Caldwell Long Live The King Maduro
This time around, the Caldwell Long Live the King Maduro cigar has been significantly reworked. We’d consider this one a new blend entirely at this point. The filler blend is made up of Dominican and Nicaraguan Corojo ‘98 and Habano-seed tobacco. There’s also some Pennsylvania double Ligero, so expect potency to be cranked up in this blend. The binder is a fragrant Indonesian leaf, and the outer wrapper is Mexican San Andrés Maduro.
The original Long Live the King blend was mostly Dominican tobacco, but this Mad MoFo is pulling in leaf from all over the world.
It actually doesn’t wind up being a super crazy smoking experience. Instead, it’s a very nice Maduro cigar that doesn’t spring any surprises on you. It’s earthy and sweet, with flavors of black pepper and dark berry. The actually unexpected part of smoking Long Live the King Maduro cigars is the retrohale. It’s a high-quality taste and aroma and you’ll definitely want to give it a shot. For those that have had bad experiences with retrohaling, try to exhale most of a draw out your mouth and blow the thin portion of the rest out your nose. Cigar smoking should never be about tolerating pain or discomfort – this is meant to be a relaxing vice.
Caldwell as usual is hitting the mark with the Mad MF. Maduro fans need to try on the crown for this one – it’s a keeper for sure.
