Caldwell Cigars Eastern Standard Maduro Midnight Express in Corona - Cigar Review Redux by Kaplowitz

"Why not Kaplowitz?"


I originally reviewed this offering in text/audio: Caldwell Cigars Eastern Standard Maduro Midnight Express in Corona - Cigar Review by Kaplowitz. Also: Caldwell is a sponsor of K/M. A final thing: have you bought yer OFFICIAL KAPLOWITZ MEDIA TSHIRT YET? (The caps lock segment of the previous sentence is a link to where ya can pick it up.)

K.

& I lied about the whole "final" thing. Lemme just remind ya about September being right around the corner & beseech ya to read the Official Kaplowitz Media 3rd Anniversary Events Guide/Index.
