"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)

"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)
Tuesday, December 20, 2016 — Miami, FL – Caldwell Cigar Co. and Drew Estate announced today that All Out Kings would be shipping in March of 2017, slightly delayed from the anticipated shipment date of November 2016. All Out Kings is a collaborative project between the two companies that was announced early in 2016, and formally released at the 2016 IPCPR Convention and Tradeshow held in Las Vegas, Nevada.
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.
"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.)
"I'll be the first to say this vitola was not my cup of tea and was potentially a tough cigar for me due to the size. I can lose interest in a larger vitola if the flavors don't progress enough. The balance between progression and consistency can be a fine line for my palette. However, the consistency of this smoke was impressive in all areas, flavor, burn, draw, and construction. So, regardless of my personal preferences in vitola, this was a very decent cigar that I would burn again in the right circumstance." -Diana (ArmyRN)
Perhaps the most exciting thing about this booth was the presence of Matt Booth, which signified not only his return to the cigar industry, but that he was collaborating with none other than Robert Caldwell and AJ Fernandez to make some new cigars.
Yes, I knew what I was smoking. Yes, I am a fan of Drew Estate, especially the T-52 and also blends from Willy Herrera. Yes, I am a fan of Caldwell, especially The King is Dead and The Last Tsar. Take all of that into account, and call me a fanboy if you want. I just don't care, because this was an excellent cigar.
