Crowned Heads announced today, that it will debut “CHG (Crowned Heads Court) Serie E” at the upcoming 2021 PCA Convention & Trade Show to be held in Las Vegas, July 9-13.
The CHG Serie E blend was sonically inspired by the instrumental rock guitar solo, “Eruption,” performed by Eddie Van Halen, from the album, “Van Halen” released on February 10, 1978.
As Crowned Heads co-founder, Jon Huber explains:
“I listened to that solo and saw it as a sonic metaphor for smoking this cigar. From the drum and bass intro, which I saw as the cutting lighting-prep of the cigar, to the mixing of triads and harmonics which I compared to the complexity of the flavor profile, to the bottoming-out dive bombs that was reminiscent of the finish of the cigar, it all paralleled seamlessly. The CHG Serie E smoking experience is a medium-plus-bodied dance on the edge between technical mastery and random entropy, resolving in a balanced, melodious harmony.”
CHG Serie E has a blend described as:
- Wrapper – Ecuadorian (Habano Oscuro)
- Binder – Nicaraguan binder (Jalapa)
- Filler – Nicaragua (Pueblo Nuevo, Ometepe, and Jalapa)
The CHG Serie E is manufactured at Tabacalera Pichardo in Esteli, Nicaragua, the factory behind other Crowned Heads brands including Juarez, Mil Dias, and The Lost Angel TAA 2021 Exclusive.
CHG Serie E will be packaged in 20-count boxes, and will be available in four vitolas:
- Hermoso No. 2: 6 1/8″ x 48
- 5150: 5 1/2″ x 50
- Petite Edmundo: 4 3/8″ x 52
- Sublime: 6 1/2″ x 54
The retail price range will be $10.25 to $12.25 per cigar, and the new line will begin shipping August 2021.
