LAS CALAVERAS 2021 BY CROWNED HEADS

This is the first Las Calaveras to feature an Oscuro wrapper, which is a bit on the rugged side of smooth. The foot has leathery aromas. The cold draw is perfect with earthy flavors. Tonight’s beverage is a Viva Los Muertos, a black Mexican lager with light spicy notes.



The initial flavors are a bold earthy base over a thick spicy bodied smoke. The early retohale is quite peppery. The ash is mostly light grey and the burn is even.



In the first third a light cherry note emerges in the medium to full body smoke while the spices moderate. The as appears to be fairly solid. The burn remains even.



During the second third the ash fell onto my shirt in a solid chunk, so still fairly solid, but not quite firm enough. The flavor profile remains steady and complex. The burn remains even. The beer is pairing well with the cigar.



Approaching the final inch the flavor profile remains very good; an earthy base with a blend of spices and cherry notes. The ash remains fairly solid, gaining in length since it dropped off earlier. The burn remains even.



Overall a very good medium to full bodied smoke. The sweetness of the Oscuro wrapper holds well with the earthy, spicy filler. The construction is excellent. The complexity is excellent as well. 9.6/10, Joe Bob says check it out.

Very nice review.

May steal your idea of including pics as its at different stages of being smoked.

Adds a little flair.

Just kidding, lol.

Wouldn't work with my review style since I dont break them down into thirds, as i don't focus my attention mainly on the taste.

Will have to buy a couple as i enjoy an earthy cigar very much. Tied with woody as my favorite flavor in a cigar.

The other years I have had (2016 and 2019 I believe) were great, as was every other CH I have had, so I suspect this one will be too
