On November 20, 2012, Crowned Heads released a limited extension to the Four Kicks brand, “Mule Kick LE 2012,” that featured a higher priming Habano wrapper and a slightly altered Four Kicks blend. Despite a very small production (5,000 cigars), Mule Kick garnered the attention of the global cigar cognoscenti and quickly became sought-after by enthusiasts around the world.
That original Mule Kick blend would be re-released in 2017, and then again in 2018 and 2019 featuring Connecticut Habano Maduro and Ecuador Sumatra wrappers respectively. Today, Crowned Heads is proud to announce “Four Kicks Mule Kick LE 2020.” The Mule Kick LE 2020 features the same binder/filler combination as previous renditions, but is finished with an attractive Nicaraguan (Jalapa) wrapper. “The wrapper we’ve selected to utilize on the Mule Kick 2020 is very special,” commented Crowned Heads co-founder, Jon Huber. “I first experienced this leaf on a cigar in 2016 that Ernesto (Perez-Carrillo) gave me to try at that year’s IPCPR trade show and I immediately was impressed; that cigar would eventually be released later as the EPC Encore line. We went on to use this wrapper on a 2017 limited edition (Paniolo Especiale 2017) and I’m very excited to once again feature it on this year’s Mule Kick LE.”
Total production of Four Kicks Mule Kick LE 2020 will be limited to 2500 (10-count) boxes, and will have an MSRP of $11.25 per cigar. Manufactured at Tabacalera La Alianza, S.A. (Santiago, Dominican Republic), under the supervision of Ernesto Perez-Carrillo, Mule Kick LE 2020 will begin shipping in July.
