A somewhat mysterious cigar from boutique brand Caldwell Cigar Co. The Last Tsar has held many names, but was finally released in early 2015 under the Tsar moniker, commemorating Emperor Nicholas II, the “last tsar” of Russia.
As with many Caldwell releases, the cigar features hand-drawn artwork for the band, in a simplistic charcoal sketch on white backdrop. This is marketed as a more premium blend compared to the base “Caldwell Collection”. Differing from the Caldwell Collection, very little is known of the blend. It will be released roughly twice per year, differing in sizes and potentially blend from release to release.
