La Barba Purple by Caldwell Cigars


I get to say, “I tried it”. She looks beautiful, but… nothing too exciting; very pleasant.

This was suggested and I bit; good thing I have another one just in case my tasting was because of a foul mood or something.

The Caldwell La Barba Purple came with a very loose and open draw and a soft cap-end (weird); first flag. The pre-light was a very airy tobacco flavor with black pepper in there that would last the rest of the way.

The soft cap-end never became an issue and the burn was even all the way for a good smoking experience where the flavors were a bit lacking for me today.

Anyway, Stay Chill
Stay Smokey
