Quick Smoke: Caldwell Eastern Standard Signature (Dos Firmas) Rothschild

3 Mar 2019

A couple times each week we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”

An extension of one of Caldwell’s first lines, “Eastern Standard,” this cigar tweaks that blend with a lighter Connecticut Shade wrapper, Nicaraguan binder, and filler from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. The Rothschild (4.75 x 52) features above-average construction with a pigtail cap. The profile includes light roast coffee, cream, and hay with a clean, short finish. It’s a pleasant, if not particularly complex, mild cigar.

Verdict = Hold.

    I expected a ton from this one since I like ES so much. However, I’m with your assessment on hold, maybe even sell. Hit & run is a much better smoke imo.
