Crowned Heads has announced the upcoming release of a new limited edition version of its Court Reserve XVIII line. Called CHC Reserve XVIII Full Court Press LE 2019, this new release will be available in one vitola, a 5 7/8 x 52 box-pressed toro.
Crowned Heads’ original Court Reserve XVIII was released in 2018 during the 2018 International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailers Association (IPCPR) trade show. The blend for this new limited edition remains unchanged from the original, still using the same Mexican San Andres wrapper as the original, along with an Ecuadorian binder, and Nicaraguan filler. CHC Reserve XVIII Full Court Press LE 2019 will be rolled at E.P. Carrillo’s Tabacalera La Alianza, S.A., located in Santiago, Dominican Republic.
“The idea came to me last May during the NBA playoffs,” says Jon Huber, co-founder and owner of Crowned Heads. “Initially, I tossed the name out there somewhat as a corny double entendre, but the more I thought about it the more I liked the idea of releasing a box-pressed expression of CHC Reserve. Once I smoked the sample it was a no-brainer to go to production.”
