construction, burn & ash. Decent flavor. The draw was tight. Like drinking a thick milkshake. Not a special occasion stick but maybe a good everyday smoke. Wouldnt buy a box but would get them in a sampler.
Nice tasty cigar if they would be more consistent in construction and burn. Out of a full box all have canoed and have bin a big disappointment(construction wise). I keep my humidor at about 66% humidity and have over 300 cigars in it, none of my other cigars canoe like this so I know it's not me. At the price point they are selling for, I expected a better quality cigar.
I smoked the robusto, and it had wonderful taste characteristics, except for the very end. The last inch or half seemed a bit lacking in flavor compared to the rest of the cigar. However, I didn't allow these to sit in the humidor long, so aging may be the key to unlocking the final flavor and completing the cigar. However, I would definitely buy it again.
Wasn't expecting much and was I surprised. Medium with excellent construction and perfect draw from the get go. Taste was consistent to the nub. Perhaps a bit more full near the last third. This goes on my wish list.
not a fan. coming unwrapped from the middle, hard draw and wispy smoke. unimpressed from the jump. I have another that I'll let stew in the box and hope it improves.
I must revise the previous review I wrote. This is one of the best cigars I have smoked. I won't insult the cigar by saying it tastes like smoking wood chips, like oak or cedar or whatever. It is a medium-bodied smoke that just tastes great. Before you finish, you will be searching your toolbox for hemostats or an alligator clip, so you can get the last bit of goodness from it. Yes, the price has increased, but that is probably because of demand. It's that good.
Personally wasn't a huge fan. Didn't have enough flavor for me. 3 out of 5 sticks that neither I nor my friends liked. Gonna leave the other two in the humi for a while and see if some time makes them better.
Just a great cigar, that's what I think of the brand "BLACK CROWN" in the Coronas size. Just great taste all around the cigar. It starts out mild and finishes off real nice and heavy , the way a cigar should. All the hype Is right ,a great cigar indeed. Amicalement
Great smoke. Good flavor. Well constructed. No downside to this one.
Picked up some of these during a weekend special.....couldn't wait to try them so lit one as soon as they arrived. If they improve with a little age, it will be an incredible smoke! The construction, burn, draw was excellent...two thumbs up for Black Crown!
Very nice cigar here. I got the Churchill because that's all that remained during a weekend special. I don't ordinarily like Churchill as they seem to have a hard draw and get tarry from the difficult puffing, but this was not the case here. Quality smokes make the difference I guess. I think for this Black Crown, the thinner ring gauge of the Churchill size makes a better taste of the double binders and wrapper. Near two hour celebration smoke, these.
These black crowns are fantastic. I recommend the toro size. It's one of the best I've had lately. Bought a box after smoking just two of them. I usually don't pull that trigger (on a box) until i've had 6 or 7, but 10 days after receiving it, it's half gone. Dynamite stick!
