A fifth size will be coming to Crowned Heads’ Juárez line.

The company has teased a new 5 1/2 x 48 size that will come in boxes of 20. Jon Huber, co-founder of Crowned Heads, told halfwheel that a formal announcement about the cigar is expected next week.

There are four existing sizes of Juárez, one of which is a limited edition:

  • Juárez OBS (4 3/4 x 52) — $5.95 (Box of 20, $119) — Regular Production
  • Juárez Willy Lee (6 x 54) — $6.95 (Box of 12, $83.40) — Regular Production
  • Juárez Jack Brown (5 x 56) — $7.95 (Box of 20, $159) — Regular Production
  • Juárez Shots XX (4 x 50) — $5.45 (Box of 50, $272.50) — 500 Boxes of 50 (25,000 Total Cigars)

Juárez uses a Mexican San Andrés wrapper over an Ecuadorian Sumatran binder and Dominican and Nicaraguan fillers. The line is made at Tabacalera Pichardo in Nicaragua.

Its name is inspired by Johnny Cash’s version of the song “Cocaine Blues” with each vitola’s name being a reference to the song.
