There’s a new limited edition version of the Le Carême heading to stores next month.
The Le Carême Belicosos Finos is based on the most famous cigar with that said name, the Cuban Bolívar Belicosos Finos.
“Last year, Miguel Schoedel, Crowned Heads national sales manager, presented the concept to us,” said Jon Huber, Crowned Heads co-founder, in a press release. “The Bolívar Belicosos Finos has always been one of my ‘desert-island’ cigars, so we began to work on the project with Ernesto Perez-Carrillo Jr., and the end result was very impressive. The vitola in the Le Carême blend added a whole next-level dimension of richness and flavor to an already exquisite blend.”
While the cigar uses the same blend as the regular production Le Carême—a Connecticut broadleaf wrapper over an Ecuadorian Sumatra binder and Nicaraguan fillers—it is round, as opposed to trunk-pressed like the rest of the cigars.
The regular Le Carême was introduced in 2016. It is named after the famed French chef Marie Antoine Carême.
Production is limited to 1,500 boxes of 12 cigars and it is priced at $10 per cigar.
