The Crowned Heads Four Kicks Maduro Lancero LE 2018, a cigar that was originally offered at the 2018 Tobacconist Association of America (TAA) Convention this past April, will have a more widespread launch. Today the Nashville Tennessee based company announced the cigar will now be featured at the 2018 IPCPR Trade Show in Las Vegas slated to open on July 14th in Las Vegas.
“It was difficult keeping this one quiet since its debut at the TAA Show; however, we wanted our TAA supporters to enjoy some time with this release before we made it available worldwide,” commented Crowned Heads founder Jon Huber in a press release.
Consistent with the Four Kicks Maduro line, the cigar is produced at Ernesto Perez-Carrillo Jr’s Tabacalera La Alianza factory in the Dominican Republic. Perez-Carrillo Jr. is not known to produce many lanceros, but has done several for Crowned Heads including the Headley Grange Drumstick, J.D. Howard Reserve Single Action, and the shop exclusive Four Kicks H-Town Lancero for Stogies of Houston. Crowned Heads has used the lancero size for more limited releases. According to the company, the Four Kicks Maduro Lancero is a one time release.
The Four Kicks Maduro Lancero is the fifth vitola to be introduced in the line. Four Kicks Maduro made its debut last year and it features a Connecticut Habano wrapper over Nicaraguan binder and filler.
Meanwhile, the TAA retailers who ordered the Four Kicks Maduro Lancero will begin receiving shipments this week.
