Crowed Heads is a brand that doesn’t do it like everyone else, nor do they plan to. They believe in continuous improvement and in a marriage of tradition with innovation. According to them: “Crowned Heads is influenced by a time when quality, pride, and integrity mattered. We strive to bring our vision to reality and invite you to live in our world. We are not here to do it like everyone else. When the rules don’t make sense to us, we carve our own path.” With their strict attention to detail, the path they carved is a path you will want to follow.
The Crowned Heads Mil Días is named after the 1,000 days it took to create. Yes, that’s right, it took 1,000 days to complete this smoke and it’s well worth the wait! This Cigar Aficionado 91-rated smoke was hand-rolled in Nicaragua and starts with fillers from Peru, Costa Rica, and Nicaragua that are secured with a Nicaraguan binder, and finished with a handsome Ecuadorian Habano wrapper leaf. Medium to full in body, this smoke offers creamy notes of graham cracker and cocoa, and finishes with natural sweetness and pepper. Pair this smoke with a Moscow Mule on a warm summer day!
The Nicaraguan cigar industry originated when Cuban cigar makers escaped the revolution and re-established their livelihood in Nicaragua with Cuban-seed tobacco. Blessed with dark, rich soil, their new home was ideal for tobacco cultivation and Nicaragua quickly became known for cigars that rivaled Cuban quality. Unfortunately, revolution and war came to Nicaragua in the 1980s and devastated the industry, but it’s rebounded dramatically and is once again producing tobacco considered by many to be the finest in the world.
The Esteli Valley is in many ways the heart of Nicaraguan production and is known for its very powerful and spicy tobacco. The Jalapa Valley produces arguably the finest tobacco in the country: somewhat sweeter and less intense than Esteli, but extremely complex. The tobacco of the Condega Valley is often described as a blend of the other two regions.
