Le souffle is served
Under the supervision of E.P. Carillo, Crowned Heads cigars have been making small batch cigars committed to a combination of excellent flavor, balance and consistency. Inspired by a time when quality, pride and integrity mattered, Crowned Heads believes in a strict attention to detail. They may have gotten a late start in the premium cigar industry just a few years back but they have already proven what they are committed to with a handful of top rated boutique blends. The first of their cigar lines to be inspired by food, La Careme is named after Marie Antoine Careme, a pioneer in French cuisine, who is known for popularizing the soufflé.
Produced in the Dominican Republic, Le Careme is wrapped in a dark, oily Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper with an Ecuadorian Sumatra binder and Nicaraguan fillers. Right off the bat you’ll notice a strong earthy note followed by rich fruit, nuts and cocoa. Black Pepper joins the mix here and there but isn’t overwhelming. Reminiscent of a chocolate soufflé, there’s a sweet spot on everyone’s palate waiting to be hit with Le Careme. Receiving high praise from Crowned Heads fans, this is a cigar you don’t want to pass up on.
