Crowned Heads is set to followup 2018’s limited-edition Black Lab LE 2018 cigar, continuing the canine theme with the Headley Grange Chamuco LE 2019.
Headley Grange Black Lab took inspiration from Led Zeppelin’s “Black Dog,” which, in turn, was inspired by a black Labrador that was found at the Headley Grange building where the band recorded their Led Zeppelin IV album. But the 2019 iteration is not as closely tied to the band or Headley Grange building, instead being named for a Mexican Pit Bull breed known as Chamuco (a cross between an American Pit Bull and the now-extinct Mexican Bulldog).
Headley Grange Chamuco LE 2019 incorporates the original Headley Grange blend and an altered wrapper ingredient, swapping the Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper for a new Mexican San Andrés maduro leaf. Chamuco has been rolled in a singular 5½” x 54 box-pressed format, which is box-pressed and features a closed foot. The closed foot is carried over from the Black Lab release, which “spotlights the natural sweet nature of the Mexican wrapper upon initial ignition.” The cigars will be limited to 1,500 boxes of 12 cigars, set to begin shipping later this month with an MSRP of $10.95.
