Quick Smoke: Crowned Heads Four Kicks Selección No. 5

2 Sep 2012



Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”

This spring, a fifth size was added to the Crowned Heads line: a lonsdale (6.5 x 44) simply called Selección No. 5. Made at Ernesto Perez-Carrillo’s Tabacalera La Alianza S.A. in the Dominican Republic, it utilizes a reddish-brown Ecuadorian Habano wrapper and Nicaraguan binder and filler. Like other Four Kicks I’ve smoked, construction was flawless. The cigar starts out with spice and wood, but near the halfway point transitions into a rich combination of molasses and leather. This might be my favorite size in the Four Kicks series as the smaller ring gauge really lets the complexity of the blend shine through.

Verdict = Buy.
