The Blind Man’s Bluff cigar line is shaping up to be one of the bigger hits from Caldwell. For a company specializing in boutique production, having a hit cigar is simultaneously a goal and at the same time, not really a goal at all. They’re always on to something new, so it’s not critical to anchor on any particular blend. However, some have staying power. They just catch on and there’s nothing to be done but roll up another batch and give the people what they want.
Apparently, the people want Caldwell Blind Man’s Bluff cigars.
This subline is focused on a Maduro wrapper, and the flavors here are quite an interesting bunch. Things start normally enough with the Dominican long-filler tobacco, then become complicated with the addition of an exotic Sumatran binder. This mix is topped off with a dark and oily Pennsylvania Maduro wrapper. This type of leaf isn’t easy to deal with, and so it has to be subdued and matured through an extensive fermentation process. Only then, once a deep brown color and a natural sweetness are present, is it suitable for smoking.
The taste of the Caldwell Blind Man’s Bluff Maduro cigar is really enjoyable, featuring wood, pepper, and a peek-a-boo berry sweetness that you’ll be chasing from beginning to end. For companies that are so often experimenting with new blends like Caldwell, we don’t know how they manage to maintain premium quality through so much distraction, but somehow they do it nearly every time. The Caldwell Blind Man’s Bluff Maduro cigar is another chapter in a growing story of cigar success that we’re fully happy to celebrate along with the rest of the fans out there.
Strap on the blindfold – you don’t need to see to appreciate this one. It’s all there in the smoke.
