The Las Calaveras Edición Limitada 2015 is set to ship late April to early May. Last year, when the company launched the project, they promised it would be an annual release to pay tribute to lost loved ones.
Beginning with the Edicion Limitada 2014, Las Calaveras will be an annual release that is a respectful homage to those who have passed away in the year before, and is intended to be a celebration of their lives and remembrances, rather than a mourning or a symbol of sadness and death. Each year, we all lose a friend or loved one, or know of someone who has endured that same loss. In today’s fast-paced world, it is all too easy to forget the fragile nature that is life. Often, in the race to gain material success, we lose sight that our true legacy are the lives we touch and the love we leave behind once we pass on. It is in this spirit that Las Calaveras pays tribute to those who have touched our lives and shared their love.
With each year’s annual limited release, the blend and presentation of Las Calaveras will be altered. What will remain the same, however, is the spirit behind the cigar. We hope that with this annual remembrance, we will choose to celebrate–rather than mourn–the lives of those who have so graciously shared their legacies with us.
The Las Calaveras Edición Limitada 2015 is a completely different cigar from the 2014 Las Calaveras. The only similarity is that they share two vitolas in common: 5 x 50 robusto called LC50 ($9.95) and 6 x 52 toro known as LC52 ($10.95). The Churchill size from last year has been replaced by a 5.625 x 46 corona gorda dubbed LC46 ($8.95).
The blend is comprised of Nicaraguan binder and filler, encased in a habano rosada wrapper leaf from Ecuador.
A total of 90,000 cigars are being produced (1,250 boxes of each vitola, packaged in 24-count boxes). Once more, the Las Calaveras Edición Limitada is being rolled at My Father Cigars S.A. in Estelí, Nicaragua.
