Crowned Heads has announced a limited edition version of its new Mil Días brand – Mil Días Mareva EL XX (2020). This new cigar uses the same blend as the original but comes in a new size, the traditional Cuban Mareva vitola (5 1/8″ x 42), a corona Only 1000 cabinets of 30 will be made. The Mil Días Mareva EL XX will cost $8.95 per cigar, and is rolled at Tabacalera Pichardo in Esteli, Nicaragua, under the supervision of Don Eradio Pichardo. Mil Días Mareva EL XX will ship November.
“The seed for a mareva-sized cigar was planted for me last year when our National Sales Manager, Miguel Schoedel, gifted me with a Romeo y Julieta Cedros de Luxe No. 3 (Cuba),” commented Crowned Heads co-founder/owner, Jon Huber. “For my palate, that cigar exhibited so much depth and complexity with impeccable balance while in a smaller-cigar format; it still stands out in my sensory memory. We began work on a Mil Dias Mareva even before we began shipping the first Mil Dias boxes, as I knew in my gut that this blend would translate brilliantly in a Mareva vitola.”
The Mil Dias line comes in four other sizes and the blend uses an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, Nicaraguan binder, filler tobaccos from
Nicaragua, Peru, and Costa Rica.
