Four Kicks by Crowned Heads (robusto)

I'm a little late getting this post up, but better late than never!

I've been wanting to smoke this cigar for some time now, yet I kept finding others to smoke first.  This is a boutique cigar label that had generated some buzz several months back.  It was early in the day, so I decided to pair my cigar with black coffee.  I used a V cut, and my usual method of lighting with a torch. 

On the light, some mild pepper to get me started off.

1/3: The first flavor that I recognize easily is wood.  An inch or so into it, and I've got a little bit of irritation on the back of my throat.  Medium strength cigar, I think.

2/3: The volume of smoke has been pretty decent.  The cigar is mellow and enjoyable.  Although the flavors don't exactly jive with the Curivari smokes, for some reason this cigar reminds me of them.  Maybe it's because there was some hype ahead of trying it for myself, but like the Curivari, it's nothing all that special to me.  I'd smoke more, but doubt I'd ever be saying to myself, "Damn!  I sure have a taste for a Four Kicks!"  Anyways.....on with my notes.

3/3: The strength has increased slightly - no big surprise here.  Not a lot of flavor variation in this one.  In the final third, there's a hint of charred flavor.

This smoke was decent.  Just decent.  It didn't wow me, but I was a little surprised to see that it took me nearly 1.5 hours to smoke.
