The King Is Dead Premier From Caldwell Cigars

The King is Dead Premier by Caldwell Cigars
Here's another stick from my Cigar Train, Cigar Of The Month Club package a couple of months back, The King Is Dead Premier, From Caldwell Cigars

Although this is only my second Caldwell cigar, I'm really impressed with the quality of their cigars. This well packed 5 x 50 Premier is covered by a hearty, seamless and oily, Colorado colored wrapper, plus it's topped off with a nice pigtail cap. From the foot there's a faint aroma of fermented tobacco to the nose, while the firm cold draw is both sweet and spicy. 

Once the foot is toasted and burning the first mild/medium body flavors are a mix of sweet cream, toast and nuts. As the sharp burn line moves up the cigar an oil sheen develops on the wrapper, the body moves into the medium range and notes of sweet caramel join the flavor mix. 

In the final third, the body builds a bit more as this medium/full bodied Premier ends it's sixty-five minute burn with nuances of sweet toasty caramel. 

Overall I really enjoyed this stick. The flavors were smooth and tasty full length, the burn was sharp, plus the sixty-five minute burn was fantastic. I'm really looking forward smoking more of their great cigars.
