Crowned Heads Las Calaveras 2015 LC50

Introduced in 2014, Crowned Heads released the Las Calaveras to honor loved ones that passed away that year.  Released each year in a new blend, this year has a Ecuadorian Habano Rosado wrapper with a Nicaraguan binder and filler.  The 2015 Las Calaveras has been released in three sizes this year instead of the two in 2014.

  • LC46:  5 5/8 x 46
  • LC50:  5 x 50
  • LC52:  6 x 52

The cigar starts off with a strong cedar note with earth, black cherry and raw sugar sweetness.  As the cigar burns down, it really develops a more complex flavor profile as some cinnamon spice enters and the sweetness turns into a nice mocha flavor.  Nearing the end, the cedar note gets stronger, but is kept in check with the sweet mocha flavor and cinnamon.  I prefer the LC46 in this blend though, as it has a stronger sweet mocha note and a little more savory spice note.  Overall, this is an outstanding cigar.  The cigar is well balanced with rich flavors and a medium-full body.  Its a steal for only $10.00.  They are only available in a very limited supply so I wouldn’t wait to pick some up.  Once they are gone, they are gone until next year’s release.  You don’t want to miss out on these.
