Ferio Tego unveiled its first regular production line, the Ferio Tego Summa, at the PCA trade show. The Summa blend utilizes tobaccos from three countries and is noted for its balance and intensity of body and flavor.
The Crowned Heads PCA 2023 Exclusive Le Pâtissier No. 2 is a classic torpedo vitola that measures 6 1/8" x 52. The blend uses the same "broadleaf-based blend" as the rest of the Le Pâtissier line, just in a new size.
"Overall, this was an enjoyable cigar with very mild flavors, it remained medium bodied and light throughout the experience. The smoke started off fairly creamy and dried out throughout the cigar but never to a point of dislike. I would definitely recommend this to individuals with a lighter palette and would consider smoking again for sure. It would go well with any light flavor drink from clear soft drinks to lager beers and white wines." -Angel M. (Angel)
"Overall, this was a good cigar I felt medium to full-bodied, you definitely want to eat something before you tackle this stick. I prefer a creamier smoke and this one was a bit dry but not enough to be a deterrent. I would definitely smoke this cigar again maybe ending it a little sooner before the harshness took over. All the way through the first, second, and about the middle of the final third the flavors remained fairly consistent with small background changes. For me, the leather, dark chocolate, and cedar dominated regularly throughout the smoke. For me, this will definitely be an evening cigar maybe with an iced coffee to balance out the bit of dryness. Overall, a good cigar and I would definitely smoke it again. " -Angel M. (Angel)
"I was very excited to smoke this prelight since it looked great with the torpedo cap and perfect construction. The flavors fell a bit flat for me, though. It just doesn't oomph to match the uptick in nicotine around the halfway point and I'm more of a flavor over strength person. It isn't bad but it just doesn't do anything for me personally. " -Alan (Eulogy)
"This was a delightful cigar. The flavors are great and transitions, though slight, were appreciated and helped continue interest in the cigar. For the size of surprised at how quickly it burned. This is a cigar I can easily enjoy on a regular basis." -Isaac M. (The Nothing)
"A surprisingly good cigar. With notes of grassy flavor, I imagined the sunshine on my face and the carefree days of my youth. The hints of red pepper added a layer of excitement to the smoke and prevented a monotonous flavor experience." -Jai P. (Jai)
"I know that Belicoso, Torpedo, and Pyramid don’t get much love from the general cigar public but I love them. They always seem to showcase amazing flavor profiles. This cigar was so flavorful and checked every box for me. I highly recommend it to anyone that is seeking a cigar that showcases every aspect of cigar making. I will most definitely seek it out, when the review is published, and add it to my smoking rotation." -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi)
"I was quite pleased with this cigar. Visually it was striking, while construction held up just as well as the looks. Then you take in the profile it offers and I really don't have much to complain about here. Who doesn't love a bit of sweetness in their cigar? Add in some citrus and twang and now I'm a happy camper. Have I ever mentioned that I enjoy a good box-press? Well I do and so should you....check out this cigar that is." -Doug S. (Unpossible_1)
"Another great cigar that made me want another. Excellent notes of cedar, cherry, tea, peanut, and black pepper. A nice strong ash, even burn, and perfect draw made this a cigar I'd seek out. Great quick morning or late afternoon cigar." -Sean F. (fullermaine)
