Crowned Heads has a new event-only cigar on the way, a 5 1/2 x 48 super corona that is being called Snake Oil. The company has recently been featuring it on its social media accounts.

Jon Huber told halfwheel that the cigar is being made at My Father Cigars S.A. in Estelí, Nicaragua, and uses Nicaraguan binder and filler with an Ecuadorian habano wrapper. He added that the initial run will be 6,000 cigars and that it will be an ongoing production.
Details of how customers will be able to get the cigars are still being finalized, with Huber saying that Snake Oil will be part of a “free with purchase” program at events and not available for sale as a stand-alone item. He indicated that the packaging will most likely be simple, suggesting there cigars in a slider bag with info card inside, but didn’t commit to that specific idea.
