After a short delay, Las Calaveras Edición Limitada 2015 will begin shipping today.

As with the inaugural release last year, Las Calaveras Edición Limitada 2015 is a collaborative effort between Crowned Heads and My Father Cigars that is specifically inspired by La Calavera Catrina, a zinc etching by José Guadalupe Posada which is meant to not only honor those who have passed away in the previous year, but to also be a celebration of their lives. The new blend incorporates a habano rosado wrapper from Ecuador covering Nicaraguan tobacco for both the binder and filler, and was rolled at My Father Cigars S.A. in Estelí, Nicaragua.

While two of the three vitolas in the line are the same as last year’s release — a 5 x 50 robusto dubbed LC50 ($9.95) and a 6 x 52 toro known as LC52 ($10.95)— a  5 5/8 x 46 corona gorda named LC46 ($8.95) replaces the 7 x 54 churchill from 2014. Each of the three vitolas are limited to 1,250 boxes of 24 with cigars arranged in three rows of eight cigars inside the box.

Crowned Heads co-owner Jon Huber told halfwheel that the cigars will start shipping today and that they “hope to get it all out in the next 5-7 business days, if not sooner.”

I have been smoking cigars for over eight years. A documentary wedding photographer by trade, I spent seven years as a photojournalist for the Dallas Morning News and the Fort Worth Star Telegram. I started the cigar blog SmokingStogie in 2008 after realizing that there was a need for a cigar blog with better photographs and more in-depth information about each release. SmokingStogie quickly became one of the more influential cigar blogs on the internet, known for reviewing preproduction, prerelease, rare, extremely hard-to-find and expensive cigars. I am a co-founder of halfwheel and now serve as an editor for halfwheel.
