Crowned Heads Four Kicks Seleccion No. 5 Lancero-Panatela
One of the great aspects of Crowned Heads cigars
is each has a story, even down to individual sizes. So how did the Four Kicks
Seleccion No. 5 come to be? The inspiration for Four Kicks comes from a song by
super-band Kings of Leon. The size was truly inspired: it was simply the 5th
cigar in the line-up! Whatever the lore behind it, the 90-rated Four Kicks
Seleccion No. 5 is a truly great cigar!
The Four Kicks Seleccion No. 5 is a beautifully
crafted 6 ½” x 44 Lonsdale draped with a luscious Ecuadorian Habano wrapper
leaf. Hidden beneath are plush Nicaraguan binder and filler tobaccos which were
blended under the watchful eye of Ernesto Perez-Carrillo and his team at
Tabacalera La Alianza.
The 40 to 50 minute smoke kicks off with a blast
of leather and spice that mingle with a delectably sweet undercurrent. Hints of
pepper, coffee and wood emerge as the Four Kicks Seleccion No. 5 settles into a
smooth, medium-bodied character. A subtle tanginess and splashes of nuts help
the velvety excursion cruise to a most gratifying finale.
The Four Kicks Seleccion No. 5 by Crowned Heads is
a wondrously crafted stick that will please almost any aficionado regardless of
their level of taste or experience, making for a grand everyday selection. No
matter how you look at it, this cigar belongs in your rotation… period!
