Following the release of both the Tennessee-exclusive Tennessee Waltz and the Hawaii-exclusive Paniolo Especiale 2015, 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.
'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.
