The first collaborative project between Crowned Heads and My Father Cigars, a cigar called Las Calaveras that is dedicated to the memory of those who have passed away in the previous year, has begun shipping to retailers.
Jon Huber of Crowned Heads posted a video to the company’s website today making the announcement. He mentioned that a Las Calaveras t-shirt and hat have also been released via the company’s online store.
Las Calaveras was announced in February 2014 as a new limited edition line of annually released cigars. The inaugural release, called Las Calaveras Edición Limitada 2014, comes in three sizes, a 5 x 50 robusto, 6 x 52 toro and 7 x 54 Churchill. Each size is being limited to 1,000 boxes of 24 cigars, for a total run of 72,000 sticks, with prices expected to be between $8.00 – $12.00 per cigar. The blend uses Nicaraguan leaves for the filler and an Ecuadoran Havana leaf for the wrapper.
The cigars are being produced at the My Father Cigars factory in Estelí, Nicaragua.
