This is possibly one of the best Caldwell releases I have had, and the blend smokes well throughout the line. It is a blend that needs some time aging though and I believe it smokes better after being stored at a lower humidity level.
If you are a big ring gauge fan and loved the line, I would highly recommend it. I smoke smaller ring gauge cigars, but if I am in the mood for a big cigar I would grab one of these. Lots of flavors, complex and balanced.
The mystery of a coffin...not knowing what you'll find inside...the hype of the Liberty line. Let's face it, I was truly looking forward to smoking this one. The 2005 I enjoyed a couple of years ago was pretty darn good.
If you were a fan of the old Cruzado releases, you will find this to be completely different and lacking that quality which you loved in the original Cruzado line. It just lacked that awesome sweet spice from the Criollo tobacco in the original blend.
I can say the cigar has aged quite well. I enjoyed the overall profile, especially with the spice transitions keeping me engaged the entire, long 3 hours. I think the cigar has a lot more legs left, and aging for another few years won't hurt, and hopefully will improve it.
