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 Vitolas

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.”
