Crowned Heads has announced a new exclusive cigar for the State of Ohio known as Buckeye Land. What is unique about this cigar is that Drew Estate will be producing this cigar from Crowned Heads. This not only marks the first time Crowned Heads has worked with Drew Estate, but it also is the first time Crowned Heads has produced as cigar outside of Ernesto Perez-Carrillo Jr’s Tabacalera La Alianza and the Garcia family’s My Father Cigars facilities.
Buckeye Land was blended by Drew Estate Master Blender Willy Herrera and is being produced at La Gran Fabrica Drew Estate in Estelí, Nicaragua. The cigar will be available in one size – a 6 x 48 parejo cigar. The blend features a Mexican San Andres wrapper, Connecticut Broadleaf binder, and a combination of Nicaraguan and Pennsylvania Broadleaf fillers. Pricing is set at $9.60 per cigar.
“This marks our first state exclusive since we introduced Paniolo Especiale (Hawaii) back in 2015,” commented Crowned Heads co-founder Jon Huber in a press release, “but we garnered a strong following in Ohio over the years. The state also holds a special place in my heart as my wife was born in Lancaster, Ohio. Her maiden name is “Land” hence Buckeye Land. We could not be more excited to be working with Willy Herrera and Drew Estate on this project. I believe Willy and I share a similar admiration for the artistry and tradition of cigar making, and as such the creative process on this particular project was very fluid.”
Ohio is also the home state of Crowned Heads National Sales Manager Miguel Schoedel.
Herrera commented, “It’s an honor to work on this project with Jon Huber. To have the opportunity to collaborate with someone whom I admire and whose work I love is really exciting. I am beyond stoked sound the finished product.
