“The darkest hour is just before the dawn.”
– Thomas Fuller
The Lost Angel 2021 by Crowned Heads is the prequel to The Angels Anvil (2014-19) TAA Exclusive series, and explores the darker side of the Angels Anvil story’s protagonist.
The original Angels Anvil story behind the brand centered around a wingless angel who befriends a blacksmith who then helps him create new wings. The story parallels Crowned Heads co-founder, Jon Huber’s, career in the cigar industry. Prior to the angel meeting the blacksmith, before he learns the secret to forging new wings to ascend by, the Angel first fell. Unlike the heavens above, the earth can be a dark space, and the spirit of The Lost Angel brand is born from that darkness. Though, we should never forget that the tiniest of seeds needs to first be submerged in dirt, covered in darkness, and it is only then that the seed will struggle to reach the light.
The Lost Angel 2021 is an exclusive release for TAA members that is limited to 1,000 (20-count) boxes. The 6” x 52 box-pressed cigar is comprised of a Brazilian (Mata Fina) binder, all Nicaraguan filler tobaccos, and is finished with a Mexican (San Andres) wrapper. The Lost Angel 2021 is manufactured at Tabacalera Pichardo in Esteli, Nicaragua, the factory that produces both the Juárez and Mil Días lines for Crowned Heads.
