According to a press release sent over by Caldwell Cigars this morning the company is set to mark their one year anniversary with the debut of their first limited edition cigar.
The project has been in the works since the fall of 2014 and is now in its final stages as they are aging in the Dominican Republic and will be shipped this May. As of press the project does not have a name, instead it is being referred to by the code name “Nothing You Ever Heard Of.”
The cigars will be a very small run of 500; 10 Count Boxes and will not exceed 49 merchants nationwide. The group is being initiated by Caldwell as the “First 49” which is in reference to the first 49 retailers to support the venture.
The first limited edition will be in a Bellicoso format with plans to release the limited edition twice a year with each release being a different vitola. The cigars which are made at Tabacalera William Ventura in the Dominican Republic utilities a hybrid Connecticut Arapiraca Natural Maduro wrapper.
According to Robert Caldwell, “They are going to be the fullest bodied cigar in the Caldwell Collection, yet palatable for most smokers.”
