Crowned Heads Reserve XVIII Full Court Press
By no surprise, the Crowned Heads Reserve XVIII Full Court Press is the first cigar on Greg’s list. The Crowned Heads Reserve XVIII Full Court Press is limited edition cigars that were crafted to honor the brands loyal following, who are referred to as the “Court”. The Limited-Edition Full Court Press was expertly handcrafted at Ernesto Perez Carrillo’s prestigious factory in the Dominican Republic.
When it comes to the Limited-Edition Full Court Press, this dark and oily smoke is cloaked in a Mexican San Andres wrapper, with Nicaraguan Fillers, and an Ecuadorian binder. Rolled in the popular 5.88 x 52 size, this medium to full-bodied cigar has savory flavor notes of chocolate, wood, toast, and cedar. Greg describes the Full Court Press as a “delicious chocolate bar” that he can enjoy any time of the day.
Having this limited-edition cigar released in 2002, then disappeared until 2017, the Illusione OneOff cigar was created by master blender Dion Gioliti. When Gioliti decided to bring back these premium handmade smokes, he wanted to stay true to the original iteration by bringing back the same flavor and packaging.
Although being a medium-bodied smoke, the Illusione OneOff Super Robusto packs a lot of flavor and intensity all in one. This Nicaraguan Puro has tasty flavor notes of sweet cedar, white pepper, and toasted almonds. The OneOff Super Robusto is a well-crafted smoke that comes in a 5.75 x 48 vitola has the perfect balance between flavor and strength you will enjoy with each and every puff.
Todos Las Dias
From the great mind of Steve Saka of Dunbarton Tobacco and Trust comes Todos Las Dias. The translation for Todos Las Dias is “All the Days”, which follows the trend of all Dunbarton Tobacco and Trust cigars having meanings behind all of their smokes. This took the cigar world by storm when it was released at the 2017 IPCPR Trade Show. Saka stated that “This cigar is for the hardworking person, who loves cigars just as much as I do”.
Todos Las Dias in the Thick Lonsdale size is a full-bodied Nicaraguan Puro cigar that comes in a 6 x 46 size that’s extremely delicious. This special treat for a seasoned smoker has a plethora of delicious flavor notes. Some notes you’ll experience while smoking the Todos Las Dias are pepper, earth, espresso, wood, with a sweet caramel finish. The Todos Las Dias is one of Greg’s favorites he enjoys smoking any chance he gets.
Ashton Aged Maduro
The Ashton Aged Maduro No. 50 is a handcrafted cigar that hails from the famous Chateau de la Fuente in the Dominican Republic. The Ashton Aged Maduro is an instant classic due to the reputation Arturo Fuente name has. Ashton Cigar founder Robert Levin aged the tobaccos for so long, that the Aged Maduro is one of these cigars that is near perfect.
The No. 50 Ashton Aged Maduro is cloaked in a dark, rich Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper, with binder and filler tobaccos from the Dominican Republic. This Medium-Bodied smoke comes in a 7 x 48 Churchill size that has delicious flavors flowing through the entire smoke. The flavor comes from natural fermentation that has a combination of natural sweetness as well as subtle undertones of nuts that captivate the palate.
Davidoff Winston Churchill
Created to honor former prime minister of England, the Davidoff Winston Churchill cigars are regarded by many as one of the greatest premium cigars to have ever been created. Much like Winston Churchill himself, the Davidoff Winston Churchill is unique, bold, and filled to the brim with extraordinary tobaccos from all over North and South America.
With an Ecuador Habano wrapper, Nicaraguan Fillers, and a binder from Mexico, the Davidoff Winston Churchill Toro is a medium to full-bodied smoke that deserves a place in every aficionado’s humidor. Your palate will experience a cacophony of flavor notes such as almonds, sweet cream, and caramel on the back end of the smoke. Greg thinks the perfect time to have a Davidoff Winston Churchill is right after some birthday cake, with a scotch on the rocks!
