Crowned Heads has announced a new limited edition Four Kicks Mule Kick for 2022. The Mule Kick is a special version of the Four Kicks line. This is the first limited version since 2022 and only the sixth one since the first in 2012. The original Four Kicks Mule Kick featured an Habano wrapper the company decided was too dark for the regular production Four Kicks brand, and a slightly altered binder-filler combination. That version, which released in November of 2012, was limited to 500 (10-count) boxes. That same blend was re-released again in 2017. From 2018-2020, the Mule Kick blend was released annually, each year with a different wrapper leaf (Connecticut Habano, Ecuadorian Sumatra, and Nicaraguan Jalapa, respectively). Now, for the first time, the 2022 Mule Kick blend will feature a Mexican San Andres oscuro wrapper. the binder-filler tobaccos remain the same.
We’re very excited to be bringing back the Mule Kick brand after a two year hiatus. We began working on this rendition late last year with Ernesto (Perez-Carrillo) and quickly discovered that the Mexican (San Andres) wrapper really complemented the Mule Kick blend; it lended a unique taste profile to the cigar that is unlike any previous Mule Kick version. The 2022 Mule Kick is impeccably balanced with great structure, and exhibits a nice smokey-spicy-sweet flavor profile.
