Crowned Heads is pleased to present the Le Careme Belicosos Finos LE 2018.
This Limited Edition is dedicated to the Le Careme brand, and was inspired by the iconic Belicosos Fino (5 1/2 x 52) vitola. Unlike the regular production Le Careme brand which is trunk-pressed, the Belicosos Fino LE 2018 retains the round format for which the vitola is best known for via the Bolivar (CUBA) Belicosos Finos.
“Last year, Miguel Schoedel (Crowned Heads’ National Sales Manager} presented the concept to us,” said Crowned Heads co-founder, Jon Huber. “The Bolivar Belicosos 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 Careme blend added a whole next-level dimension of richness and flavor to an already exquisite blend.”
The blend is comprised of a Sumatra (Ecuador) binder, Nicaraguan filler tobaccos, and is finished with a Grade A Dark Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper. Production is limited to 1,500 (12-count) boxes, i.e., a total production of 18,000 cigars. The suggested retail pricing will be $10 per cigar, $120 per box. Shipping will begin in March 2018.
Le Careme Belicosos Finos LE 2018 will be manufactured at Tabacalera La Alianza, S.A., Santiago, Dominican Republic.
