They say it takes 10,000 hours to become an expert in any given field. Myth or not, Crowned Heads and Tabacalera Pichardo in Nicaragua seem to have taken that maxim to heart, working for 1,000 days to get their cigar brand, Mil Días, just right.

Mil Días, which translates to “1,000 days,” began back in 2017 when ACE Prime Cigars co-founders Eradio Pichardo and Luciano Meirelles (who also co-own Tabacalera Pichardo) presented some blend samples to Jon Huber, co-founder of Crowned Heads.

"I was very impressed with those initial samples and I felt the blend had tremendous potential," said Huber. “Little did I know that those samples would take us on a nearly three-year journey of blend exploration and experimentation."

Shipping to retailers in August, Mil Días consists of an Ecuador Habano wrapper, Nicaraguan binder and filler from Nicaragua, Peru and Costa Rica. Crowned Heads describes the cigars as medium to full in body and the line comes in four sizes: Corona Gorda, measuring 6 inches by 46 ring gauge; Edmundo, 5 3/8 by 52; Double Robusto, 6 3/8 by 50 and Sublime, 6 by 54.

The logo on the 20-count box is the confluence of four “Ms”, each letter representing the M in the word “Mil” as well as the Roman numeral for 1,000.
