A total of 3,000 boxes (72,000 cigars) of Las Calaveras EL 2014 were produced at the My Father Cigars S.A. factory in Esteli, Nicaragua, under the supervision of Jose “Pepin” Garcia and Jaime Garcia. This is the first collaboration between My Father and Crowned Heads. This limited edition cigar will change its blend and presentation with each annual release.

Pre-Smoke: 
This cigar has a dark chocolate colored wrapper that is oily and smooth. The construction looks impeccable. Light earth and mild mocha aromas come off the foot. Hay and aged tobacco flavors on the pre-light draw.
Performance: 
The draw is perfect giving off tons of smoke. Notes of earth and wood come on the draw with just the slightest hint of black pepper. The long oily finish has leather notes and peppery earth that lands and stays at the back of my throat. This is one oily cigar, from the finish to the oil slick on my lips. After about an inch, the flavors are blending together nicely with just a hint of sweetness joining in with bit of nut and coffee on the finish. Half way down, the body is between medium and full and the strength is right up there with. Wow, is this turning into a great cigar. During the last half, cedar flavors kick up a notch along with the strength. Oh yeah! This cigar just gets better the longer you smoke it.
Overall: 
The Las Calaveras Edición Limitada 2014 LC550 is an excellent cigar. Great construction and performance. Perfect draw and burn down to the nub. Perfectly balanced. The one and only problem with this smoke is it's limited. Once their gone, I can't get anymore. My Father and Crowned Heads is a match made in heaven. I can't wait to get my hands on the next release from those two.
