Crowned Heads has announced it is adding a limited edition line extension to its Le Carême line. Next month, shipping will begin on the new Le Carême Belicosos Finos LE 2018.
While Crowned Heads has added limited edition line extensions to its other lines, this is the first limited edition to Le Carême. The vitola is the classic 5 1/2 x 52 Belicoso Fino size – a size made popular in the Habanos Bolivar line. While the Le Carême is a trunk pressed line, the Le Carême Belicosos Finos LE 2018 will be a rounded vitola.
“Last year, Miguel Schoedel (Crowned Heads National Sales Manager) presented the concept to us,” commented Crowned Heads co-founder Jon Huber in a press release. “The Bolivar Belicoso Fino has always been one of my ‘desert island’ cigars, so we began to work on the project with Ernesto (Perez-Carrillo), and the end result was very impressive. The vitola in the Le Carême blend added a whole next-level dimension of richness and flavor to an already exquisite blend.”
The Le Carême Belicosos Finos LE 2018 uses the same blend components as the regular production line. This includes a Grade A Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper, Ecuadorian Sumatra binder, and Nicaraguan filler tobaccos. The Le Carême Belicosos Finos LE 2018 will be packaged in 12-count boxes. Production will be limited to 1,500 boxes (18,000 cigars). Pricing is set at $10.00 per cigar ($120.00 per box).
