Le Careme by
Le Careme cigars, a new premium handmade offering from Crowned Heads, comes from the Ernesto Perez-Carrillo Jr.’s factory in the Dominican Republic, the same factory that produces the Four Kicks, Headley Grange and the J.D. Howard Reserve lines. This medium body cigar features an Ecuador Sumatra binder, aged long filler tobaccos from Nicaragua, and an almost black, Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper with hardly any visible seams. If you were to describe a cigar as a dessert flavor, La Careme would be it, because every draw delivers mouthwatering notes of chocolate, sweet spice, leather, toffee, and caramel. The taste is appropriate considering the smoke pays tribute to Marie Antoine Careme, a pioneer in French cuisine during the 1800s. This scrumptious new brand from Crowned Heads is available in elegant boxes on the JR Cigar website.
