The sixth edition of the Four Kicks Mule Kick is heading to stores.

This year’s version, the Four Kicks Mule Kick Limited Edition 2022, is the first one to use a Mexican San Andrés wrapper. Like previous releases, it is a 5 7/8 x 52 robusto extra.

Mule Kick was first released in 2012, described as a tweaked version of the original Mule Kick line blend that used a darker version of the Ecuadorian habano wrapper normally used. Since then, it’s gone on to feature a variety of different wrappers including Connecticut habano, Ecuadorian Sumatran, Nicaraguan and now Mexican San Andrés. Like the regular Four Kicks line, it is made at Tabacalera La Alianza S.A. in the Dominican Republic.

This year’s release has an MSRP of $11.95 per cigar and is limited to 4,000 boxes of 10 cigars.

“We’re very excited to be bringing back the Mule Kick brand after a two year hiatus,” said Jon Huber, co-founder of Crowned Heads, in a press release in March. “We began working on this rendition late last year with Ernesto Perez-Carrillo and quickly discovered that the Mexican San Andrés wrapper really complemented the Mule Kick blend; it lended (sic) a unique taste profile to the cigar that is unlike any previous Mule Kick version. The 2022 Mule Kick is impeccably balanced with great structure, and exhibits a nice smokey-spicy-sweet flavor profile.”
