Crowned Heads is teaming up with Drew Estate for the release of “Buckeye Land,” a new cigar that will be produced exclusively for the state of Ohio.
Manufactured at La Gran Fabrica Drew Estate in Esteli, Nicaragua and blended by renowned Master Blender, Willy Herrera, “Buckeye Land” is a 6 x 48 parejo cigar. The blend features a Connecticut Broadleaf binder, Nicaraguan and Pennsylvanian (broadleaf) fillers, and is finished with a Mexican San Andres wrapper.
“This marks our first state exclusive since we introduced Paniolo Especiale (Hawaii) back in 2015,” commented Crowned Heads co-owner/founder, Jon Huber, “but we’ve garnered a strong following in Ohio over the years. 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.”
Drew Estate Master Blender, Willy Herrera, further added, “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 about the finished product.”
Buckeye Land will begin shipping in late October, and will have an MSRP of $9.60 per cigar.
