All Out Kings Smash, Robusto by Caldwell Cigars / Drew Estate

COVID-19 Day 308:

What a beautiful specimen of a cigar this is with its oily wrapper on a tightly packed and firm cigar.

At first puff my mouth fills with chewy smoke of balanced nuanced complex tobacco flavors… I can tell right away that this cigar will best be smoked alone just so I can selfishly enjoy everything it has to offer.

The draw is perfect, no double puffing on this cigar that produces tons of velvety smoke.

At the second third, I start to detect the flavors of creamy chocolate, espresso, some sweetness, malt and a touch of leather… a mild pepper spice appears on the retrohale. The Caldwell All Out Kings (AOK) hits all the checkboxes of tobacco flavors

Yes, Malty cocoa, coffee and creaminess can keep me company any day of the week.

This cigar definitely is worthy of its DNA… being a collaboration with Drew Estate (Willy Herrera). This cigar has a home in my TupperDor. Now I just need to find this hard to get smoke.
