Crowned Heads has announced they will debut CHC (Crowned Heads Court) Serie E at the upcoming 2021 PCA Convention & Trade Show to be held in Las Vegas, July 9-13.
The CHC Serie E blend was inspired by the instrumental rock guitar solo, “Eruption,” performed by Eddie Van Halen, from the album, “Van Halen” released on February 10, 1978.
“I listened to that solo and saw it as a sonic metaphor for smoking this cigar,” explained Crowned Heads co-founder, Jon Huber. “From the drum and bass intro, which I saw as the cutting lighting-prep of the cigar, to the mixing of triads and harmonics which I compared to the complexity of the flavor profile, to the bottoming-out dive bombs that was reminiscent of the finish of the cigar, it all paralleled seamlessly. The CHC Serie E smoking experience is a medium-plus-bodied dance on the edge between technical mastery and random entropy, resolving in a balanced, melodious harmony.”
