Wrapper: Connecticut Broadleaf
The Las Calaveras EL 2023 marks the first time since 2016, and only the second time in the series since its debut in 2014, that the blend will feature a Grade A Dark Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper. The medium-to-full bodied flavor profile is a classic Broadleaf-expression, marrying notes of pepper, cocoa, sweet cream, and earth. The Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper completes a blend of all Nicaraguan binder and filler tobaccos.
A total of 1,500 (24-count) boxes of each of the three vitolas were produced at My Father Cigars in Esteli, Nicaragua. An additional 3,000 samplers were produced featuring one of each of the three vitolas, along with a sampler-exclusive Belicoso Fino (5 1/2” x 52). Each 24-count box of Las Calaveras is packaged with three rows of eight cigars. The three rows represent life’s cycle of a beginning, middle, and end. In biblical terms, the number ‘8’ signifies new beginnings, and in mathematical terms an ‘8’ laid on its side symbolizes “infinity,” as in eternal life.
