Crowned Heads is the latest company set to offer an exclusive cigar to attendees of the PCA 2021 Trade Show. Le Pâtissier translates to 'pastry chef' in French. The new brand got its inspiration from the Crowned Heads Le Carême line, which was inspired by French chef Marie-Antoine Careme.
"Well, I'm not really sure what to say here. This cigar gave me the creeps. The musty flavors and smell reminded me of my grandparent's basement. I remember being a kid and their eerie basement had the same mustiness this cigar did. I was always uncomfortable going down there alone, especially in the little room in the back. It was like something out of The Conjuring. No thank you. " -Doug S. (Unpossible_1)
"This was a very nice smoke. It didn't turn out to be the spice/pepper bomb that I expected based on its looks. I picked up lots of different flavors including floral, white pepper, creaminess, bubble gum, wood, and earth. I would definitely smoke this again, and would possibly consider a fiver. " -Mickey T.

"I really enjoyed this cigar. There were enough transitions to keep me engaged and I found the experience effortless which is hugely important to me. " -Alan (Eulogy)
"Solid mild to medium cigar. The spice and pepper on the front and end of the cigar were nice. With the middle, a tad more mild and less pepper and more earth and coffee it did not overwhelm you like som peppery cigar will to some people. This should be a cigar to try on many people's list.

Foundation Cigars has announced new house blend exclusively to Ligero Tobacco House in Buford, GA. The new cigar is called simply "Ligero Tobacco House" and comes in one size, a 6 ¼ x 46 Lonsdale. The blend uses a Habano Ecuador wrapper, San Andres Mexican binder, and filler from Esteli, Jalapa, and Ometepe.
"It is easy to say that this cigar was phenomenal. There are so many areas where a cigar this size could go wrong but when done right it can be transcended. This will be a box worthy cigar once I find out what it is. If you are a fan of a profile that is sweet and savory with some great spice that lingers, this will be the cigar for you. Enjoy." -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi)
"This was a great cigar. It was mild to medium in strength which gave me some nice cream mixed with floral and chocolate flavors with a hint of nuts here and there, but mostly on the finish. I would definitely smoke this again. " -Mickey T. (irratebass)
"This is surely a solid choice for anybody looking for a mild smoke with a great body. I think it was the body that impressed me the most. It really gives full body on the palate but the flavors are still fairly light as is the strength. This could easily be an "any time" cigar that I will enjoy again. " -Isaac M. (The Nothing)
