Crowned Heads Sfumato in C Major Toro
Crowned Heads Sfumato in C Major cigars are built to celebrate the art of graceful transitions and subtlety. The name “sfumato” means “nuanced” in Italian. It refers to the painting technique pioneered by Leonardo DaVinci whereby color changes are smoothed, leading to no harsh, sharp distinctions in a work of art. A little-known piece called Mona Lisa shows the method, but you probably haven’t heard of it before.
Anyhow, the cigar is crafted around the idea of a mild-medium blend that is smooth and easygoing. Crowned Heads founder Jon Huber says, “I wanted something that would be perfect with a morning cup of coffee or complement an afternoon glass of chilled Rosé. Essentially, the goal was to create a blend with no edges, just a flavor profile that was easily approachable, smooth, and with exquisite balance.”
There is without a doubt a place for smokes like that in many people’s humidors. Even the full-strength, full-body, full-flavor hounds sometimes want to kick off a quick Sunday session with a mild blend like this. But we often want one that delivers this type of experience without being boring.
Sfumato in C Major cigars pulls it off quite well.
The blend features an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper on the outside. It’s a hybrid tobacco that provides the “C” in the cigar name. Inside, the Ecuadorian Sumatra binder brings a layer of complexity that helps the cigar achieve depth. Then, inside, we get a more flavorful leaf that doesn’t go over the top in terms of strength. There are Nicaraguan, Dominican, and Peruvian long-fillers.
