The Long Live the King Mad MoFo, a new cigar from Caldwell Cigars that has begun showing up at stores, is being released in support of Cigars for Warriors.

It’s a 5 x 50 robusto that uses a Mexican San Andrés maduro wrapper over a Dominican binder and fillers, which Caldwell has described as being both very rich and more sophisticated than the normal Mofo lines. The cigars have an MSRP of $11 and are offered in 10-count boxes, with 1,000 boxes being produced at Tabacalera William Ventura in the Dominican Republic.

The cigars are only being offered to stores that are designated as Cigars for Warriors donation centers. Caldwell has also noted that it will be a yearly limited edition cigar.

“We wanted to do something on a larger scale to support the organization and our troops,” Caldwell said. “We have been talking for years about doing something and finally decided on releasing this cigar which we donate the proceeds to CFW. We aren’t making anything on these cigars. We want to get more cigars into our troops hands and support a just cause,” he added.

The lid of the box includes a number of significant dates for American troops and the military, from the birth of the U.S. Army to the start of the was in Afghanistan and the invasion of Iraq, with the most recent date the launch of the U.S. Space Force.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
