Following up on a tweet sent on August 30th, Crowned Heads has announced plans for a new limited edition cigar that they are calling the ‘Mule Kick’ to be released in early November. Details of this new release were first discussed in this interview on RobbyRasReviews/CigarChat.
According to an article by David Savona, the line was spurred by a batch of wrapper leaf that was too dark for the Four Kicks line. The name comes from an exercise that Ernesto Perez-Carrillo is fond of and showed off for Jon Huber and Mike Conder of Crowned Heads during the recent IPCPR trade show. Perez-Carrillo makes Crowned Heads’ cigars at his Tabacalera La Alianza S.A. factory in Santiago, Dominican Republic.
To accommodate the wrapper difference, Huber said that some stronger ligero was added to the blend. The cigar, whose formal name is the Four Kicks Mule Kick Limited Edition 2012, will be made in one size – 5 7/8 x 52 – and will bear a secondary band that reads “Limited Edition 2012.” MSRP is said to be around $8.95 per cigar, with the cigar packed in ten-count boxes.
