Crowned Heads Mil Dias
The Mil Dias is a cigar that is near and dear to Jon Huber, founder of Crowned Heads cigars. “Mil Dias” translates to “one thousand days”, which refers to the amount of time required to bring this project from fruition to completion.
Mil Dias is cloaked in a stunning Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, with a Nicaraguan binder and filler tobaccos from Costa Rica and Nicaragua. This medium to full-bodied smoke provides delicious flavor notes of creamy pepper, earth, spice, and dark roast coffee.
Manufactured at Tabacalera Pichardo in Esteli, Nicaragua, the Mil Dias is offered in four sizes that come in a box of 10.

Las Calaveras 2020
Every year, Jon Huber of Crowned Heads releases a special limited edition cigar known as Las Calaveras. The 2020 edition of the Las Calaveras was particularly special due to it paying tribute to the late, great NBA Hall of Famer Kobe Bryant.
Reducing the production for the 2020 release, there were 1,000 boxes of each size and only 500 samplers made the Las Calaveras 2020.
For the Las Calaveras 2020, it was drenched in an Ecuador Habano wrapper, with Nicaraguan tobaccos to make up the binder and filler. Some flavor notes you may detect while smoking Las Calaveras 2020 are wood, dark chocolate, earth, and roasted nuts.
Available in three different sizes, you can now get the Las Calaveras 2020 today on JR Cigar’s website.
