The Four Kicks Mule Kick is back, but with a different wrapper choice.

Crowned Heads has announced that the 2019 version of the Four Kicks Mule Kick, a 5 7/8 x 52 robusto extra, will use the same binder and filler blend as previous releases, but this year will use an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper.

Previous versions have used Ecuadorian habano and Connecticut habano wrappers.

“Mule Kick is an LE that holds a special place in all our hearts,” said Jon Huber, co-founder of Crowned Heads, 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.”

Production is limited to 2,500 boxes of 10 cigars. Pricing is set at $10.95 per cigar.

Crowned Heads says Mule Kick 2019 will begin shipping in March.
