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. An additional 1,750 samplers were produced featuring one of each of the three vitolas, along with a sampler-exclusive petite lancero (measuring 6 1/2” x 40). 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.
