Happy 2012 everybody! To celebrate the start of the New Year I wanted to feature the cigar that I'm most excited about for this year which is the Crowned Heads Four Kicks Robusto in a 5x50 vitola. Crowned Heads is a new cigar company created by Jon Huber, Nancy Heathman, Mike Conder, Michael Trebing and company after the sale of CAO Cigars last year. Their first release is the Four Kicks. Hailing from Tabacalera LaAlianza S.A. in the Dominican Republic it features an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper with it's binder and fillers coming from Nicaragua. You get an earthy and woody core that is complemented by sweet spicy flavor notes that is well balanced and complex. I can't wait to fire up many of these throughout the New Year!
