“Caldwell Cigar company has been an adventure for me from the day we began. We set out day one to do things differently,” said Robert Caldwell in a press release. “We had a lot of challenges and success in launching our brands in 2014. One of the ambitions of the company was to collaborate with other brands. Our biggest success is about to debut. People have been asking me for years when I was planning to release a Nicaraguan cigar. When John started kicking around ideas with me, I knew it was our time to let the ball roll in Nicaragua. It is a great compliment to our company to be able to work together with Drew and Willie and the Swag Cave Crew on this special project. “
All Out Kings will be distributed by Caldwell Cigar Co.
