Crowned Heads is excited to announce that their annual Hawaii-exclusive cigar, "Paniolo Especiale," will debut on October 7, at a special VIPDinner Event hosted by Marvin Chang and R. Field Wine Co.

The Paniolo Especiale 2023 is a 5 1/2 x 52 robusto extra cigar, manufactured at TacaNisa in Esteli, Nicaragua, makers of such Crowned Headscigarsa sMil Días, Juárez, and Blood Medicine. The blend features a Connecticut (Broadleaf wrapper, Ecuador (Habano) binder, and filler tobaccos from three different regions of Nicaragua (Jalapa, Condega, and Ometepe). As with previous releases, the cigars will be packaged in 10-count boxes, with a total production limited to 500 boxes (5,000 total cigars), and will carry a suggested retail price of $11.50 per cigar.

"The Paniolo2023 is a banger--full stop,"commented Crowned Heads co-founder,Jon Huber. "I asked Eradio (Pichardo) and TacaNicsa for a 'high-octane' Broadleaf blend, and they delivered in spades. Thecigar opens 'big' and just goes from there; there's no let-up withthis cigar, and Ithink fans of heavier, medium-to-fullbodied smokes are infor a treat. That being said, what impressed me the most with this blend is that despite its intensity, the cigar retains balance and complexity. It's got the expected pepper, leather, and earth, but it also has a subtle sweetness from the Jalapa (viso) in the filler; it's definitely not a one-note composition."
