Crowned Heads Four Kicks robusto

After the merger of ST Group and Swedish Match, CAO undertook dramatic changes.  Most of the employees where let go and the company headquarters was moved from Nashville, TN to Richmond, VA.  A few of the employees from the old CAO didn’t want to accept these changes so they left and formed Crowned Heads.  Jon Huber, Mike Conder and Michael Trebing decided to make Crowned Heads a company that makes quality, relationships and integrity their foundation.  When the Four Kicks was announced by Jon on Twitter, the buzz was deafening.  I immediately ordered two boxes from Buckhead Cigars in Atlanta, GA.  They both arrived a couple of weeks ago to my delight.  Made by Ernesto Perez Carillo, the cigar has an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper along with Nicaraguan binder and filler and made at Tabacalera LaAlianza S.A., Santiago, Dominican Republic.  So did the cigar live up to the hype or was it four kicks to the teeth?  Watch the video and find out.

Great review, Ben. I pretty much agree with you across the board on this one…utterly fantastic cigar.

And thanks for the shoutout…my interview with Jon can be found here:

Also, if anyone’s having trouble finding these still, Wes at the Downtown Chattanooga location of Burns Tobacconist has them available (Robusto & Sublime only). Hit him up on Twitter: @cigarwes or @burnsdowntown

Great review Ben! Right on the money. The best way to describe this smoke is just “good”. I love a great medium body smoke with a little sweetness to it and this one is that to the Tee. It’s a must have for sure. I’ve had them at my store (Burns Tobacconist Downtown for a couple weeks now and have burned through just about a box myself. I still have 2 or 3 boxes left of robusto and sublime. Happy to ship to wherever. Just call 423.267.7740 or find me on twitter: @CigarWes or @BurnsDowntown

Burn Tobacconist is a GREAT shop as well. Call up Wes and order some! He will treat you right.

Great write up,I can’t find these local but I will have to try these one day, the Band looks awesome. Keep up the great work
