Crowned Heads Headley Grange

Crowned Heads will release a limited edition store exclusive to Federal Cigar in New Hampshire.  The Crowned Heads Headley Grange Snaredrum becomes the first store exclusive to be released by the Nashville-based company.  The Snaredrum will be a 6 x 38 Corona Especiales based on the Headley Grange blend.  The cigar will be available at Federal Cigar locations on July 11th.

The production of the Snaredrum will be limited to 300 boxes.  Each box will contain ten cigars making for a total production of 3,000 cigars.

Headley Grange was the second line released by Crowned Heads.  The Headley Grange Snaredrum becomes the eighth size to be released in this blend by Crowned Heads. There are six regular production blends and last year the company released a limited edition lancero called “Drumstick”.

The theme of drums is an important part of this release by Crowned Heads.  Headley Grange is named for the famed music studio in England.  The inspiration for this cigar stemmed from the song “When the Levee Breaks” by Led Zepplein, a band who recorded at the Headley Grange studio. The idea was to create a cigar smoking experience reflecting the heavy drumbeat at the beginning of that song.  Headley Grange is made at Ernesto Perez-Carrillo’s Tabacalera La Alianza.  Perez-Carrillo also happened to once be an active drummer.

At a glance here is a look at the Snaredrum and the remainder of the Headley Grange line.
