But for the fans of that cigar, hold your horses. It’s only the name that returns as the blend has changed, the manufacturer has changed and the size has changed. The original 2015 release was made at My Father Cigars and was a 5½x48 Corona, the new release is a 5×50 Robusto made by Tabacalera Pichardo. Just like the original release, it will be an event exclusive cigar but this time it is not a limited edition. The 2015 release was limited to 6000 cigars.

As for the name, Crowned Heads explained its inspiration in much greater detail this time around:

‘Blood Medicine’ takes its name from a three-story building located on the corner of Broadway and 4th Avenue in downtown Nashville, Tennessee. That building was originally built as a three-floor pharmacy in 1872 before being converted into a hotel in 1892. The hotel operated until the 1980’s, and in 1988 the building would be purchased and re-opened as Merchants Restaurant. Nashville’s music scene would attract some legendary musicians to stay at The Merchants Hotel over the years, including Hank Williams, Dolly Parton, Johnny Cash, and Patsy Cline. There are rumors that the building also served as a brothel and a casino over the years. While many legendary tales exist about the historic building, including legends of Civil War ghosts that still wander the halls, evidence of the original pharmacy still exists. On the painted words, “Blood Medicine,” remains still visible. Blood Medicine pays homage to the history of Crowned Heads’ home city of Nashville with a unique smoking experience.
