News: Crowned Heads to Release Limited Edition ‘Mule Kick’

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.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
