Crowned Heads release a new core line at the 2024 PCA Trade Show called Coroneta.  Coroneta is a derived from from the word coronet which is a small crown for lower royal ranks below monarchs from the 16th century.  Each size of the Coroneta is named after the British heraldry that would wear the coronet, Earl, Baron, and Duke.  Coroneta is a line which features both an Ecuadorian Habano and an San Andreas Maduro wrappers each using a unique blend.  Something else unique about this new line is that each version is made at a different factory.  The San Andreas version is being made at Casa Carrillo in the Dominican Republic by EP Carrillo.  The Habano is made at Nicaraguan American Cigars, S.A. (NACSA) in Esteli, Nicaragua.

Jon Huber, co-founder of Crowned Heads, state in a press release:

“The concept of simultaneously introducing one brand in two expressions from two different houses is something entirely first-time for us,” commented Crowned Heads co-founder Jon Huber in a press release. “The Habano version from NACSA was actually final and production ready back in the Spring of 2022, but we decided to hold it back. Ultimately, we felt so strongly about the Coroneta brand that we tapped the ‘Godfather of Boutique Cigars,’ aka Ernesto Perez-Carrillo, to partner with us on developing the maduro version. I think the Coroneta brand achieves what we excel at, which is, seamlessly blending tradition and history with premium modernity.”
