Crowned Head releases Mil Dias. Mil Dias is a project that started in 2017. The name reflects that. Three years equals one thousand days. That’s the time it took from the first samples to evolve in the final release. But the result is finally here.
Crowned Heads is known to work with My Father Cigars and Ernesto Perez-Carrillo. But there are more partners. The successful Juarez brand is made at Tabacalera Pichardo. And while that line is inspired on the Jericho Hill, the Mil Dias is a stand-alone blend.
During the IPCPR Trade Show in July of 2017, Don Eradio Pichardo and Luciano Meirelles presented some samples. Jon Huber from Crowned Head was impressed. “I was very impressed with those initial samplers and I felt the blend ha tremendous potential,” Huber wrote in a press release. “Little did I know that those samples would take us on a nearly three-year journey of blend exploration and experimentation.”
Blend and sizes
Mil Dias is made with an Ecuadorian wrapper and a Nicaraguan binder. They are wrapped around fillers from Nicaragua, Peru, and Costa Rica. There are four sizes available. A 6×46 Corona Gorda, a 5⅜x52 Edmundo, 6⅜x50 Double Robusto, and last but not least a 6×54 Sublime.
Luciano Meirelles commented “To create a blend and innovate you need to take risks beyond conventional thinking. Mil Dias represents our relationship’s journey. It also highlights the fruitfulness of our recently announced strategic alliance. Meirelles is co-owner of Tabacalera Pichardo and Ace Prime Group with Don Radio Pichardo. Pichardo added “When Luciano had me try his first blend of the Mil Dias I knew right away we had something magical. I am very excited to see Crowned Heads release this fantastic cigar.”
