Fans of cigars and death rejoice, this cigar was made for you and your Dia de los Muertos-themed décor. Of course, the Mexican Day of the Dead holiday is a positive and uplifting celebration of the lives of those we’ve lost along the way—it doesn’t hurt that it also includes some of the coolest skeleton-themed subculture that we know of…

Las Calaveras is the embodiment of the aforementioned, in the form of a limited edition cigar by Crowned Heads. In typical Crowned Heads fashion, the cigars are incredibly well-designed, and feature about as much symbolism as any cigar you’ll find—the cigars are packaged in 24-count boxes, each containing 3 rows of 8 cigars—the 3 rows represent life’s cycle of a beginning, middle, and end. In biblical terms, the number ‘8’ signifies new beginnings, and in mathematical terms, an ‘8’ laid on its side symbolizes “infinity,” as in eternal life.
