It’s been a bit of a hot-button topic among fans of the brand, but Crowned Heads’ feature release at this year’s show is La Imperiosa, a new regular production line that is the same blend as the Las Calaveras Edición Limitada 2014.

The artwork comes from an old Cuban brand, which was also on display in the booth:

There will be four different violas at launch, all sold in boxes of 24: Corona Gorda (5 3/4 x 46), Magicos (4 1/2 x 52), Double Robusto (6 3/8 x 50) and Dukes (5 1/2 x 54), with prices in the $8-10 range. There will also be a sampler of the four sizes available for $29.99, all of which should begin shipping in the last week of July.

Jericho Hill is getting a new vitola as well, the 5 x 56 Jack Brown, which will sell for $9.55 before taxes and should be on its way to stores by the end of July as well.

And of course, there are hats:

Beyond that, there are a few other things coming from Crowned Heads this year, though Huber wouldn’t say much beyond that.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
