A kick in the… uh, palate
The original Four Kicks is a 91-rated bombshell, often used as a shining example of the success of boutique blends. And believe me, it is most delicious, offering up a complex profile of semi-sweet baking spices, nuttiness, and a steady dose of pepper joining a core of creamy goodness. But I’m not here to sing the praises of Four Kicks today. No sir, instead, I’d like to draw your attention to the newest release in a long line of LE’s from Jon Huber — the Four Kicks Mule Kick 2018.
Below the belt, Mule Kick reads the same as the regular line. Nicaraguan binder, check; Nicaraguan filler, check. But up top, the master blender at Crowned Heads has swapped the traditional Ecuadorian Habano wrapper leaf for an oily, thick Connecticut Habano, adding an all new dimension of flavor. Moving a notch up in intensity as well, Mule Kick offers the regular bevy of flavors you’d expect from a Four Kicks in a more concentrated flavor. But be warned – we’re only getting one shipment of these, and once we sell out, it’s over!
