Crowned Heads The Yellow Rose (Box Count 20)

Crowned Heads released a third state exclusive, this time a 6 1/4 x 54 box-pressed torpedo for Texas named Yellow Rose. All three cigars feature different colored foot bands made of ribbon, and all three cigars share the same blend: a Connecticut broadleaf wrapper covering binder and filler tobacco from Nicaragua.

he marketing materials for the Yellow Rose release have this to say about the background of the name:

The Yellow Rose of Texas” is a traditional folk song that dates back to circa 1836.

The song became popular among Confederate soldiers in the Texas Brigade during the American Civil War. General John Bell Hood introduced it as a marching song to the Army of Tennessee in July 1864. It is in the spirit of this song that Crowned Heads presents, “The Yellow Rose,” a cigar created exclusively for the great state of Texas.

Yellow Rose is rolled at My Father Cigars S.A. in Esteli, Nicaragua.

The Yellow Rose looks quite rustic from first glance, with a gnarly dark espresso brown wrapper that is both exceedingly rough to the touch and covered in a copious number of veins. It is actually a little more spongy when squeezed than I expected, and if there is any oil present, I can’t see it. Aroma from the wrapper is a combination of strong manure, hay, earth, sweet raisons and pepper, while the cold draw brings flavors of barnyard, baker’s spices, leather and oak, with a touch of spice on the tongue.
