Crowned Heads is bringing back their limited edition version of the Le Carême blend this year. Originally released in 2018, and making a limited edition comeback in 2021, the cigar is now back in its same 5 1/2" x 52 format. While the regular production line of Le Carême is trunk-pressed, the Belicosos Finos are round.
"Anxiously awaiting the reveal on this one. The flavors were right up my alley, and performance was strong. I'd smoke this one again anytime." -Dave (mdwest)
"Flavor profile notwithstanding, this was a smooth and easy smoke. If you're a fan of floral cigars, with a simple expression that you don't have to think a lot about, this could make a nice Sunday morning cigar with a cup of tea and a good book. But it's a miss for me." -Vance T. (Vance)
Southern Draw is offering a new cigar in honor or Veterans and decades-long military service in Augusta, Georgia, the Firethorn - Augusta. The new iteration of the Firethorn features a new logo and blend. The new logo was designed byt Arizona-based JMG Graphic Works.

"Overall, the cigar was good. I would have preferred a bit more spice to go along with the other flavors. I would be interested to see what this cigar is and smoke it again to see how it smokes." -Wes (SosaCub4Life)

"I really liked this cigar. It was a great middle of the day smoke, not too strong, not too weak. It reminded me of the Sun Grown Perdomo Champagne. There was lots of flavor, but not too much spice, until the end, when it needed it. I would definitely smoke this again, and might buy a few to age." -Emmett (rhetorik)

"Overall, the cigar was a good and pleasant smoke. There was enough complexity to keep the interest even though it would have been better if it had maintained the complexity of the initial third. Definitely will smoke again." -Sandeep (Djangos)

"Even though there were some minor burn issues and the cigar started out with a bit of a tight draw, it was absolutely great to smoke. The flavors were simply outstanding. Perfectly melded together, with nice subtle transitions in the profile every couple of inches into the smoke. I'm ready to see the reveal on this one so I can go out and buy a box!" -Dave (mdwest)
"Excellent cigar! This cigar is definitely one that is within my wheelhouse. A cigar that is focused on flavor over strength is always a win for me. Also, a cigar (such as this) that builds flavors throughout the entire smoking experience keeps things interesting and engaging. I will buy a fiver or tener with no hesitation." -Jiunn (jliu)
