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.

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 […]
