Crowned Heads Headley Grange Chamuco | LeeMack912 Cigar Review (S06 E49). San Andres Wrapper, Nicaraguan binder & filler. #leemack912 smokes & reviews.
In 2016, about three and a half years after Headley Grange debuted, Crowned Heads released a maduro version of the line as an exclusive to JR Cigar, dubbed the Black Dog, a name that shares its origins with the original line’s. Headley Grange was named for the studio in England where Led Zeppelin recorded “When the Levee Breaks,” which was the inspiration for the blend. In particular, Jon Huber wanted to create a cigar that tasted as distinctive as the opening drum beat of that song.
So when it came time for the maduro version, Huber turned to the band’s album, Led Zeppelin IV, which contained the original song as well as another track called Black Dog, an appropriate title given the darker color of that cigar’s Connecticut habano maduro wrapper.
Huber wasn’t done with the dog-themed names for Headley Grange line extensions, as in 2018 the Black Lab LE 2018 would debut, using the same blend as Black Dog but limited to just 1,500 boxes of 12 cigars, which came in a 6 x 52 toro vitola.
In 2019, the Crowned Heads teamed returned with another limited edition for its Headley Grange line, and once again, named for a breed of dog: the Chamuco.
The name comes from a breed of dog that is also referred to as a Mexican pit bull, which is a cross between an American pit bull and the extinct Mexican bulldog.
Given its name origins, it should come as no surprise that the cigar uses a Mexican San Andrés wrapper, a replacement for the Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper found on the regular production version of the Headley Grange line. Underneath that leaf is the normal blend though, meaning a binder and filler that both come from Nicaragua.
