Le Careme Robusto 5x50
It pays tribute to Marie Antoine Carême, a pioneer in French cuisine during the 1800s whose long list of accomplishments includes the establishing of mother sauces, prolific documentation of French cuisine and popularizing the soufflé.
Le Carême is made at Ernesto Perez-Carrillo Jr.’s Tabacalera La Alianza S.A., the same factory that produces the Four Kicks, Headley Grange and J.D. Howard Reserve lines for Crowned Heads.
Perez-Carrillo Jr. described the finalized blend, saying, “it tastes like a chocolate soufflé.”
It uses a Connecticut broadleaf Grade A Dark wrapper, Ecuadorian Sumatra binder and Nicaraguan filler.
