For the third time in four years, Crowned Heads is bringing back the Le Carême Belicosos Finos limited edition cigar.
The Le Carême Belicosos Finos is a 5 1/2 x 52 belicoso based on one of the iconic sizes found in the Cuban market. While the regular production line of Le Carême is box-pressed, the Le Carême Belicosos Finos is unique in that it is a rounded vitola.
Le Carême Belicosos Finos is the same blend as the regular production Le Carême line. This features a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper over an Ecuadorian Sumatra binder and Nicaraguan fillers. Production is handled at Crowned Heads long-time manufacturing partner Tabacalera La Alianza under the supervision of Ernesto Perez-Carrillo Jr.
The Le Carême Belicosos Finos was first introduced in 2018, and that same year captured the #18 spot on the 2018 Cigar Coop Cigar of the Year Countdown. One year later, Crowned Heads brought the Belicosos Finos back for another limited run. The cigar was not re-released in 2020.
“Despite the fact that we were completely out of stock on all Le Carême cigars in 2020 due to a shortage on Connecticut Broadleaf (wrapper) tobacco, we still continue to receive weekly inquiries on the Le Carême line,” commented on Huber, co-founder of Crowned Heads, in a press release. “We’re extremely excited to be bring back not only the Belicosos Finos, but the Le Carême brand as well, into the retail spotlight.”
There is a total production of 1,000 12-count boxes (12,000 cigars). Pricing for the Le Carême Belicosos Finos is set at $11.00 MSRP.
