You can’t keep a good blend down, and the original Caldwell The T was just too tasty to ignore. So this time it’s back for more with an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper to change things up and give you a whole new flavor profile.
The first Caldwell The T blend was a Maduro cigar that went heavy on the earthy, dark flavors. This Connecticut version is far lighter, offering a much more refined smoke while still keeping true to some of the tobacco that made the first blend popular.
Again, we’re rolling up Nicaraguan tobacco for the interior blend, straight from the farms of A.J. Fernandez, one of the three “trilaborators” on this line of cigars. Abdel, who seems to be a part of half the cool boutique cigars on the market today, provides the leaf (and the rollers), while the blending and other tasks were handled by Robert Caldwell and Matt Booth. You may know Booth from his Room101 cigars brand, which produced 90+ rated hit smokes in the Farce and Hit&Run lines.
This is the milder side of these modern cigar mavericks.
Caldwell The T Connecticut cigars are chill, producing mild-medium strength smoke that tastes lightly of pepper and dry cedar, with a hint of something like banana bread or another easygoing bakery food in there. It’s an agreeable cigar that keeps things relaxing. Nothing too bold or crazy.
The original blend was going to be named “The Truth.” If that potent cigar was a hard truth that hits you right in the chest, this one is the kind of truth that’s easy to accept. Connecticut fans will find it straightforward and gratifying.
