Crowned Heads Four Kicks Robusto Cigar Review

This 5×50 stick features a dark brown firm soft wrapper with minimal veins, tight invisible seams, triple cap and musty chocolate hay aroma. First light reveals a slightly snug draw with good smoke output showing mild-medium smooth thick dry deep earthy flavor with a short clean finish. The first third is very similar, keeping the body level adding a bit more creamy texture on the draw and a little zing on the tip of the tongue through the finish. Getting to the band just 30 minutes in, the ash holds on to the 1/2 way point and flavors remain the same, with perfect construction. Ending 45 minutes in the last inch got very warm, shifting flavors to a soft nuttiness with a longer smooth finish. Thank you very much to Kyle Binkley for sending this sample in for review!

    I was always curious about this brand. Do you know if they make a full bodied blend?

    • kb9311 says:

      Not completely full bodied, their headley grange which got#24 in 2012 on CA’ s top list is similar to this with some more complexity and a solid medium to border line full. Their new JD HOWARD RESERVE comes out it July-August and may offer more of a fuller profile. http://www.crownheads.com for some more info.

        Great! Thanks for the insight! I checked the website and seen they have one titled; Mule Kick – Limited Edition, it’s supposed to be a stronger blend as well. I just might have to give them a try.

        • kb9311 says:

          Yay, unfortunately that was a limited release, it was a four kicks on steroids kinda flavor and won’t be made or sold ever again :( sad because I only got two and smoked them both…they were awesome!

  4. Dirk says:

    Thanks for the info. I have never seen these.. I am curious.. for 5 bucks a stick.. how do they stack up against a Padron 3000?

  5. kb9311 says:

    Bryan, thanks for reviewing this stick was always curious what you would get from it! It’s my go to treat in any size their headley grange is also nice! These guys are class acts as well very sociable with their customers! I love the smooth wood, earth, and creamyness this stick stick offers. Thanks again.

    I have one in my humidor that I got free with a order from famous smoke. Might have to try it soon.

  7. HerbalJedi says:

    Never seen these, is there a better market on the east coast. But it sounds great, might have to pick one up.

  8. Craig says:

    I would definitely try them for that price based on your review. Now just finding them.

  9. rockjock says:

    “Plain” can be good as you said sometimes.

  10. MaxDuo says:

    Sounds like a good cigar to have between the really awesome ones. (I don’t mean in a day…. but if you alternate between an awesome smoke then a decent smoke a few days later like I do to conserve the cash I need for paying off loans and etc etc). Sort of wish the flavors were more like that scent of the cigar, always love when you can get some chocolate and sweetness in the stick.

  11. garlar10 says:

    Looks like a winner. I haven’t tried any crowned head cigars yet but hopefully that will change soon.

  12. Dylan says:

    Feels like a, “buy a box, not a single,” kind of venture to give them a try. “can’t go wrong,” kind of stick.
    p.s. way to rock the chest hair, Bryan.

  13. TimB says:

    I have not seen this one sounds like a morning smoke.Price is right.

  14. mrdaveii says:

    I always keep a few of these in my humidor for when I want to smoke but do not necessarily want to focus on the stick. In my opinion these are great for ANY mood your in….I guess except for an adventurous mood.

  15. vscarpine says:

    Sound pretty good and for the price its worth a try

  16. BCamara says:

    Nice, I just received one in the mail yesterday in Corona Gorda. I can’t wait til I light it up in a few weeks. It’ll be my first from Crowned Head Cigars.

  17. Chaz says:

    Totally agree with your review, as usual. I have always thought these were very solid, but nothing mind blowing. You read some of the reviews from when they first came out and you would think they were sprinkled with pixie dust or something…

    Nice that prices are coming down though… good straight shooter to keep around.

    Thanks for this review Bryan, never heard of these before, but I don’t think I’ll be trying any soon. Mild flavors and ones I don’t like, doesn’t sound like it’s for me. Thanks for saving me money again Bryan.
