Crowned Heads ha announced Las Calaveras EL 2018, which will serve as the fifth installment of the highly-sought after and eagerly anticipated annual release. Originally introduced in 2014, Las Calaveras was created as a tribute to those who have passed away in the previous year and is intended to be a celebration of lives and remembrances, rather than a mournful symbol of sadness and death. As with the previous four releases the EL 2018 was […]
Every from October 31 – November 2 in Mexico the country celebrates Dia de Muertos. The multi-day holiday focuses on gatherings of friends and family friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died, and help support their spiritual journey.

The Las Calaveras Edicion Limitada was perhaps the cigar of the year for limited editions last year. As a result, the EL 2015 is highly sought after and will be neck and neck with the Tatuaje M80 rerelease for the top limited edition release for 2015. The cigar was so popular that many retailers had their initial orders cut in order to fulfill the demand across the board. This year some things have changed. The […]

Las Calaveras from Crowned Heads comes out of the My Father factory in Esteli, Nicaragua and is limited to 1,000 boxes per size of which there […]
