"The Lonsdale vitola is quickly becoming one of my favorite sizes. The flavors seem to really pop in this format. The flavors in this cigar were impressive and there were enough transitions to keep me interested. This is definitely a cigar I'd try again. Thanks for the opportunity. " -Kevin J. (maninblack77

"This cigar was a most excellent after dinner cigar. It embodied almost exactly what you'd want from a dessert cigar. No I'm not talking about that artificial sweetness you get from flavored cigars, but instead I'm talking about the richness and perfect body that hits just right. On top of that, it is so well made that I found myself admiring it while smoking it. Definitely the highlight of my day and would not be opposed to picking up more." -Doug S. (Unpossible_1)
ACE Prime has announced a new cigar in the Luciano line to be shown off at the PCA 2021 Trade Show. This is the first regular production cigar in the Luciano line and follows the limited production Dreamer and Traveler. This new iteration comes in 4 sizes. "Fiat Lux" is a Latin expression used during the intellectual movement of the Enlightenment and represents the search for knowledge and meaning. The company says "Fiat Lux itself is a blend that generates deliberation. The construction of the cigar provokes an inevitable exploration of flavors as it ignites the taste buds for the sake of discovery. Enlightenment is a natural, mindful consequence of its physical attributes."
Crowned Heads is releasing its eighth version of the Las Calaveras series, Las Calaveras EL 2021. For the first time, the blend will feature an Ecuadorian Sumatra Oscuro wrapper. The rest of the blend uses Nicaraguan binder and fillers.
"While it's been many years since I've had a steak that required smothering in a creamy peppercorn sauce, this cigar certainly invoked those same flavors. There were times, though, that pepper cream was overwhelming the other flavors. While an enjoyable cigar, I don't think it would be would I would frequent regularly. " -Isaac M. (The Nothing)
Crowned Heads is bringing a new line to PCA 2021 "CHC (Crowned Heads Court) Serie E." The original CHC Reserve line was released in 2018. The CHC Series E, like many other Crowned Heads releases, got its inspiration from a song. In this case, the instrumental rock guitar solo, "Eruption," performed by Eddie Van Halen, from the album, "Van Halen" released on February 10, 1978. The song precedes "You Really Got Me" on the album and is often played together on the radio.
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.
Last year, Crowned Heads released the Four Kicks Capa Especial, a blend that was one of the final contenders for the original Four Kicks, but didn't make the original cut. Now that blend is coming in a new limited figurado vitola for 2021, Águilas. The Águilas viotla goes back to the Cuban Romeo y Julieta Águilas in the 1960's that was later discontinued in the 1970's. "Águila" translates to Eagle in English.
