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. Both blends use a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper, but the binder and fillers differ.
When we were approached to do a PCA 2021 exclusive we wanted to bring something special to the show. Patissier is an amazing expression of Connecticut Broadleaf that exudes a unique combination of complexity, finesse and balance. We’ve produced broadleaf-based blends with three other factories to this point; however, Patissier brings a different dimension to the profile that makes it stand on its own.”

It come in 20-count cabinets boxes and each cigar sells for $10.50. Le Pâtissier is rolled at Tabacalera Pichardo in Esteli, Nicaragua, that also makes the Crowned Heads lines Juarez, and Mil Días.
