Crowned Heads gets a black belt
Back in 2010, four former CAO employees started a little boutique brand known as Crowned Heads, led by Jon Huber. Their first blend, Four Kicks, was a huge success, and now they’ve re-blended the original release with master blender Ernesto Perez-Carrillo Jr. Offered up in the same four sizes as the original Four Kicks release, this darker retelling of the Crowned Heads story is most certainly worth checking out.
It all starts with a toothy and rustic Connecticut Habano maduro wrapper leaf that gives off tons of cocoa and chocolate aromas as soon as you remove the cellophane. Toasting Four Kicks Maduro up, you’ll find those chocolatey notes in spades, backed by creaminess, and a nice core of toasty, natural tobaccos flavors. Never inching all the way into the “full-bodied” category, this cigar is a perfect choice for all-day enjoyment.
Good news! Four Kicks Maduro has earned a well-deserved 90-point rating, noting: "Enrobed in a dark and oily wrapper, this slim cigar delivers notes of almond, coffee and wood interwoven with pleasant touches of cocoa and herbs. A bold cigar."
