Crowned Heads Four Kicks Corona Gorda

Crowned Heads is a brand that was founded by Jon Huber and other former CAO executives. Four Kicks is the first release from the brand, and it gets its name from a Kings of Leon song. Huber said he chose the name because the song spoke to him on a personal level and rang true with all of the turmoil that surrounded his departure from CAO. Ernesto Perez-Carrillo collaborated with the Crowned Heads team to create the Four Kicks, which is significant because it marks the first time he has worked on a contract cigar for a company other than his own.

The Crowned Heads Four Kicks Corona Gorda measures 5 5/8 x 46. Other sizes in the line include the 5 x 50 Robusto, 6 x 54 Sublime, and the 6 1/8 x 52 Piramide. The cigar has a filler and binder made up of Nicaraguan tobacco, while an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper tops it all off. The Four Kicks is manufactured in the Dominican Republic at the Tabacalera La Alianza S.A. factory.

The Crowned Heads Four Kicks’ appearance isn’t the most fancy you will find. That doesn’t mean it’s not a good looking cigar, however. The decorative band near the head stands out with its bright red and gold color scheme. It displays the Four Kicks name and logo in a vintage style. The cigar itself has a reddish-brown wrapper with some oil. There are a few veins throughout the body, but no major imperfections. The cigar is firm to the touch and lacks any soft spots. The pre-light aroma and cold taste are both spicy, which lead me to believe that this stogie may be a little feisty.

Once lit, the Four Kicks Corona Gorda burns without any issues. The draw is just right. There’s plenty of thick smoke and the burn is slow, just like I like it. The burn stays even from beginning to end without the need for touchups. There are also no re-lights. The ash is solid and light gray in color.
