Crowned Heads Announces Le Carême Pastelitos 2023

February 9, 2023 By Matthew Tabacco



Crowned Heads has announced its limited edition 2023 Le Carême Pastelitos cigar, a 4 x 54 robusto made by Ernesto Perez-Carrillo Jr. at Tabacalera La Alianza. This will continue an unofficial tradition of short format limited releases by Crowned Heads, who has done other one off LE’s in the small vitola range with their other blends in years past.

This Pastelitos will also be a round format versus the standard box-pressed one that the rest of the Pastelitos line consists of. It will also feature a classic pigtail cap to give it a more classic look.

  • Size: 4 x 54 – Short Robusto

The Le Carême Pastelitos will ship to retailers in March.
