The Crowned Heads Angel’s Anvil TAA 2014 cigar is one of two limited production cigars released by the company in 2014 (the other being Las Calaveras). This one is another release by Ernesto Perez Carrillo’s Tabacalera La Alianza in the Dominican Republic. This one is going the TAA (Tobacconist Association of America) and is one of 7 exclusive cigars released to TAA retailers in 2014. This marks the first time Crowned Heads has produced a blend. The name The Angel’s Anvil is a play on the TAA acronym.

The Angel’s Anvil delivers a mix of natural tobacco, toasted cedar nut, floral, and pepper notes. The flavors meshed quite well, but they just did not have me doing handstands. I found this smoke to be a medium strength – medium-bodied cigar in the first half, and one that progresses to medium to full in the second half. The construction was excellent.

Overall I have found as whole this year’s 2014 TAA series to be quite disappointing and The Angel’s Anvil, at $11 did not provide a lot of wow factor. I’d still encourage one to try this and I give it a Try One.
