Crowned Heads announced it is releasing the third installment of its Four Kicks Mule Kick LE 2012. This year, the Mule Kick gets a twist, as it will feature a different wrapper.
When Mule Kick was first released in 2012, it featured the same blend that was used on Crowned Head’s inaugural release, Four Kicks – but it added a darker priming Ecuadorian Habano wrapper. The Four Kicks Mule Kick Limited Edition 2012 had a limited production of 5,000 cigars and achieved a cult following. Five years later, the company re-released the cigar as the Four Kicks Mule Kick Limited Edition 2017.
The Four Kicks Mule Kick Limited Edition 2018 utilizes a dark Connecticut Habano wrapper – something that was released on the Four Kicks Maduro. The remainder of the Mule Kick Limited Edition 2018 blend are the same components found in the previous two installments of the Mule Kick.
“Anytime you attempt to improve upon something that’s already well-regarded can be a slippery slope,” commented Crowned Heads co-founder, Jon Huber in a press release. “We could’ve easily re-released the OR Mule Kick blend again; however, we wanted to take it to another level. When we added the Connecticut (Habano) wrapper to the blend, we collectively agreed that it just truly added another dimension of structure, flavor, and intensity that surpassed the OR.”
The 2018 Mule Kick will once again be produced at Ernesto Perez-Carrillo Jr’s Tabacalera La Alianza factory. It will be packaged in 10-count boxes with a total of 3,000 boxes produced. Shipping will begin this April.
