Cigar Review: Caldwell Lost & Found One Hit Wonder
Review by Luc Blanchard, Official MMC Reviewer (@mysticks35mm)
Caldwell - Lost & Found One Hit Wonder
Size: Corona 5 x43
Wrapper – Dominican (H-92)
Bakers spice (cloves)
On the nose a pre light aroma of mild hay meets the olfactory. This well constructed cigar is covered in a slightly oily, minimally veined and modeled wrapper (some areas of prominent bumps from the binder and press). A straight cut offers an open draw on this corona beauty from the December My Monthly Cigars Box #43.
Getting to the 2/3 maker and the burn is fantastic, offering a marbled dark and medium ash growing at the end of a razor thin ash fringe. Although mild+, the body and richness is full. Primary notes of that floral and leather join with a growing baker's spice of cloves. The finish is the focal point and offers a toasted sugar on the mouth.
Into the final 3/3 and still consistent with the addition of some pepper and a general increase in strength to medium. The nub offers some more strength and a toasted value although quite delicate. A fantastic and Uber flavorful journey from meek and delicate beginners to a truly rich and poignant finish that lasts forever on the pallet. Hats off to the rollers/blenders of Caldwell Cigars.
