Nikolai II Alexandrovich Romanov, also known as the Last Tsar of Russia, did not come to a nice end. He and his immediate family were all put to death in the Bolshevik Revolution that brought Lenin and the Communist Party to power in the early 1900s. You don’t have to feel too bad for him, though. His mistakes led to countless deaths for his people and others. In fact, his support of Serbia and mobilization of the Russian Army in 1914 was part of what led Germany to declare war on Russia and France, starting the First World War. There were many other complaints against him, including allowing legendary wierdo priest Grigori Rasputin (who was not well liked by the people) to have a big say in policy.
So there’s a little backstory for you. Let’s talk about the cigar, which is a lot more pleasant to deal with.
The Caldwell Last Tsar cigar features an Ecuadorian Connecticut Arapiraca Maduro hybrid leaf for the wrapper. No, we’re not channeling our inner Rasputin and making up some shit to bamboozle you with. The wrapper leaf is a hybrid strain of 1) Connecticut-seed tobacco grown in Ecuador and 2) Arapiraca tobacco grown in Brazil. Then, it’s fermented and aged until it turns a rich shade of brown worthy of the name Maduro, with all the mature flavor you would expect. So that’s how we get that long-ass name. There’s also a scrumptious Dominican binder and filler blend to complete the cigar, resulting in a smoke with woody and nutty flavors and a tangy finish.
