Jericho Hill Shots is the first size extension of the ever-popular Jericho Hill cigar from Crowned Heads. The new Jericho Hill Shots will be available in 50 count boxes and at a price of $5.95 a stick are a very affordable cigar option. Production will be limited to 1,000 boxes for a total of 50,000 sticks a year. Shots will be produced each winter.

In case you are short on time, here is the cliff notes version. It is a Jericho Hill cigar in a more compact and full flavored size. In short, it’s awesome.

Looks: It’s a mini Jericho Hill! The new Shots size shares the existing Jericho Hill black and gold band. The cigar itself has a very nice and dark Mexican San Andres wrapper leaf with minimal veins and is finished off with a triple cap.

Taste: Boom! This cigar opens with strong wood notes and spice. Upon smoking, the flavors of cocoa and pepper start to become ever more present. I do have to say out of the three sticks that I have smoked so far, something amazing happens with the flavor in the final third of this cigar. The flavors all culminate into an extremely pleasant taste that makes me sad to see it come to an end. The creaminess that Crowned Heads sticks are known for is present throughout the smoke.

Burn: Spot on. Like I said above, I have smoked three of these sticks, all have burned perfectly with a clean, crisp, even burn throughout. Smoke was thick and white.

Buy it? It’s the perfect size for anyone who is short on time but does not want to sacrifice flavor. Taking the dog for a walk? Jericho Hill Shots. Lunch break? Jericho Hill Shots. Waiting for the kids? Well, you get the point. Find them, buy them, and let us know what you think!
