Next month, Crowned Heads’ Juaréz brand will be getting its smallest vitola.

The Juárez Shots XX is a 4 x 50 petit robusto that uses a Mexican San Andrés wrapper over an Ecuadorian Sumatra binder and fillers from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua. This is the fourth size for the line, which debuted in December 2018 as a Thompson Cigar exclusive but is now offered to all Crowned Heads accounts.

This is the fourth size for the line and the first one that will be a limited edition. Shots XX is limited to 500 boxes of 50 cigars. Pricing is set at $5.45 per cigar.

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

“In 2015 we released Jericho Hill Shots and followed that up in 2016 with La Imperiosa Minutos,” said Jon Huber, co-founder of Crowned Heads, in a press release. “Both of these releases were created specifically to address the need for short, quick smokes for the winter months. The reception we’ve received on Juárez since we released it last summer has been amazing, and I think existing Juárez fans are going to clamor for this little flavor bomb.”

Juárez is named after Johnny Cash’s “Cocaine Blues.” The line is produced at Tabacalera Pichardo in Estelí, Nicaragua.
