Crowned Heads Las Mareas ("the tides") is a surf culture inspired cigar as a collaboration between Jon Huber and Don Pepin Garcia's My Father Factory. In fact, all of the tobaccos used in these medium to full-bodied gems are produced on the Garcia's farms.
The wrapper is a Corojo '99 capa with a nice reddish tint. It surrounds a Nicaraguan binder and long-fillers, all selected to create a harmonious flavor profile featuring sweet cedar, leather, a bit of caramel and fruit, with just enough spice to create excellent balance. This is one cigar that really highlights what teamwork can do.
