From beginning to end, the cigar had a great draw and it was not too loose or tight. As mentioned earlier, this is a well rolled cigar and that shows in the draw. It smoked naturally slow, so you really got to enjoy the tobaccos in the blend and experience the flavors.
This is possibly one of the best Caldwell releases I have had, and the blend smokes well throughout the line. Whether you go for a smaller or larger ring gauge, the flavors generated are complex and possess a great bit of depth. There is transitioning from beginning to end and it is a flavor focused cigar. I would love to know the tobaccos in the blend, I am not even going to try guessing, but not knowing is part of the enjoyment. It is a blend that needs some time aging though and I believe it smokes better after being stored at a lower humidity level. It may not be a cigar that really speaks to that everyday American smoker, but it is a cigar that speaks to a cigar connoisseur. I know, that may offend some people but I don’t care. Some cigars are meant to be made for the serious smokers.
