“We’re particularly excited about this year’s Las Calaveras releases as it marks a first for us in the series,” said Jon Huber, co-founder of Crowned Heads, in a press release. “In fact, this is the first time we’ve utilized a Sumatra wrapper leaf in any project originating from our partners at My Father Cigars, and I think the resulting profile is not only an obvious change of pace, but is also an amazing expression of Sumatra wrapper leaf.”
Las Calaveras is an annual limited edition for the company that pays tribute to those close to the company’s personnel who have lost their lives. The name comes from La Calavera Catrina, a zinc etching by José Guadalupe Posada.
