Paniolo Especiale 2020

In a press release today, Crowned Heads co-owner/founder, Jon Huber noted:

“It’s always a kick to work with Willy (Herrera) and the Drew Estate crew. We began the blending process on Paniolo 2020 last Summer immediately after the PCA show. Last years blend, which featured a Broadleaf wrapper was a hit and we wanted to riff off that, so ‘Chef Herrera’ sprinkled in a dash of Brazilian Mata Fina in the filler.

The end result is a flavor profile that that is rich, balanced, and layered while retaining that muscular structure and intensity that the (Paniolo) 2015 OR and last year’s release have become renowned for.”

If you wish to attend the roll out event you can contact Marvin Chang to purchase ticket at machang@foodland.com, or call (808) 949-2998.
