Rick Gadway, owner of Federal Cigar, told halfwheel the release will coincide with the company’s new 100-seat cigar bar in Portsmouth, N.H. It will be limited to 300 boxes of 10 with pricing expected between $9-9.25 per cigar.

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 7 1/2 x 38. The line draw its name from an English recording studio. The line itself was inspired by the Led Zepplin song, “When the Levees Break.”

Snaredrum will be the first store exclusive from Crowned Heads. Headley Grange is made at Tabacalera La Alianza S.A. in the Dominican Republic.

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.
