Name: Caldwell Eastern Standard The Cypress Room

Country: Dominican Republic

Shape: Parejo

Size: Toro (6 inches x 54)

Strength: Medium

This is the third Caldwell cigar that I try. But it’s the first time I try an Eastern Standard stick. Going with a Scotch seemed like a good choice, so I had a couple of glasses of Johnnie Walker Black Label with it. And, every now and then, I took a sip of sparkling water to reset my palate.

Branding: I like how Caldwell uses faces on their cigar bands. It gives them a nice touch. I’m not a big fan of faces myself, but I like that they have a style.

Construction: Good. I usually prefer my cigars to be rolled a little firmer.

Pre-light: Fresh. Barnyard.

Cut: Straight.

Burn: Mostly even.

Duration: It’s a big cigar, but it burns fast. I was done in less than 60 minutes.

Draw: Good. Not too loose, but a little loose.

Smoke: It produced a decent amount of smoke.

Ash: Good.

Flavor: Nutty notes. Hints of oak, wood, light roast coffee.
