Crowned Heads Le Carême Belicosos Finos Limited Edition 2021

Crowned Heads Le Carême Belicosos Finos Limited Edition 2021

Crowned Heads Le Carême Belicosos Finos Limited Edition 2021 1600 900 Michel Arlia

The Le Carême Belicosos Finos Limited Edition size was initially released by Crowned Heads Cigars in 2018 and since then has been a yearly release, except for 2020. The 2021 release is limited to 1,000 boxes and significantly lower than the 2,500 in 2019.

Blend-wise, the Limited Edition doesn’t vary from the regular production Le Carême line. Like the prior years, the 2021 is also produced at the La Alianza factory in the Dominican Republic.

Le Carême Belicosos Finos Limited Edition 2021

Le Carême Belicosos Finos Limited Edition 2021: the cold draw reveals wood, spice, and cocoa aromas. Once lit, the cigar opens with nuts, leather, and vegetal notes.

Le Carême Belicosos Finos Limited Edition 2021

A cocoa sweetness appears in the second third, behind the leather, wood, nuts, and earth. Faint herbal sensations can be made out as well. The pepper is still only perceptible through the retro-hale, and strength remains unchanged.

In the middle section, the flavor profile is enriched by nutty notes, where the walnut stands out. Strength picks up a little bit, but it is enough to reach a medium to full level (4/5).

The herbal note turns balsamic and becomes the prominent flavor in the last third, with the leather, wood, and earth following. Pepper remains only present in the retro-hale, and the strength increases to a medium level (3/5).

Overall, the Crowned Heads Le Carême Belicosos Finos Limited Edition 2021 is a balanced and light-bodied smoke. The flavors are well outlined, and the dialed-back strength makes them shine even more. The only complaint is that the intensity and persistence of the aromas on the finish are almost none existent as soon as the smoke is expelled.
