Crowned Heads next month will ship a new regular production release, Mil Días Maduro, in partnership with the TacaNicsa factory in Esteli, Nicaragua, home to the original Mil Días brand.
Mil Días Maduro will be available as a 5 ⅜ x 52 Edmundo, 6 x 54 Sublime, and 4 /78/x 56 Tapes. Price ranges from $10.95 to $12.50. The blend features a Grade A Dark Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper, Habano binder, and all Nicaraguan filler tobaccos from three regions (Viso Jalapa, Ligero Condega, and Seco Ometepe).
“Mil Días Maduro is an extension to the original Mil Días brand that we announced back in July of 2020,” Crowned Heads co-founder Jon Huber said in a press release. “What’s important to note, however, is that the Maduro blend is not simply a retread of the original blend where we just swapped the wrapper leaf out. Mil Días Maduro is an all-new blend from the outside to the inside that we felt was worthy of bearing the Mil Días brand name. We began working on the Mil Días Maduro blend with Eradio Pichardo in the summer of 2023. The result is a cigar with a flavor profile that is dense and lush, layered with notes of dark chocolate, baking spices, with excellent structure and a pepper component that is most noticeable on the retro-hale.”
Mil Días Maduro will make its debut at the Total Product Expo trade show on January 31-February 2 in Las Vegas.
