Last year, Crowned Heads released the Four Kicks Capa Especial, a blend that was one of the final contenders for the original Four Kicks, but didn't make the original cut. Now that blend is coming in a new limited figurado vitola for 2021, Águilas. The Águilas viotla goes back to the Cuban Romeo y Julieta Águilas in the 1960's that was later discontinued in the 1970's. "Águila" translates to Eagle in English.
"I might say this cigar wasn't exactly in my wheelhouse when it comes to the flavor profile, but I also found it enjoyable. This was a solid cigar and it put on a good performance for my tastebuds. I could easily enjoy this one again." -Isaac M. (The Nothing)

"If you are in to earthy, spicy cigars, that perform well and don't disappoint, then this is a cigar for you. It developed from medium to the high end of medium full throughout that smoking experience on an almost linear level. No abrupt changes in strength or body, and no re-lights or touchups needed. While it did end up a little bitter and spicy at the end, novice smokers should feel no fear with this cigar, as long as it is paired with something to offset the strength at the end, like a nice aged rum. Stout beer would overrun it, as would cask strength scotch or barrel proof bourbon. All in all a great experience that I look forward to trying again!" -Kevin A. (Kevin A.)
"I loved all the warm spices, coco with a slight spiciness in the back of the throat that made me think this would be a great cigar to pair with English Breakfast tea on a cool crisp night. " -Allison T. (The Yoga Ash)

"A cigar I hated to lose in the process of smoking. Great notes of cherry, earth, leather, cocoa, and oak make this a excellent cigar. Great ash that hung on to the cigar for 30 minutes or better. Five or more of these cigar would round out your humidor perfectly." -Sean F. (fullermaine)
"Give me another one of these! This was a solid stick with flavors that I rather enjoy. The middle third was probably the weak spot on this cigar where flavors kind of drowned in themselves and the marshmallow puff. I'm not going to say that portion of the cigar was bad, but it was not the highlight. Fortunately, there's plenty of other things going on in this cigar to make the downsides forgettable. " -Isaac M.

"An extremely earthy and smoky cigar. If you are a fan a sticks with strong mineral and hickory style flavors this should be added to your list to try. While it's not exactly my preferred profile I definitely appreciated the layers of mineral, smoke, and hints of spice." -Lauren S. (Lauren S.)

"At first, I really didn't know if I was going to enjoy this one. The flavors were very good but the finish in the first third was throwing me off. Once the finish settled though, I really enjoyed this one. I'd definitely smoke this one again. The perfect pairing for me would be nice smooth bourbon or dark beer." -James H. (Keikan Jim)
