"The Caldwell Collection was introduced to critical acclaim in the spring of 2014 and consisted of three distinctive lines of cigars, each using aged and hard-to-find, “Grade A” tobacco, grown in the Dominican Republic and rolled at Tabacalera William Ventura. Unique names and eye-catching artwork were used in debuting the collection—Long Live The King, The King Is Dead, and Eastern Standard. The latter consisted of a Connecticut Hybrid Ecuadorian wrapper, a Habana Dominican binder, and a combination of Ligero, Seco, and Viso filler leaves from Nicaraguan and the Dominican Republic.

"At the recent 2016 IPCPR Trade Show in Las Vegas, in an artsy-looking booth littered with striking graphics and paintings, The Caldwell Collection formally unveiled a line-extension to the Eastern Standard—Midnight Express. According to Robert Caldwell, "Midnight Express is an Eastern Standard Maduro."- www.CigarDojo.com
