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.
