Not your standard Habano
Caldwell Cigar Company has gained a lot of steam in the boutique cigar game in the past couple years. They pay close attention to every detail and it shows in the quality of their cigars. One of their finest blends? The Connecticut wrapped, 91-rated Eastern Standard. At the 2018 IPCPR show Caldwell debuted his second extension of the Eastern Standard line – Eastern Standard Habano.
It comes dressed in a hybrid Mexican Habano wrapper overtop an Ecuadorian binder and long-fillers from the Dominican Republic and Mexico. It comes in 4 sizes that all slightly differ from the original Eastern Standard and each one excels at showcasing its intricate flavor profile. You’ll be met with notes of dark chocolate, coffee, hay and a hint of cinnamon and black pepper in a medium to full-bodied format. Caldwell’s quality standards are extremely high, you can’t go wrong with a box of these beauties.
