In September, Crowned Heads attempted to quietly ship seven of its retailers a preview of its newest cigar: Las Mareas.
Now, there’s a second preview planned for later this month with 1,000 boxes between two of the four sizes being shipped to retailers on a much wider scale. The company will ship 500 boxes each of the Olas (6 1/8 x 46, $9) and Rebeldes (5 1/2 x 52, $9.75) size in late November.
Las Mareas, Spanish for the tides, is the company’s newest regular production line to be made by the García family at My Father Cigars S.A. It’s a Nicaraguan puro using tobacco grown by the family.
In addition to those two sizes, Las Mareas can also be found in a 4 1/2 x 48 vitola and a 6 x 54 toro extra.
Crowned Heads says the cigar will be available for full release in “summer 2016.”
