Caldwell Cigar Co. The Last Tsar in Churchill - Cigar Review Redux by Kaplowitz

"Have you Kaplowitz'd to-day?"


Caldwell Last Tsar
WRAPPER: Hybrid Connecticut Arapiraca Maduro
BINDER: Undisclosed
FILLER: Undisclosed

FORMAT: Churchill Pig-tail
ORIGIN: Dominican Republic
STRENGTH: Medium

NOTES: Inherently sweet overtones w/ tangy traces. Car-a-mel, milk chocolate, toasted cream, diner loaded cup joe, Tang. Leathery tobacco-forward notes coming from a loosening thus further and further reaching core. Vegetal freshness in the undertones. A tingly trip to the produce section.

Heavy mid-point transition in which buttery cedar drives the rest home. Finish is a salted cashew butter of a moderate length thing. Burn jags a self-correcting tick, draw is a tick hesitant, liking to be double-puffed. 

FINAL GRADE: B+
A 90-100 B 80-89 C 70-79 D 60-69 F 0-59

This is a redux (see title) See original review:
Caldwell Cigar Co. The Last Tsar - Cigar Review


Since 2015, Kaplowitz Media, with myself as its sole content creator, has been a cigar-centric internet oasis of quasi-intellectual reviews (an archive of ~600 in written & audio form as of June 2018) & educational information (infotainment). This proverbial plethora of infotainment is disseminated to Gentlepersons in some two dozen countries to the tune of a monthly readership I shall boast to you of privately IF YOU'D LIKE TO SPONSOR ME. All this via expertly researched and wonderfully written writings & perfectly produced podcasts.

Simply put, Kaplowitz Media has become somewhat of a trusted source w/ a growing cult following. K/M is steak. K/M is sizzle. Yet strangely, K/M is raw. #DIY & yet again & strangely too, quite beautiful and technically sound.
