Yesterday, Jon Huber tweeted yet another picture of a prototype of a cigar for 2015, but this time it was a bit clearer what was coming. The Crowned Heads co-founder tweeted a picture of a new size of the company’s J.D. Howard Reserve in what appears to be a thinner size with a pigtail.

Huber declined to talk details about the extension.

J.D. Howard Reserve was introduced in 2013, the company’s third regular production line. It uses a Brazilian Arapiraca wrapper over an Ecuadorian Sumatra binder and fillers from Nicaragua. J.D. Howard Reserve is made at Ernesto Perez-Carrillo Jr.’s Tabacalera La Alianza S.A. factory in the Dominican Republic and is currently offered in five sizes.

In addition to the J.D. Howard Extension, Huber has also indicated the company is in the process of finalizing Las Calaveras 2015 and there’s a project related to Hawaii.
