The latest from Caldwell Cigar Co. has arrived in stores.
The Last Tsar—once codenamed Nothing You Ever Heard Of—is a 5 x 50 belicoso using a “hybrid Connecticut Arapiraca maduro wrapper.” The first run is limited to 500 boxes of 10 cigars and the company is limiting the number of retailers that even have access to the cigar.
Only 49 retailers, known as the First 49, were able to purchase the cigar. Those accounts were able to purchase 10 boxes per store with launch partners having access to 30 boxes. Launch events took place last week and now the cigars are shipping nationwide.
The plan is to release the Last Tsar twice per year, but in different formats. It is made at Tabacalera William Ventura in the Dominican Republic.
