What happens when you have some extra darker Ecuadorian Habano wrapper leaf sitting around and aging in your warehouse?  You come out with the new Four Kicks Mule Kick Limited Edition 2012, that’s what.  The Mule Kick is a limited edition release of 500 boxes of 10 cigars per box.

The Crowned Heads is a company that never ceases to amaze me when it comes to creativity in the cigar industry.  Whether it is through their marketing, or their amazing products that they put out, they are always cutting edge, and looking to make something that people will enjoy.  The Four Kicks Mule Kick did not disappoint.

I had the privilege of smoking the prototype blend for this cigar one day when I was on one of my many trips to The Crowned Heads headquarters located here in Nashville, TN.  I was impressed by the prototype, and told Jon that I really thought this was a great cigar, a little later, he told me it was going to be their limited edition stick for 2012.

The look of the final release cigar is a dark and oily wrapper.  The cigar features two bands, one being the Four Kicks, with the second denoting that it is limited edition.  The cigar also features a very finely done triple cap.

Flavor wise, this cigar is excellent.  If you liked the Four Kicks, think of this as a little stronger, little bit more peppery, and creamier version.  This cigar did feature some woody and cocoa flavors as well.

Burn was perfect for me.  No touch ups were required over the course of this smoke.  The ash held tight throughout smoking, only falling when ashed.  The smoke itself was thick and white.

Would I buy a box?  I did, and not just because it’s a limited edition, and not just because Jon and Mike are friends of mine.  I do want to support my friends in the business, and I do enjoy buying limited edition products, but what I love even more, are great cigars!  Four Kicks Mule Kick will be the fourth cigar released in The Crowned Heads wheelhouse.
