Earlier today, Federal Cigar announced that the first Crowned Heads store exclusive had arrived and was now for sale. The Headly Grange Snaredrum is an exclusive cigar made for the New Hampshire-based chain of stores, the first time such a project has been done from the Nashville-based Crowned Head.
Snaredrum is a 6 x 38 corona especiales sold in boxes of 10 for $92.50. Only 3,000 total cigars were produced by Tabacalera La Alianza S.A, the E.P. Carrillo factory responsible for producing Headley Grange. It features a Nicaraguan binder and filler and is covered by a Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper. This is the seventh vitola for the Headley Grange line, which debuted in 2012. It is the second limited edition, the first—the Drumstick—was a 7 1/2 x 38 lancero. The line draws its name from an English recording studio and in fact the idea for the blend was itself was inspired by the Led Zepplin song, “When the Levees Break.”
Rick Gadway, owner of Federal Cigar, told halfwheel the release is to commemorate the opening of the company’s new 100-seat cigar bar in Portsmouth, N.H. next month.
