Four Kicks Capa Especial Águilas LE 2021 Ships next month
Last year Crowned Heads released the Four Kicks Capa Especial – a blend originally created in 2011 and considered for its first Four Kicks line – now another cigar from this era is slated for its official debut.
It’s called the Four Kicks Capa Especial Águilas LE 2021, a 5 1/2 x 50 figurado. Like the Capa Especial mix, its roots go back to summer 2011. By this time, Crowned Heads as a company had been announced. , but she was still working with Ernesto Perez-Carrillo Jr. to finalize her first mix. There were three mixes in consideration: two that used habano wrap and one that used Ecuadorian wrap from Sumatra. Eventually, Crowned Heads chose one of the Habano blends, although Perez-Carrillo Jr. preferred the Sumatran blend, which became the Capa Especial line.
While working on the mixes, Perez-Carrillo Jr. gifted Jon Huber, co-founder of Crowned Heads, a one-size-fits-all Sumatran mix. He called him Águilas because it was close to the same shape as the Cuban Romeo y Julieta Águilas, an abandoned vitola. Technically, the Romeo y Julieta measures 143mm, a bit longer than the cigar launched by Crowned Heads.
Huber has never smoked this cigar, but the company plans to release a version next month. It will have an MSRP of $ 10.95 per cigar and is limited to 3,000 boxes of 12 cigars.
It uses the same blend as the rest of the Capa Especial line: an Ecuadorian Sumatran wrap on a Nicaraguan binder and loads from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua.
