JD Howard Reserve HR52 Toro Cigars by Crowned Heads
When Jon Huber, Mike Condor and a team of
all-stars left CAO to create Crowned Heads, they embarked on what has become
one of the great success stories in the cigar world. With an established base
of rabid fans and a solid, now-legendary partnership with Ernesto
Perez-Carrillo, the team has delivered their best effort yet with the sumptuous
JD Howard Reserve.
The Crowned Heads JD Howard Reserve HR52 is
beautifully crafted 6” x 52 cigar built around a core of hearty Nicaraguan
filler tobaccos which are nestled in a supple Ecuadorian Sumatra binder leaf. A
unique Arapiraca wrapper leaf from eastern Brazil surrounds it all to make a
wondrous smoke of about an hour.
Once the JD Howard Reserve HR52 is set to fire,
wave after wave of wood, pepper and spice flavors roll over the palate. Hints
of coffee, leather and licorice leap into the complex medium-to-full bodied
excursion while tantalizing splashes of cocoa emerge to cap off the balanced
and satisfying smoke.
JD Howard was, of course, an alias of notorious
outlaw Jesse James and the JD Howard Reserve HR52 lives up to the legend with
amazing richness and bravado, while maintaining a luxuriously smooth nature.
For a movie night that just can’t be beat, fire up a JD Howard Reserve HR52, pour
a fine Tennessee whiskey and enjoy the epic sweep of your favorite Western!
