Fast on the heels of the release of their latest line, the Headley Grange, Crowned Heads released their first limited edition cigar called the Mule Kick for 2012. This new cigar could be called a Four Kicks with a turbo charger. This cigar was born when Ernesto Perez Carrillo, Mike Conder and Jon Huber were discussing what to do with some Ecuadoran Habano wrapper that was too dark for the core Four Kicks line. They decided to use it on a limited edition cigar with the same Four Kicks blend, but with more ligero added. Enter the Mule Kick. Visually, this cigar reminds me a of the EPC Cigars limited editions….which isn’t a bad thing. I really love the darker wrapper and the rich smell I get from the cigar. The cigar burned beautifully and poured a ton of smoke. The cigar had rich flavors of woodiness, nuttiness, nutmeg and a rich, yet mild cocoa flavor. I also got some white pepper in the first part of the cigar that faded, but became a blast of black pepper on the retrohale. As the cigar burned down, the cigar flavors got even more richer. Watch the video for more in depth review of this limited release.
Revisiting the El Rey Del Mundo
At the Gilbertsville Cigar Factory, we’ve been having a slight problem. It has nothing to do with the shop – the trouble is with everyone’s favorite budget cigar. Over the past couple of months the supply of Charter Oak Maduro has stalled and word has been getting around that they may be back-ordered for some […]
Revisiting the Camacho Triple Maduro
In this weeks installment of Look what I bought on Cigar Monster I’d like to take you on a trip down memory lane. Back when Christian Eiroa unleashed on the world a cigar made entirely or Maduro. A cigar that would put hair on your chest and make the ladies swoon – The Camacho Triple […]
Revisiting the CAO America Monument
Over the past couple of weeks I’ve been dabbling in cigars from my past. The most recent of which is the CAO America Monument – a 54 x 6.25 Belicoso that launched way back at the 2007 RTDA (or was it the IPCPR that year?) It’s hard to believe that this cigar was released so […]

Ben – Don’t let them sit–smoke ’em if you got ’em! Tomorrow is never promised, my friend….thank you for smoking.
Good advice Jon!
Great Review Ben, I did a small search for these but didn’t put a ton of effort I know how this Limited stuff works there are people out there who will hord it just cause it says Limited, with that Said, I think everything that CH does is gold so I would like to get my hands on a couple of these bad boys, great review.
Nice Review Ben. I have one of these resting in my humidor. I think I’ll smoke it tomorrow on 12/12/12. I would smoke it tonight but I just had a Aston VSG while watching your review. We have a lot of the same favorites because I too fell in love with the Dark Rituals. Smoked one and then had to find a box. Now I have two left. :-). I enjoyed your reviews on NTA and enjoy your reviews here on SR. Keep it up and Happy Holidays!
Thank Lisette! I appreciate that.
I managed to grab 2 ten count boxes for myself. They still had 9 or so boxes left here in Richmond!
I would grab as many as I could. I can’t find them anywhere.
Nice review Ben. I really love this cigar. I’ve got three left, and I’m pretty sure that they will be gone before the year is finished.
Unfortunately another cigar most of us cant get!
