Last month Crowned Heads announced it was launching a regular production line being produced by Drew Estate’s La Gran Fabrica known as La Coalición. Yesterday, Drew Estate announced details of the project from their end, including a look at some of the packaging around the cigar itself.
It’s actually the third project Crowned Heads has worked with Drew Estate on. The previous two projects were more limited in nature. Last year, Crowned Heads announced its Ohio regional release Buckeye Land would be produced by Drew Estate. This year, Crowned Heads announced the Hawaii exclusive Paniolo 2019 as a second release coming out of Drew Estate. La Coalición is the first regular production release the companies have teamed up for.
The cigar features a Grade A Dark Connecticut Broadleaf, a Sumatra binder, and fillers from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. It will come in four sizes: Corona (5 x 46), Gordito (5 1/2 x 50), Siglo (6 x 52), and Sublime (6 1/2 x 54).
In a press release from Drew Estate, Master Blender Willy Herrera Master Blender commented, “Huber and I have always had a similar palate for what notes we are looking for in our blends. Working together, we knew from the beginning we wanted to utilize the dense, oily Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper which is the inspiration for this killer smoke. La Coalicion is a passion product that Huber and I are really proud of.”
Crowned Heads co-found Jon Huber commented, “I’ve personally wanted to work with Willy for years now, as I feel that our aesthetic towards cigars are similar and we also share a common respect and passion towards the tradition of premium cigars. Further, being able to tap into the creative juggernaut that is Drew Estate has been an amazing experience. I’ve long respected what the DE brand has achieved, and I believe their personal brand extends far beyond just ‘cigars;’ they’re truly an innovator, disruptor, and a game changer within our industry.”
Jonathan Drew President and Founder of Drew Estate added: “I am proud to report that Drew Estate always remains “Boutique in the Heart” in everything we create. This collaboration with Crowned Heads has been gratifying, mostly because of their passion and intensity. Plus, their hat game is on point!”
