Crowned Heads has a announced a new limited production line extension to its Court Reserve XVIII line. The new vitola is a 5 7/8 x 52 box-pressed vitola known as “Full Court Press.”

“The idea came to me last May during the NBA playoffs, said Jon Huber, co-founder/owner of Crowned Heads in a press release. “Initially, I tossed the name out there somewhat as a corny double entendre, but the more I thought about it the more I liked the idea of releasing a box-pressed expression of CHC Reserve. Once I smoked the sample it was a no-brainer to go to production.”

A total of 1,700 twelve-count boxes will be produced. Production will be handled out of Ernesto Perez-Carrillo Jr’s Tabacalera La Alianza factory, which produces the other sizes in the line. Pricing is set at $11.95 per cigar.
