Headley Grange Drumstick Review

The Label Factor:

The label on the Headley Grange Drumstick is identical to the standard Headley label, just a bit smaller to accommodate the slender 38 ring gauge. The Drumstick has some serious allure – it’s not only the appeal of such a unique looking cigar, but also the knowledge that this is an endangered species with only a limited release. Because I know how rare these guys are, I feel like it should have a “Limited Edition” kicker band similar to what was found on the Mule Kick. I want people to KNOW that I’m smoking a limited edition. Well, that’s okay – I came prepared. As someone who has never thrown away a cigar label, I was able to do a bit of recycling here. Am I weird for doing this? Yes. Did I get a kick out of it anyway? Yes. Am I done asking and answering my own questions? Yes.

The Label Factor:

The most interesting thing about the Tatuaje Black Label is not the label, which follows the same pattern as the Seleccion De Cazador and Havana VI, but the story behind the stick.

So, after returning to Nicaragua, Pete worked with the Garcia family to recreate the experience. The Black Label is that recreation.

My Father No.4 Review

The Label Factor:

This label reminds me of a wedding dress. The only way I can figure to explain that is by describing it as “flowing”, which brings to mind a dress. Yes, I realize that wedding dresses don’t typically have this much pink and gold in them. Great, now everybody thinks I’m weird. Look, the label flows, alright?
