News: Crowned Heads Announces J.D. Howard Reserve

Crowned HeadsNashville, Tennessee based Crowned Heads announces new cigar line set to compliment previously released lines Headley Grange and Four Kicks.

As first reported by Cigar Aficionado, the new cigar line – referred to as the J.D. Howard Reserve – is based upon notorious American out-law Jesse James.

One little known fact about Jessi James was that he and brother Frank moved to Nashville, Tennessee – which happens to be where Crowned Heads is head-quartered.  Between 1876 and 1879 Jesse and Frank James assumed hidden identities under the aliases of Thomas Howard and B.J. Woodson.  (source: Wikipedia)
