Robert Caldwell has said, very seriously, “The purpose of Caldwell Cigars is to go wherever we must to find the most exotic flavors we can. The Caldwell Collection is made up of a number of very unique brands that utilize these premium rare tobaccos.” From the mouths of lesser brands, I’d mock this, but Caldwell is the real deal. This boutique brand does everything they can to find the best tobaccos available, and that’s on full display with the fantastic Long Live the King cigars.
With a blend of long-fillers from The Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, and Peru, this blend surely utilizes some rare leaves. The other cigars in the Caldwell Collection are mellow, but this one takes a medium to full-bodied approach. Your palate will be instantly greeted with notes of earth, oak, dark chocolate, and hints of black pepper. It’s a demanding and satisfying cigar that you’ll want to give your full attention too. Long Live the King may be the best Caldwell cigar to date.
Good news! Long Live the King has earned a well-deserved 91-point rating, noting: “Rolled with a pigtail cap, this toro draws and burns evenly, imparting a cedary, leathery smoke that hints of cashew and leads to a tangy finish.”
