The 25 Best Cigars of the Year 2012

Headley Grange Estupendo

24

The goal was audacious and completely original: to make a cigar that tasted like the heavy, pounding drum beat on the lead-in to the Led Zeppelin classic “When the Levee Breaks.” The young company Crowned Heads LLC dubbed the cigar Headley Grange, after the name of the building where the song was recorded, turning to cigar guru Ernesto Perez-Carrillo (who just happens to be a former drummer) for the task.

The cigar is medium to full in body, with rich coffee flavors as well as notes of almond and spice, a solid follow-up to the first Crowned Heads cigar, Four Kicks. In another unusual move, Crowned Heads released but one size of Headley Grange in 2012. Additional sizes come this year.
