Next year, Crowned Heads will be add its sixth regular production line; next week, you might be able to smoke some.

That line is Las Mareas, Spanish for the tides. Jon Huber, co-owner of Crowned Heads, confirmed that seven different cigar shops would receive a single 20-count box of each of the four sizes: 6 1/8 x 46, 4 1/2 x 48, 5 1/2 x 52 and 6 x 54.

One of those shops is Underground Cigar Shop in Fort Worth, Texas, who—in a now deleted Facebook post—indicated that it would be a Nicaraguan puro using a corojo ’99 wrapper and made at My Father Cigars S.A.—something Crowned Heads confirmed to halfwheel.

Huber declined to elaborate on further specifics, but Brian McGee, the southwest sales representatives for Crowned Heads, posted that it would be released in “Summer of 2016.”

The cigars that are being shipped feature prerelease bands and boxes.

Crowned Heads filed for a trademark for Las Mareas in June.

I have been smoking cigars for over eight years. A documentary wedding photographer by trade, I spent seven years as a photojournalist for the Dallas Morning News and the Fort Worth Star Telegram. I started the cigar blog SmokingStogie in 2008 after realizing that there was a need for a cigar blog with better photographs and more in-depth information about each release. SmokingStogie quickly became one of the more influential cigar blogs on the internet, known for reviewing preproduction, prerelease, rare, extremely hard-to-find and expensive cigars. I am a co-founder of halfwheel and now serve as an editor for halfwheel.
