Crowned Heads has announced the return of the Le Carême Belicosos Finos, releasing it in a Limited Edition 2021 format. Originally released in 2018, the Le Carême Belicosos Finos immediately became a cigar enthusiast favorite, culminating in high industry ratings and accolades, including Halfwheel’s ‘Cigar of the Year 2018’ Runner-Up award in 2019. The vitola would re-appear in 2019, also in a Limited Edition format. Two years later, the Le Carême Belicosos Finos is back.
Unlike the regular production Le Carême brand, which is trunk-pressed, the 5 1/2″ x 52 Belicosos Finos LE 2021 retains the same round format as it’s 2018 and 2019 predecessors.
“Despite the fact that we were completely out of stock on all Le Carême cigars in 2020 due to a shortage on Connecticut Broadleaf (wrapper) tobacco, we still continue to receive weekly inquiries on the Le Carême line,” commented Crowned Heads co-founder, Jon Huber. “We’re extremely excited to be bringing back not only the Belicosos Finos, but the Le Carême brand as well, into the retail spotlight.”
The blend is comprised of an Ecuadorian Sumatra binder, Nicaraguan filler tobaccos, and is finished with a Grade A Dark Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper. Production is limited to 1,000 (12-count) boxes, i.e., a total production of 12,000 cigars. The suggested retail price for Le Carême Belicosos Finos LE 2021 is $11.00 per cigar, and $132.00 per box.
Le Carême Belicosos Fines LE 2021 is manufactured at Tabacalera La Alianza, S.A., Santiago, Dominican Republic, under the supervision of premium cigar industry icon, Ernesto Perez-Carrillo.
