Crowned Heads will be debuting the Le Pâtissier brand at this years Premium Cigar Association (PCA) trade show in Las Vegas, NV.
Originally released at 2021’s PCA as an exclusive launch, Le Pâtissier quickly gained a strong presence and smoker following. It was introduced to the market at a 6 1/2 x 44 Perejo. Now, after a year of gaining good reputation, Le Pâtissier will be gaining the status of a regularly produced premium cigar from Crowned Heads. Crowned Heads will be manufacturing the Le Pâtissier in 4 vitolas: Senadores (6 1/8 x 48), No. 50 (4 3/8 x 50), Canonazo (5 7/8 x 52), No. 54 (5 3/8 x 54).
Le Pâtissier is inspired by another Crowned Heads brand, the La Careme Series, which shares brand language and inspiration, but dramatically different in blend and flavor profile according to Crowned Heads.
Shipping starts in July 2022.
From Jon Huber:
“We knew going into last year’s PCA show that we had something special in the Le Pâtissier blend,” commented Jon Huber, Co-Founder of Crowned Heads. “Having said that, dialing that blend down into a 44 ring gauge was a challenge as we could only use lower priming wrappers that would yield a thinner cover leaf. Immediately after the release, we went to work on re-purposing the Le Pâtissier blend into a slightly larger ring gauge range, and it took the flavor profile and performance to the next level. The result is a Broadleaf (CT) expression that is completely unique to any of our previous forays with that wrapper.”Jon Huber, Co-Founder Crowned Heads
