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 Crowned Heads’ intent that Las Calaveras will be seen as a celebration of life and remembrance, rather than a mournful symbol of sadness and death.
For the first time since the inaugural release in 2014, the 2019 Las Calaveras pays tribute to one individual only (as opposed to the traditional four of years past). The initials “CO” emblazoned on the gold coins of each cigar band honor Cano Ozgener (CAO Founder), as we celebrate his amazing life and the legacy he left behind.
The blend is an intense combination of Nicaraguan binder and filler tobaccos, finished with a sumptuous dark Colorado-brown Habano Oscuro wrapper. A total of 5,100 boxes (122,400 cigars) of Las Calaveras EL 2019 were produced at the 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.
