Crowned Heads Announces New Las Calaveras LE 2023
Crowned Heads is proud to announce its tenth installment to the highly sought-after Las Calaveras series, Las Calaveras EL2023.
For the first time since 2016, and only the second time in the series, the 2023 Las Calaveras will feature a Grade A Dark Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper. "We're bringing the Broadleaf back for '23," commented an excited Crowned Heads co-founder, Jon Huber. "I've held My Father Cigars and the Garcia family in such high regard, especially when it came to their use of Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper and the resultant blend expressions. The 2023 Las Calaveras blend has so much going on in terms of what you'd expect from a My Father Broadleaf blend, everything from pepper to chocolate to earth, all impeccably and consistently balanced. We're also featuring a first in the 2023 Las Calaveras Sampler, as this will be the first time we've featured a Belcoso Fino as the Sampler-exclusive viola, and the first time we've produced that vitola with My Father Cigars."
Introduced in 2014, Las Calaveras began as a tribute to those who have passed on in the previous year, and is intended to be a celebration of life and remembrance, as opposed to a mournful symbol of death or loss. Each year, the Las Calaveras band is adorned with the initials of four individuals who've passed the prior year, one set of initials embossed upon each of the four coins on the sides of each band. Cigars are presented in 24-count boxes, three rows of eight cigars each, as the number '8' is a symbol of infinity as in everlasting life, while the three rows represent the beginning, middle, and end of the cycle of life.
A total of 1,500 boxes of each of the three vitolas (108,000 cigars) was produced with an additional 3,000 four-cigar samplers featuring one of each vitola along with a sampler exclusive BelicosoFino (5 1/2" x 52). Las Calaveras EL 2023 will have a suggested retail price range of $12.95 to $14.95 per cigar, including LC50 (5" x50), LC52 (6" x52), andLC54 (5 5/8" ×54).
The Las Calaveras EL 2023 Sampler will have a suggested retail price of $54.95. Las Calaveras EL 2023 is manufactured at My Father Cigars in Esteli, Nicaragua, and wil begin shipping in June.
