IPCPR 2012: Crowned Heads
Perhaps it was the theme of IPCPR—old faces, new booth. There was Christian Eiroa and CLE, José Blanco and Joya de Nicaragua, Eddie Ortega and Erik Espinosa each in their own booths and even José Seijas with Litto Gomez. Also in that category were Jon Huber, Mike Conder, Michael Trebing and Nancy Heathman—formerly of CAO—who brought Nashville to Orlando in the form of Crowned Heads.
Winner. There were three booths that were talked about: Fuente, Foundry and Crowned Heads. It was the smallest and the most out of place, in a good way. Crowned Heads was one of two booths that truly felt like you weren’t a trade show—the other was Byron, which was a museum.
It was the main focus of Crowned Heads at IPCPR and definitely one of the most talked about cigars of the show. All the details are covered extensively in Brooks’ review.
Four Kicks Robusto Extra
It was a much quieter release, but the sixth size of Four Kicks was on display.
