Crowned Heads will be releasing one more limited edition before the end of the year.

The Buckingham is the newest cigar from the Tennessee-based company, made for Cigar Federation and Delaware Cigars, the company responsible for the site’s online store. The unbanded 6 x 46 cigar incorporates Nicaraguan tobacco for both the binder and filler, and uses Mexican San Andrés tobacco for the wrapper. Like the past five releases, the newest Crowned Heads project is rolled at My Father Cigars S.A. in Estelí, Nicaragua.

“Today I am proud to announce the second Cigar Federation community cigar, Buckingham by Crowned Heads,” said Logan Lawler, owner of, in an email sent to Cigar Federation members this morning. “I approached Crowned Heads after I purchased Cigar Federation in July to create a cigar which would commemorate the ‘changing of the guard,’ hence the name Buckingham.”

Crowned Heads The Buckingham


Jon Huber, owner of Crowned Heads, had previously posted a photograph on social media of The Buckingham that he nicknamed Proyecto 5, which translates to English as Project 5. The name is in reference to the fact that the company had five projects that it knew it was going to release by the end of the year: The Mason-Dixon Project, Tennessee Waltz, Arrington Vineyards Double-W, Hecho con Corazon—LE 2014 and The Buckingham.

Previously, Crowned Heads and Lawler had announced they would be working on a project known as Texacali, a collaboration made for Cigar Chat, the radio show Logan co-hosts. Huber confirmed to halfwheel that The Buckingham is the realization of that project.

This is the second cigar made for the members of Cigar Federation, Ezra Zion Cigars released The Collective in February of this year. A variety of other exclusives have been made for the Cigar Federation Store.

Only 2,000 cigars were produced and they will be sold in 10-count mazos starting on Thursday for Cigar Federation members with any remaining stock to be sold to the general public on Friday through the Cigar Federation Store and Delaware Cigar. The cigars will retail for $7.95 with mazos of 10 retailing for $79.50 before applicable taxes.

The cigars are scheduled to ship the first week of December and they can be preordered here.

I have been smoking cigars for over eight years. A documentary wedding photographer by trade, I spent seven years as a photojournalist for the Dallas Morning News and the Fort Worth Star Telegram. I started the cigar blog SmokingStogie in 2008 after realizing that there was a need for a cigar blog with better photographs and more in-depth information about each release. SmokingStogie quickly became one of the more influential cigar blogs on the internet, known for reviewing preproduction, prerelease, rare, extremely hard-to-find and expensive cigars. I am a co-founder of halfwheel and now serve as an editor for halfwheel.
