List of retailers to carry Caldwell Limited Edition added below.

Originally Published (Jan. 13, 2015) — Caldwell Cigar Co. sent out a press-release today announcing their new limited edition. The presser was titled with this: последний цар. It’s Russian and translates to Last Tsar on Google Translate. Whether that is the name of the release or not is unknown as the company has not seen fit to announce the name of the project. The photo in the press-release also bears a striking resemblance to Nicholas II, who was the last Emperor of Russia, Grand Duke of Finland, and titular King of Poland.

Caldwell Cigar Co. Announces Limited Edition 02

Press-Release:
Caldwell Cigar Company has announced the debut of their first limited edition to mark their one year anniversary. The project has been in the works since the early fall and they are in their final stages. The cigars were made in December but will need to hibernate through the winter. They are set to ship in May. The name of the brand has not yet been disclosed, but for the time being the company is referring to the brand as ‘Nothing You Ever Heard Of’.

It will debut in a very small run of 500 10 count boxes. They will be made available to a very select group of retailers. Caldwell has said that that group is not to exceed 49 merchants nationwide. “We are initiating a group called the First 49”, Caldwell says. “This select group will consist of the first 49 retailers that supported and continue to support this venture. We are releasing this product only to them. As we continue to release products in the coming years, these retailers will have first dibs on these releases”. Due to the tiny production of this limited release, all of the First 49ers may not even have a crack at it. We are limiting stores to 10 boxes each. The exception will be the launch partners, who will have access to 30 boxes a piece for the launch events”, states Caldwell.

The first run will be made only in the belicoso format. The plan is to release the cigar twice a year, each time in a different format. They will be made at Tabacalera William Ventura, in Tamboril, DR. Caldwell touts that these cigars are completely unique to anything he has smoked before. They will be full bodied, yet very refined. “They are going to be the fullest bodied cigar in the Caldwell Collection, yet palatable for most smokers.”

There is a limited amount of information being made available for the time being, but here is a vague breakdown: The first run will feature 500 10 count boxes. They are being made using a hybrid Connecticut Arapiraca Natural Maduro wrapper. The other blend information is being excluded for the time being.

Caldwell will be releasing a list of retailers who will be carrying the cigar in the coming weeks.

Update (Jan. 19, 2015) — Robert Caldwell has provided the list of retailers that carry his limited edition account designation. These retailers will almost assuredly carry the unnamed “Last Tsar” announced in this presser. Here is the entire list in no particular order.
