The brand new CHC Serie E stands for rowned Heads Court and Eruption. Inspired by Eddie Van Halen's guitar solo from the song "Eruption".
“I listened to that solo and saw it as a sonic metaphor for smoking this cigar,” said Jon Huber, co-founder of Crowned Heads, in a press release. “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 was reminiscent of the finish of the cigar, it al paralleled seamlessly. The CHC Serie E smoking experience is a medium-plus-bodied dance on the edge between technical mastery and random entropy, resolving in a balanced, melodious harmony.” (Quote from Halfwheel)
Look for notes of pepper, earth, sprice, and subtle sweetness throughout.
