Four Kicks, the first cigar from boutique cigarmaker Crowned Heads LLC, is heading to limited numbers of cigar stores this week. “The shipment has left Santiago,” said Jon Huber, adding the cigars were due to arrive in Crowned Heads’ Nashville, Tennessee, headquarters today. “We will begin shipping to our retailers as soon as we receive.”
Huber said cigar shops will start getting them at the end of the week.
Cigar Insider broke the story on August 4 about Crowned Heads pairing with cigarmaker Ernesto Perez-Carrillo to make Four Kicks, a cigar blended from Nicaraguan binder, Nicaraguan filler and Ecuadoran Habano wrappers.
Crowned Heads was formed in February by a team formerly with C.A.O. International Inc.: Huber, Mike Conder, Michael Trebing and Nancy Heathman.
