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 seen as a celebration of life and remembrance, rather than a mournful symbol of sadness and death.
The 2018 Las Calaveras release was heavily inspired by the vibrant colors of the Dia de los Muertos holiday. The blend is a robust combination of Nicaraguan binder and filler tobaccos, finished with a well-aged Mexican San Andres maduro wrapper.
A total of 5,100 boxes (122,400 cigars) of Las Calaveras EL 2018 were produced at the My Father Cigars, S.A. factory, in Esteli, Nicaragua. An additional 12,000 cigars were produced to be included in the Las Calaveras EL 2018 Sampler. The sampler features one of each of the 3 EL 2018 vitolas, along with a sampler-exclusive 5 1/2 x 56 Robusto Extra. Each 24-count box of Las Calaveras is packaged with 3 rows of 8 cigars. The 3 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. Coming June 2018.
