Next week, Crowned Heads will ship an exclusive size of its Four Kicks line to the Casa de Montecristo retail stores around the country.
The Four Kicks No. 7 is a 5 1/4 x 54 double robusto that features a pigtail and closed foot. It uses the same blend as the regular Four Kicks, though it becomes the first vitola to use a closed foot. That means an Ecuadorian habano wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and Nicaraguan fillers.
It will be sold exclusively through the chain of Casa de Montecristo retail stores around the country. Casa de Montecristo is owned by Tabacalera USA, the same parent company as Altadis U.S.A., which Crowned Heads has also collaborated with in the past.
MSRP is set at $9.50 per cigar and the cigar will be offered in boxes of 21.
“I am excited to partner with both Jon and Mike on Four Kicks No.7. The cigar has the flavor profile of the original Four Kicks, but we were able to add a different look and feel to the cigar,” said Brad Winstead, ceo of Casa de Montecristo, in a press release. “Anytime you can team-up with great people and the outcome is an exclusive offering into your store, it’s a win.”
Four Kicks was the debut line from Crowned Heads, first introduced in 2011.
There are 28 Casa de Montecristo locations across 11 states and the District of Columbia, some of which are owned by Tabacalera USA while others are franchise locations.
