As people, we all adhere to normalcy. From what we eat and drink, to running around like mindless ants to get to where we're going. We're all victims of 'normal'. But at the end of the day, normal can get boring, fast. That's where cigar companies like Crowned Heads come into play. Influenced by the edgy, rebellious, and determined lyrics of the band, Kings of Leon, Crowned Heads goes against the programming of everyday handmades. Without further adieu, enter their first creation, Four Kicks cigars. Their motto is simple, yet loud and clear. Stick to who you are, stay loyal to those you care about, and never forget where you came from.
Crafted under the watchful eye of E.P. Carrillo in the Dominican, Four Kicks brings the substance in spades. At first glance, it's easy to think of this is as a powerhouse cigar. But a closer look reveals a medium-bodied cigar bursting with flavor. It all starts with a smooth, reddish-brown Ecuador Habano wrapper. This leaf is seamlessly applied to a core of Nicaraguan long-fillers hugged by a Nicaraguan binder. From the first puff, the senses are met with a wave of chewy, spicy-sweet flavors. Nuts, leather, and a steady dose of pepper join forces with creamy, cedary undertones. There's a lot going on, but one thing is for sure. It works, and works well. Complex, interesting, and one eye-catching handmade, this should be on your to try list.
Four Kicks already caught the eye of critics earning a 91-rating in the process, noting: "There is a significant earthy character to this smoke, balanced by a sweet and spicy component and a black pepper finish."
“Wow! I describe four kicks as a "new classic." Medium in body with an explosion of flavor and complexity from beginning to end. Heavy in the hand and stuffed with tobacco, yet the draw is excellent and cool down to the very end! Truly Cubanesque in every aspect! I don't see how one can enjoy cigars and not love Four Kicks! Definitely the cigar of the year!”

“Just finished my first Four Kicks. Started out incredibly smooth and creamy with cool smoke. Half way through it stayed smooth with small bits a pepper. Past the band it got very earthy and spicy. Very good smoke overall. I really enjoyed it. I had the Headley Grange earlier today and that was brilliant. Crowned Heads really has the right idea and is busting out awesome products!”
