Review: Crowned Heads Four Kicks Seleccion No. 5

I received this cigar as a part of my Secret Santa pack from the December /r/cigars exchange.​

 

Nose:

I picked up earth, some sweet tobacco and hints of cedar.  There wasn't anything else I could detect here.​

 

Construction:

The Four Kicks Seleccion No. 5 is a 6 1/2" x 44 Lonsdale.  There are veins present all throughout the wrapper but they are all flat.  The cigar is triple capped.  The band is quite elegant, sporting a red Four Kicks logo in the middle with a bright gold band.​

 

Flavor:

First

A nice spicy and creamy flavor on the first few draws accented by sweet tobacco.  After about 5 minutes I picked up vanilla and a savory cooked meat flavor.  Not much else in the flavor department but an excellent first third to start.​

Middle

The middle is a combination of rich creamy tobacco with leather hints on the exhale.  The vanilla that was present in the first third is completely gone.   At the halfway point a pleasant earthy flavor as the creaminess starts to drop off.​

Final

The strength of this cigar starts to kick in in the last third.  A rich tobacco flavor with a bit of spice accenting it to finish off the smoking experience.​

Burn/Draw:

The draw was quite tight, but didn't hamper the smoking experience.  Burn is consistently even from start to finish.  Smoking time was about 1 hr and 45 minutes.  ​

Value:

A single of the No. 5 Lonsdale size will run you around $7 - $8.  A 5 pack is about $37 and on special the 24 will run you $156 - $165.  Given the substantial flavor profile the sub $8 price tag puts these in the excellent value.  ​

Final Word:

The Crowned Heads Four Kicks Seleccion No. 5 is an excellent cigar at a very affordable price.  I highly recommend you pick up a single or a 5 pack to try them out for yourself.​
