Crowned Heads has announce details for the latest version of their limited edition Four Kicks Mule Kick cigar, and for the first time, will be shown off at the PCA trade show. Another first, the blend has been updated from the previous 6 releases, now using Dominican tobaccos in place of some that were previously Nicaragua.
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.
The first cigar ever released from Crowned Heads was the Four Kicks, back in 2011. Jon Huber turned to E.P. Carrillo to make the cigar, and this is where he turns again to make the latest in the line: Four Kicks Capa Especial.
For the cigars nerds of the world, the Lancero vitola holds a special place of reverence. If you also happen to be a fan of Crowned Heads Cigars, you will rejoice at the arrival of the new Four Kicks Maduro Lancero LE. The lancero format gives the smoker less filler and more flavor from the wrapper. The smaller ring gauge tends to excite seasoned cigar smokers since it was conceived at the El Laguito factory in Havana back in the 1960s.

"Not an enjoyable cigar. Oily wrapper that burns the cigar quickly. Uneven burn with multiple touch-ups. Rough draw in some spots. The only good thing was the flavor notes. Notes of salt, chocolate, hickory, and bitter tea. Nice grey ash that holds on for about an inch. Not a cigar I'd want to try again." -Sean F. (fullermaine)

"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)
Crowned heads released the original Mule Kick in 2012 and was their first limited edition cigar. The cigar featured a higher priming Habano wrapper than the standard line and a tweaked blend. Only 5000 were made on the first release. The original blend was released again as a 2017 limited edition then a new blend in 2018 that used a Connecticut Habano Maduro wrapper.
Crowned Heads will be going North. The Nashville based cigar company has formed a distribution agreement with Brigham Enterprises, Inc. Jericho Hill, Le Carême, and Four Kicks are slated to be the first offerings released in Canada by Brigham Enterprises, Inc. These are scheduled to release in May 2018.
