Founded by Robert Caldwell in 2014, the Caldwell Cigar Company is bursting onto the boutique cigar scene with its four new cigars that premiered just last year at the IPCPR in July 2015. When starting the company, Robert decided that he was going to do things his way and began scouring the world for the best tobacco leaves which he would test over and over again until getting the exact flavors he was looking for — before testing it again. He is so committed to his product that he keeps production limited to ensure that he is delivering a superior product. Currently, Caldwell Cigar Company is based in the Dominican Republic and has built a new factory aptly named the Caldwell Cigar Factory. The cigar in your shipment today is the only cigar out of the four that is being made at the famed Agroindustrias Laepe S.A. in Honduras, the same factory where Camachos are produced. This handmade starts with an alluring Ecuadorian Habano wrapper that secures a refined Honduran Criollo binder and a feisty blend of long-fillers from the Dominican Republic and Honduras. Tasty notes of bread, cedar, and sweet spice combined with a long and cool finish will have you drooling for another. Enjoy this medium to full smoke with a Highland Whisky.
Honduras has been a tobacco growing and cigar manufacturing area for hundreds of years, but it was the Communist revolution in Cuba that really put Honduras on the map. In the 1960s, many Cuban cigar makers fled their homeland and arrived in Honduras to re-establish their way of life. The immigrants took advantage of the climate, soil, and geography, which were well-suited to tobacco growing, and began producing high quality cigars. The center of the Honduran cigar industry is the city of Danli and the nearby Jamastran Valley. The majority of the world’s pure Corojo tobacco is grown here, now that Cuba has stopped production of this iconic, spicy, and rich variety in favor of Corojo hybrids. Other important areas of Honduran cigar production include the Talanga Valley, Copan, and Trojes.
