Caldwell Blind Man's Bluff Connecticut
The first installment in this story was a mix of Dominican and Honduran tobacco that brought out some classic cigar flavors that pretty much anyone could dig. The success of that blend had fans calling for more, and so other versions of the Blind Man’s Bluff cigar were created. This time around, we’re going into something a touch milder, but that still displays ample character.
The Caldwell Blind Man’s Bluff Connecticut cigar starts with Dominican and Honduran leaf as before but then is brought together under a handsome almond-colored Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper. As one might expect, this helps the blend mellow out somewhat, without disappearing into boredom. You get the creamy cedar that the wrapper promises, as well as some nuttiness, but there’s a slightly spicy dried fruit note that reminds you that this is a Blind Man’s Bluff cigar, not a bargain bin mild.
To us, that’s really the main selling point of the Caldwell Blind Man’s Bluff Connecticut cigar. It’s a restrained smoke that’s still complex, and that hits a sweet spot that might appeal to people who don’t always love Connecticut's. If you’ve been looking for a cigar that makes it worth re-evaluating your position, this is definitely the one. It’s a line that’s really shaping up to be something special in years to come, and this is yet another reason to keep it in your humidor.
