Crowned Heads launching cigar with Jesse James homage

Up-and-coming local cigar marketer Crowned Heads is preparing to bring to market its third cigar, which will pay tribute to Jesse James, who spent some time in Nashville. Co-founder Jon Huber has given trade pub Cigar Aficianado the details.

"There's a fine line when you're inspired by something, and when you're making it obvious and gimmicky," Huber said. "This is a very subtle homage and inspiration--no guns, no wanted posters. People will ask, ‘Who is J.D. Howard? It's not going got be obvious."
