The latest limited edition release from Crowned Heads, expected to arrive at the end of February or early March, just arrived right before we flipped the calendar to April. The Single Action LE will be added to the other five vitolas in the J.D. Howard Reserve line with the same blend, but with an added twist. Literally, a twisted pig-tail cap!

One thing you really notice about this cigar is the amount of flavor it delivers. Initial flavors of sweetness and a delicious BBQ undertone blast the palate with an added bonus of earth, chocolate, and pepper later on and the rest of the way. The small ring gauge really lets the Brazilian wrapper shine and I like what it had to offer.
Each sample I tried had absolutely perfect construction throughout the entire smoke which really impressed me. On top of that this cigar delivered rich flavors that anyone can enjoy this time of year. With only 20,000 cigars being made, this is one you will want to stock up on and keep for that perfect occasion around the grill or a bonfire. The only area this cigar lacked for me was the medium body just didn’t feel like it fit the flavors I was getting. I would have liked something more full, but I still think the blend is great and worth a box or two.
