Caldwell 'Blind Man's Bluff' Toro

Caldwell Blind Man's Bluff cigar 1
Caldwell 'Blind Man's Bluff' Toro. 6x52. Medium brown wrap. Good construction with smoothed leaf ends and mostly subdued veins. Cut and lit well. Easy-medium draw pre- and post-light, getting easier with the burn. 

First half tastes of wheat bread, herbal leaf, mild earthy spice. Aroma is mild leaf with bright herb notes, leather. Second half offers more wood taste with walnut and rounded leaf notes. Mouthfeel is warm and creamy all across, with a gentle wood and spice expression. 

Ash was very clean, nearly all light gray, flaky, blooming and holding over an inch. Burn was uneven at first but was corrected soon after with a secondary light.

This is a superb mild cigar. It's creamy from the start, unlike the recent Connecticut Kreme I had, which needed to burn its way toward an eventual creamy taste. Today's offering was creamy, mildly spicy, with plenty of bready and herbal tones. Well recommended.

Special thanks to Anthony of for providing this cigar. It was my first time having a Caldwell, which is not available in my neck of the woods. I'm definitely going to get another in the future.

From the company:

"Robert Caldwell has burst onto the boutique cigar scene like some sorta supernova, and it seems like there’s no stopping his meteoric rise. You see, he makes cigars his way…he scours farms across the globe for the best tobacco leaves, tests and retests his blends until he gets the exact flavors he’s looking for, and keeps production limited in an effort to deliver a superior product. My word is bond, son, and I’m telling you once you try a Caldwell cigar you will count yourself among his growing legion of fans. Blind Man’s Bluff comes wrapped in an enticing Ecuadorian Habano leaf atop a refined Honduran Criollo binder, long-fillers from the Dominican and Honduras ramp up the intensity. Tasty notes of cedar, bread, and sweet spice all enter the fray with a long and cool finish topping off the experience. Do yourself a favor and pick this sucker up before everyone else beats you to it."
