Nashville-based Crowned Heads is a rockin’, boot-stompin’ boutique cigar brand, breaking out into the scene like a hot guitar riff back in 2011. In the years since, they've been known for two things: a dedication to traditional, small-batch quality and devotion to classic counterculture icons.
From Led Zeppelin to Jess James, rebels are at the heart of the Crowned Heads brand. Each cigar is playfully named after these icons and crafted up to a high standard. And for all their rebellious imagery, Crowned Heads still partners with some of the biggest names in cigars to create their blends – most notably E.P. Carrillo and the unbeatable Garcias.
Crowned Heads' unique marketing and branding should come as no surprise to those familiar with the company's origins. You see, the company got started when a bunch of CAO employees defected after CAO was relocated from Nashville to the General Cigars headquarters in Virginia. The Nashville folks decided to start their own nimble brand to carry on the spirit of what they'd been doing at CAO.
Specifically, Crowned Heads is the brainchild of CAO's former Director of Lifestyle Marketing, Senior VP of Marketing, Creative Media Manager, and Graphic Designer. A good chunk of the team responsible for building up the CAO cigar brand around the pre-2011 time jumped ship and launched Crowned Heads to keep “NashVegas” wild. As a footnote, in 2011, Nashville was recovering from a devastating flood that caused billions of dollars of damage and had the whole area covered in a full carpeting of cicadas. The Nashville locals weren't going to let their city go down for long and a kick-ass cigar brand can be a strong contributing part of any city’s recovery.
Crowned Heads has released hit after hit, like the Headley Grande Estupendo, Jericho Hill, and Las Mareas blends, to name a few. We’re sure these boys down south will be cranking up the tunes and cranking out the stogies for years to come.
