Midnight Express

Caldwell's lineup saw a dramatic bump in 2016, including the dark sequel to the brand's popular Eastern Standard lineup. Midnight Express takes this peculiar cigar down a darker path, inverting the cigar's notorious, hand-sketched band for a new, gold-on-black layout and packaging to match. Of course, the look isn't the only change—the Eastern Standard's Connecticut Hybrid Ecuadoriano wrapper has been swapped for a Connecticut Arapiraca Maduro leaf, as well as a slightly tweaked filler blend to highlight the new wrapper.
