Crowned Heads announced today that they will be partnering with Drew Estate for “Buckeye Land,” a special project that will be sold exclusively through the state of Ohio.

Crowned Heads is no stranger to the concept of regional releases, with past projects such as Paniolo Especiale (Hawaii), Tennessee Waltz (Tennessee), Yellow Rose (Texas), and The Mason Dixon Project (North and South), though it has been three years since the company has introduced such a release. Perhaps most intriguing is the manufacturing partner, as Crowned Heads has historically worked with two factories: Tabacalera La Alianza S.A. in the DR, and My Father Cigars S.A. in Nicaragua. Likewise, Drew Estate has not, historically, been known to produce cigars for third parties, at least until recent years (with releases such as Caldwell’s All Out Kings and Ventura Cigar Co.’s Archetype Chapter 2 cigars).

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. That state also holds a strong 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.Jon Huber, Crowned Heads co-owner/founder

The Ohio-exclusive cigars will be manufactured at Drew Estate’s La Gran Fabrica Drew Estate factory in Estelí, using a Mexican San Andrés wrapper, Connecticut Broadleaf binder, and fillers of Nicaragua and Pennsylvania Broadleaf. The cigar is named for a combination of the Ohio State Buckeyes and Jon Huber’s (co-founder of Crowned Heads) wive’s maiden name, “Land.”
