Caldwell The Industrialist has been announced as a limited-edition release exclusive to Cigora, a digital platform, run by STG (parent company of General Cigar and Cigars International) that curates special premium cigar offerings for discerning smokers.
STG and Forged Cigar Company's Justin Andrews and Robert Caldwell (Caldwell Cigars and Lost & Found) are collaborating on a new cigar, Bolivar Cofradia Lost & Found. This limited edition collection was created in Caldwell’s tradition of bringing “forgotten tobacco” from Central America’s best cigar factories to cigar lovers in the US.
Caldwell Cigar Company and Cigar Dojo announced today their first collaboration: Far Eastern Standard. This new cigar is a lancero, another first for Cigar Dojo, and pays homage to the original Eastern Standard release from Caldwell, a long time favorite of the Cigar Dojo.

"I was very surprised by this stick. After the light aromas on the prelight, the cigar was full of great flavors. It was very cubanesque from the look and vitola to the flavor. I would love to smoke this in the morning with a cup of coffee. The stick had a couple of faults but was easy to overlook because the flavor was so good. I even nubbed this thing all the way down." -Matt (Mattehh)
"This was a very very enjoyable cigar, there were no extreme flavor transitions in fact the flavors seem to mildly transition at the appropriate times staying pretty consistent throughout the whole smoking experience. All the flavors highlighted in the cigar being cinnamon, vanilla, cocoa, leather, and sweet aged tobacco were perfectly balanced for me and came and went at the appropriate times. The draw and construction of the cigar were impeccable making for an overall excellent cigar and a great smoking experience. This is definitely a cigar I would smoke again and recommend to anyone who enjoys cigars. As for pairings, I think the cigar would be excellent with a mocha style coffee or an oatmeal stout." -Angel M. (Angel)
"While there was a little bit of concern from the mid-point on, all in all this cigar offered a very pleasant smoking experience. The transitions from start to finish were well defined and each complimented the next. It is firmly in the medium full range in strength and body, and would be most enjoyed by smokers with a little experience under their belt to truly appreciate what the cigar has to offer. This is definitely a cigar I would like to smoke again. " -Kevin A. (Kevin A.)
From the first third to the final third I really enjoyed this cigar. If I could smoke all cigars in this format I would be a happy fella as lonsdale is typically my favorite size in any cigar this is just a slightly thicker lonsdale coming in at a 6 1/4 x 48. The cigar had a consistent profile from beginning to end but I thoroughly enjoyed the smoking experience. I would probably rate this cigar a bit higher if it had a bit more of a wow factor but I would be happy to have boxes of these.

"I enjoyed this cigar, it was mild enough to be enjoyed as your 1st cigar of the day with some coffee. There were enough transitions to hold my attention with cream, cedar and some cinnamon. " -Mickey T. (irratebass)
