Crowned Heads is based in Nashville but for its next cigar, it’s heading to the state of Ohio. Buckeye Land will be a collaboration between Crowned Heads and Drew Estate and will be released exclusively in Ohio.
Buckeye Land is manufactured at Drew Estate’s La Gran Fabrica located in Esteli, Nicaragua. It will be blended by Willy Herrera, the master blender at Drew Estate and will feature a Connecticut Broadleaf binder, Nicaraguan and Pennsylvanian broadleaf fillers and a Mexican San Andres wrapper.
“This marks our first state exclusive since we introduced Paniolo Especiale (Hawaii) back in 2015, but we’ve garnered a strong following in Ohio over the years,” said Jon Huber, co-founder of Crowned Heads. That 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.”
