    Initial Thoughts:
    Cigars take time to make. Not only does a cigar need to age, but the leaves have to be harvested and dried and fermented before they’re rolled into something we can smoke. And today’s cigar, the Crowned Heads Mil Dias Edmundo, is a nod to the 1000 days (mil dias) that it took to create this blend.

    Once the Mil Dias was out of the cellophane, the Ecuadorian Habano wrapper was fairly dry. Some cigars have oily leaves for their wrapper, but this cigar does not.

    I also noticed, based on what I could see at the foot, that this cigar looked very dense. After punching the end cap, my fear of a tight draw was confirmed. Cutting the cigar a second time, this time with my guillotine, the draw was still tight, but tasted of cedar.

    CigarScore: 3
    Brand: Crowned Heads
    Line: Mil Dias
    Size: 5 1/3 x 52
    Cut: Guillotine
    Light: Torch

    Wrapper: Ecuadorian Habano
    Binder: Nicaragua
    Filler: Nicaragua, Peru, Costa Rica
    Smoke Time: 72 minutes

    Through the middle of the cigar, the tear in the wrapper leaf became more apparent. Also, the wrapper popped open as it heated up. Both issues were minimized by the paper label which served to keep the cigar together. However, after the first third, the draw did open up.

    Regarding the flavors, they’re mostly good; I tasted leather, spice, and under-aged and green tobacco flavors.

    Final Thoughts

    Uneven burn; pops, busted seams, and tears. Not ready to be smoked. That’s my overall experience with the Crowned Heads Mil Dias Edmundo.

    Instead of calling this cigar “mil dias,” Crowned Heads should’ve aged this cigar for longer and called it “tres mil dias” instead (3000 days). The rich, bold flavors I normally associate with Crowned Heads cigars were almost entirely absent from this cigar.

    Overall, the construction issues really hurt this cigar. And, the weird flavors didn’t really do the Mil Dias much of a favor. Had the cigar either been better made or had tasted better, it would have scored higher. However, the Crowned Heads Mil Dias Edmundo that I smoked earns a CigarScore 3.
