Cigar Reveal #180
So until now we have never featured the same company's cigars in back to back months, but when given the opportunity to feature two Limited Edition cigars from one of our favorite brands, this time we had to jump. It didn't hurt that it's a truly unique Connecticut wrapper smoking experience in one of our favorite 6 3/4 x 48 sizes. Coming off last month's (TN exclusive) Tennessee Waltz from Crowned Heads, we now have the perhaps the strangest name for a cigar we've ever featured: Sfumato in C Major. This was made as a limited edition cigar exclusive for attendees of the Premium Cigar Association event last year. The name itself is a classic example of Crowned Heads willingness to never settle or do anything ordinary or lazy. The name Sfumato comes from a painting technique developed by Da Vinci, stemming from the word fumo which cleverly means "smoke". The technique allows for painters to blue the lines between colors, and the C Major inspired by the Connecticut wrapper, meant to blur the lines on what a typically regarded boring Connecticut wrapped cigar can be... Yea, it's a lot. And fortunately for us Crowned Heads carefully thinks through their tobacco as much as they do their names!
