Cigar News: Crowned Heads Paniolo Especiale 2018 Soon to Release

In 2015, Crowned Heads released the Paniolo Especiale.  A cigar inspired by the blend from the Tennessee Waltz cigar, also a Crowned Heads release.  While 2015 was slated to be the only release of the Paniolo Especiale, the popularity of the product combined with the looming FDA nonsense has made it a perennial release to the R. Field Wine Co. in Hawaii.

For the 2018 Paniolo Especiale release, Jon Huber says “We wanted to get back a little closer to the roots of the 2015 OR.  I’d been a fan of the Super Corona vitola, and rather than simply release the 2015 Broadleaf blend in that size, we opted to riff on that original blend and utilize a San Andres wrapper which gave the flavor profile it’s own unique identity.”
