Crowned Heads will be releasing the fourth installment of its limited edition Four Kicks Mule Kick series. This cigar will be the first in the Four Kicks Mule Kick LE 2019 series to feature an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper.
Mule Kick is an LE that holds a special place in all our hearts,” commented Crowned Heads co-founder Jon Huber in a press release. “We’re always looking towards not necessarily re-inventing the wheel, but how can we innovate and improve upon existing ideas. I’ve always maintained that Ernie (Ernesto Perez-Carrillo Jr.) is the master of Sumatra wrapper and once we smoked the samples, we immediately knew that the Sumatra wrapper added another dimension of flavor and layer of complexity to the Mule Kick blend.”
The remainder of the blend consists of Nicaraguan tobaccos that are a slightly modified blend of the original Crowned Heads Four Kicks Mule Kick 2012 release.
The cigar will be a 5 7/8 x 52 Toro release presented in ten-count boxes. Production is limited to 2,500 boxes. As with previous Mule Kick releases, the cigar is produced at Perez-Carrillo’s Tabacalera La Alianza in the Dominican Republic.
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. Last year, the company switched gears and released the Four Kicks Mule Kick LE 2018 with a Connecticut Habano wrapper.
