Cigar News: ACE Prime and Crowned Heads Announce the Pichardo-Maduro

ACE Prime and Crowned Heads announced the launch of the Pichardo Maduro today. The story of this cigar draws on the life and experience of its namesake – Don. Eradio Pichardo.

A fourth-generation tobacconist and heir to more than a century and a half of knowledge in the world of tobacco, Don Pichardo worked for Habanos SA (Cuba) for many years and became known as being responsible for the Partagas Blends such as Series E, and D.

After leaving Cuba, he established himself in Nicaragua in 2005 and then became the co-founding partner of Tabacalera Pichardo, together with Luciano Meirelles.
