Gifted by Robert Caldwell, owner of Caldwell Cigars.
Location: This review was made indoors in Mellgrens cigar lounge.
Information: A limited edition release, Caldwell’s Long Live the King Mad Mofo Belicoso begins with a filler blend of Corojo ’98 and PA double ligero fillers, bound in Indonesian leaf, and embraced by a spicy Mexican San Andrés Maduro wrapper.
Size: 5.7×43, Corona.
Wrapper: Dark coffee bean, oily and smooth with tiny veins.
Construction: Firm even feel when lightly squeezed.
Cold draw: Coffee nibs and hay.
1st third: Coffee nibs, oak wood and sweet note of chocolate.
2nd third: Gets a little stronger but keeps it’s taste profile from part 1.
Burn: Firm and stable, white-ish ash.
Smoke: Voluminous white smoke, with a warm feeling on the tongue and a light draw.
3rd third: Goes back to the same strength level as the first part, otherwise the same flavour profile all the way.
Duration: 14:50-15:55, 1h 5 min.
Conclusion: A medium to full bodied cigar, with a medium strength profile.
Result: In my book this is an 89 point cigar.
