For the third consecutive year, Crowned Heads will release a cigar made exclusively for the attendees at the annual PCA Convention and Trade Show. This year, the Crowned Heads PCA exclusive is the Le Pâtissier No. 2, a classic 6 1/8 x 52 torpedo that utilizes the bold and rich Broadleaf-based blend which Le Pâtissier has become renowned for.

  • Binder: Nicaragua

  • Filler: Nicaragua & Costa Rica

  • MSRP: $13

“It’s a rarity that we’ve released a figurado in our portfolio. To this day, the only torpedo we’ve produced on a regular production basis goes back to our original Four Kicks Piramide dating back to 2011.Having said that, I have always been enamored with the classic torpedo vitola since I began smoking cigars almost thirty years ago, like the Montecristo No. 2 and the H. Upmann No. 2 both considered classic Cuban cigars. We always strive to bring something special to our PCA exclusive, so we felt the Le Pâtissier No. 2 was a good fit.” – said Jon Huber, co-founder of Crowned Heads.

The Le Pâtissier No. 2 will be available exclusively to attendees of the 2023 PCA Convention and Trade Show July 7 – 11 in Las Vegas, Nevada. It will carry a suggested retail price of $13 and will come in black boxes unique to the brand and this release.
