New Headley Grange Sizes Shipping Next Week

Four additional sizes of Headley Grange will begin shipping around March 15. The cigar brand, named after the recording studio where Led Zeppelin recorded the song “When the Levee Breaks” and other tracks for their Led Zeppelin IV album, was launched late last year with only one size, which scored 91 points and was named to Cigar Aficionado’s list of Top 25 cigars of 2012.

The Eminentes (5 1/4 inches by 44 ring), Corona Gorda (5 5/8 by 46), Hermoso No. 4 (5 by 48) and the Dobles (6 1/8 by 50) will join the Estupendos, the 5 1/2 by 52 debut smoke in the line.

The new sizes are made with the same blend as the original: Ecuador Sumatra wrapper, Nicaraguan binder and Nicaraguan filler.

The cigars are trunk pressed and made in Santiago, Dominican Republic, under the watchful eye of Ernesto Perez-Carrillo. Headley Grange is owned by Crowned Heads LLC, a small and new cigar company based in Nashville, Tennessee.

"Kyle thanks for the catch--the Eminentes is actually 5 1/4 inches by 44 ring. We've corrected the copy." —March 8, 2013 14:14 PM
"Eminentes 5 1/2 x 52 and Estupendos 5 1/2 x 52. Should there be a correction? Maybe 6 1/2 x 52?" —March 8, 2013 14:05 PM
