The All Out Kings cigar was revealed at last year’s International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailers trade show, becoming one of the highest anticipated cigar releases of the year. After being delayed from their expected November product launch, the cigars have officially hit shelves as of March. Although marketed as a Caldwell product, this cigar was created as part of collaboration between Jonathan Drew and Willy Herrera of Drew Estate, and Robert Caldwell of Caldwell Cigar Company. In an interview with Cigar Aficionado, Herrera expressed that he delayed the release of the cigar because he felt it was not ready to be released, because “The stalk-cut Connecticut Habano wrapper is very thick and oily and required a bit more time in aging rooms to ensure that it smoked and tasted right”.
The unique blend features a Connecticut Habano wrapper, Indonesian Sumatra binder, and a filler blend made up of Connecticut broadleaf ligero, Dominican corojo 97 Seco, Nicaragua viso from Estelí, and Nicaraguan viso from Jalapa. During a press release, Herrera commented on the planning process behind the All Out Kings. Because Caldwell is not typically a maduro smoker, they had to meet somewhere in the middle with regards to the strength of the cigar. The result was the selection of specific primings of Connecticut Habano wrapper that are flavorful, yet subtle, and is the same wrapper found on Drew Estate’s top-selling Liga Privada T-52 cigar. Upon lighting, you will immediately notice an excellent draw and large amounts of creamy smoke, with hints of caramel, pepper, milk chocolate, and of course a unique spicy note which is a characteristic of many Drew Estate blends.
This exquisite cigar can be picked up here at Ligero Tobacco House, to be enjoyed in our smoking lounge or in the comfort of your home. As always, you may be compelled to also enjoy a cup of our authentic café Cubano (Cuban coffee) along with your cigar!
