Fixing what’s not broken.
If you were following the coverage of the 2019 IPCPR Trade Show, the biggest event in the US for cigar manufacturers, you may have heard that Caldwell had a little secret. He remained pretty tight-lipped about it, and only a handful of people in the industry knew what that would be. Well now the curtain has been lifted, and Caldwell is showing off their latest creation, one that’s not even made by Caldwell in the first place.
Collaboration is important in the cigar industry, and so is tasting what the other guys are producing. So when AJ Fernandez lit up a King is Dead, he got some ideas of what he would do different with the blend. It’s not that there was anything wrong with it, on the contrary, it’s an excellent cigar. But AJ felt that it deserved a Nicaraguan interpretation, a re-working of the blend using all limited Nicaraguan wrapper. The maduro wrapper and aged filler blend produce a full-bodied profile that stays true to the original, but provides an entirely new experience with spicy, earthy notes of leather and cedar. Since the tobaccos used are fairly rare even for the boutique cigar maker, they won’t be around for long. So grab a box and experience the melding of two of the greatest minds in cigars!
