The Crown Jewel is a very nice cigar with a great presentation. The cigars have a red ribbon on the foot and a maroon and gold band depicting a crown and shield. My samples also came in individual coffins with a plexiglass slide top.
The Crown Jewel is a good looking cigar, the five year old sun grown wrapper had a nice deep brown,oily sheen.
The cigars felt firm with no soft spots. There was a sweet tobacco aroma on the foot and a rich, earthy tobacco aroma on the wrapper.
The pre-light draw was easy and had an almost tart, berry flavor. Right off the bat, the cigar produced a great amount of smoke volume. The ash was firm and gray in color and it held on for about an inch and a half before dropping.
The Crown Jewel is a very smooth smoke. There is a strong spice sensation up front that mellows about halfway. That spice picks up again in the last third of the cigar. In between, there are notes of a woody, cedar tobacco
