Crowned Heads will be adding a new regular production line extension to its Headley Grange line. The Headley Grange Laguito No. 6 will not only be the largest ring gauge cigar in the line (56), but it will also be the first cigar to be in a parejo shape. The cigar is being targeted for a Summer, 2014 release.
Information on the Laguito No. 6 surfaced on social media back in April. Last week, the information on the project was released to Cigar Insider, and was followed up by Cigar Aficionado on 5/13/14.
Headley Grange takes its cue from the music industry – named after a famed London Recording Studio. The cigar is made at Ernesto Perez-Carrillo’s Tabacalera La Alianza factory. As mentioned the Laguito No. 6 will be made in a rounded parejo shape – as opposed to the trunk press shape used for the other regular production cigars. The cigars will feature a twisted fan-tail style cap.
While it is a core line, Crowned Heads co-founder Jon Huber told Cigar Aficionado that the rollers at Tabacalera La Alianza will only be able to make 200 to 225 Laguito No. 6 cigars a day for a total of 50,000 cigars per year.
The Headley Grange contains Nicaraguan tobaccos surrounded by an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper.
Wrapper: Ecuadorian Sumatra
While Headley Grange’s other cigars come in boxes of 24, the Laguito No. 6 will come in boxes of 10. In 2013, Crowned Heads also introduced a limited edition lancero called Headley Grange Drumstick that was also packaged in boxes of 10.
