Las Calaveras is the highly anticipated annual Crowned Heads release that began in 2014, and pays a respectful homage to those who have passed away in the previous year. It is our intent that Las Calaveras will be perceived as a celebration of life and memory, rather than a mournful symbol of death and loss.
The Las Calaveras EL 2021 marks the first time that the blend will feature an Ecuadorian Sumatra (Oscuro) wrapper; in fact, this will be the first time that a Crowned Heads cigar manufactured by My Father Cigars will feature a Sumatra wrapper. The result is a taste profile that is extremely unique and ground-breaking to the Las Calaveras series.
The dark-chocolate Sumatra oscuro wrapper completes a blend of Nicaraguan binder and filler tobaccos, and provides a flavor profile that is characterized by notes of earth, spice, and espresso beans, with subtle floral undertones.
A total of 1,250 boxes of each of the three vitolas (90,000 cigars) of Las Calaveras EL 2021 were produced at My Father Cigars, S.A. factory in Esteli, Nicaragua. Each 24-count box of Las Calaveras is packaged with three rows of eight cigars. The three rows represent life’s cycle of a beginning, middle, and end. In biblical terms, the number ‘8’ signifies new beginnings, and in mathematical terms an ‘8’ laid on its side symbolizes “infinity,” as in eternal life.
