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 cigars....an impressive feat in handmade cigars that just might have you craving for more....daily.
