“Some people think a song without words isn’t a real song. Tell that to Beethoven and he’ll kick your ass!”
— Eddie Van Halen
From the maestros at Crowned Heads, the CHC Serie E cigar line was blended to rock your palate with refined rich taste.
An ambitious project inspired by the late Eddie Van Halen’s famous guitar solo on legendary rock band Van Halen’s song “Eruption” from their 1978 self-titled LP, the Serie E is equal parts technical mastery and natural harmony, resulting in a symphonic smoke for the senses. Spinning a top-shelf Ecuadorian Habano Oscuro wrapper leaf around a sturdy Nicaraguan binder and aged Nicaraguan tobaccos from the Jalapa, Ometepe, and Pueblo Nuevo regions, the CHC Serie E conjures a complex crescendo of earthy, spicy, and sweet taste.
“I listened to that solo and saw it as a sonic metaphor for smoking this cigar,” says co-founder of Crowned Heads John Huber. “From the drum and bass intro, which I saw as the cutting-lighting-prep of the cigar, to the mixing of triads and harmonics which I compared to the complexity of the flavor profile, to the bottoming-out dive bombs that were reminiscent of the finish of the cigar, it all paralleled seamlessly.”
