On the heels of the popular Ohio state exclusive, “Buckeye Land,” Crowned Heads has once again partnered with Drew Estate to produce the annual Crowned Heads Hawaii state exclusive, “Paniolo Especiale 2019.”
Manufactured at La Gran Fabrica Drew Estate in Esteli, Nicaragua, the Paniolo 2019 is a 5 1/2 x 48 parejo cigar. The blend is comprised of a Mexican (San Andres) binder, fillers from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua, and the ‘star of the show’ is a dark, rich, Connecticut (Broadleaf) wrapper.
“We’re extremely excited for this year’s Paniolo Especiale as it will mark the first time we’ve utilized a Connecticut (Broadleaf) wrapper on this annual Hawaii-Exclusive release since the inaugural edition back in 2015,” commented Crowned Heads co-owner/founder, Jon Huber. “Insofar as the Paniolo marca is concerned, I feel as though the 2015 OR has held up as the ‘grail’ blend, and both R. Field Wine and Crowned Heads really wanted to bring the Broadleaf back. While the blend is entirely different than the 2015, I sincerely feel that smokers will find that this year’s rendition stacks up very nicely against the 2015. This is truly an exceptional smoke.” The Paniolo Especiale 2019 will be packaged in 12-count packs and have an MSRP of $9.80 per cigar. The total production will be 5,000 cigars.
The Paniolo Especiale 2019 will make it’s debut on February 8, 2019 (6:00-9:30pm), at an exclusive dinner event hosted by R. Field Wine at the Prince Waikiki Hotel. Seating is limited. Please contact Marvin Chang to purchase tickets at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call (808) 596-9463.
