Crowned Heads will add a new regular production size to the Mil Dias line. This is a 4 7/8 x56 Topes with a pigtail. The blend is the same as the other Mil Dias vitolas, that means an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and fillers from Nicaragua, Peru and Costa Rica. For some limited edition Mil Dias, Crowned Heads used another wrapper.

“We felt the timing was right to expand the Mil Días range, and this will be the largest ring gauge to-date in the brand,” said Jon Huber, co-founder of Crowned Heads, in a press release. “We found the larger ring gauge when combined with a shorter length really allowed the blend to open up and express itself, emphasizing the unique floral notes and sweetened cream tones that Mil Dias has become known for.”
Before splitting ways with ACE Prime last year, most Crowned Heads cigars were made at Tabacalera Pichardo. Now even though nobody knows exactly what happened with that break-up, it starts to look like there was a disagreement between Luciano Meirelles on one side, his partner Eradio Pichardo and Crowned Heads on the other side. Cigar Inspector draws this conclusion, as Tabacalera Pichardo was split in two, with TacaNicsa now run by Eradio Pichardo and Luciano Cigars Cigar Factory run by Meirelles. Ironically, physically both factories are under the same roof, although Luciano Cigars opened a second factory as well. The new Mil Dias is produced at TacaNicsa, the new Pichardo factory.

The name, Spanish for 1,000 days, references the amount of time that passed between when the Tabacalera Pichardo factory gave some samples to Crowned Heads and when the Mil Días blend was finalized.
