This is the SAME great Cigar, just packaged in the Green Plain Liberal Packaging with the ORIGINAL CIGAR BAND underneath.
Size: Robusto 5" x 50
Binder: Ecuadorian Sumatra
Wrapper: Connecticut Broadleaf
Country: Dominican Republic
The Le Carême’s wrapper is dark, and quite oily to the touch.
The wrapper has a strong earth note that leads the pack, with rich fruit, nuts and cocoa following behind. The cold draw starts out with huge notes of chocolate, nuts, dried fruits and an odd touch of salty ocean air in the background.
Review from HalfWheel:
"If Crowned Heads was going for a cigar that tasted like a sweet dessert, it certainly did quite a good job at doing just that. The first third doesn’t have quite as much of a dessert quality as the second, with the middle of the cigar really peaking with a sweet, creamy chocolate dessert-like profile."
