The 5 1/2 x 52 belicoso was originally released last year as a limited edition and it returns with mostly the same details as the original. It uses the same blend as the regular production Le Carême—a Connecticut broadleaf wrapper over an Ecuadorian Sumatran binder and Nicaraguan fillers—however, it is round instead of box-pressed like the other vitolas.
Pricing remains $10 per cigar, the same as last year, but production has been increased from 1,500 boxes of 12 to 2,500 boxes of 12. The new version also receives a foot band.
The Le Carême Belicosos Finos 2018 LE finished second on halfwheel’s Top 25 for 2018.
