Le Careme Robusto by Crowned Heads

Connecticut Broadleaf, Crowned Heads, Le Careme, MaduroLe Careme Robusto by Crowned Heads. What a perfect morning cigar and a great companion to my morning coffee with cream… Ahhhhhh a morning delight every time I light this cigar.

I think this was the last of my Le Careme Robustos, so I’ll have to replenish with another 5-pack or maybe it’s time to commit to a box this time.

If you couldn’t tell, these cigars are one of my favorites, especially to start my day since I know I can count on this to provide those flavors that are soon to be defining my “Checkbox” of sought-after tobacco flavors.

If you’re a fan of the “Broadleaf” (Grade A Dark) and Ecuadoran Binders, then this is a cigar for you.

The Le Carême (pronounced “Kuh-Rem”) is produced in collaboration with Ernesto Perez-Carrillo Jr. (2018, Cigar Aficionado’s Cigar of the Year) and his Tabacalera La Alianza S.A. factory.

Connecticut Broadleaf in the Morning, That’s How I Roll

Chocolate, Chocolate, Chocolate… If I didn’t know any better I’d think I’m about to take a bite from a chocolate candy bar. The aroma and cold draw are inviting me in. I can’t wait to light this morning’s Crowned Heads Le Careme cigar.

The first draw is perfect delivering tons of chewy creamy soufflé smoke. If you couldn’t tell I’m no stranger to this cigar; it’s a perfect morning smoke. Well rounded earthy flavors envelope my senses; there’s no pepper spice to speak of on the retrohale, it’s a mild cigar at this point.

Almost at the end of the first third; if I weren’t concerned about exploring different cigars, flavors, and blends, I’d say this cigar along with a few others lands squarely in my sweet spot of flavors; Connecticut Broadleaf (Grade A Dark) wrapper and Ecuadorian Sumatra binder. More please.

Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro, Crowned Heads, Le CaremeI’ve had several of the Le Careme by Crowned Heads. As a matter of fact, the Le Careme is the first Crowned Heads cigar I’ve smoked, and I’ve been curious about the other smokes in their line-up of cigars. This journey never ends. Today I’m paying attention to the Le Careme by Crowned Heads.

Breakfast Maduro

The cold draw welcomes familiar flavors, sweet cocoa, coffee, and tobacco. Soon to follow, and I’m welcoming big mouthfuls of dry cocoa and pepper and definite spice on the retrohale. Ah yes, a familiar smoke greets me this morning from a familiar companion.

I’m not wasting any time enjoying this quickly to the halfway point where creamy oaky wood is starting to show up. This is probably the fastest I’ve worked my way through a cigar. Everything is rolling along letting me know that all is good.
