Caldwell Reserva Sevillana Robusto cigars are the latest indulgence from Robert Caldwell and his expert team at Caldwell cigars down in the Dominican Republic. Though relatively new to the scene, Caldwell cigars has had some huge hits in the past year or so, including "The King is Dead" and "Long Live the King." Always giving interesting names to his interesting smokes, Robert Caldwell has seemed to capture the attention of the most demanding aficionados and, in return, has received rave reviews. Reserva Sevillana is just the newest masterpiece: A mild-medium-bodied gem of a cigar featuring a golden Ecuador Connecticut wrapper leaf. As for the filler and binder blend, Caldwell has chosen to keep the recipe a secret. What's no secret, however, is that Reserva Sevillana is one fantastic work of art that anyone interested in high-end stogies should check out.
Smooth and silky, the delightfully veiny Connecticut wrapper glistens with natural oils. Seamless construction and a solid draw combine for a razor sharp burn and thick clouds of smoke. Beginning mild, with hints of pepper, the creamy smoke soon turns to a complex array of subtle nuances of wood, pepper, spice, and citrus. A sweet hint of cedar rolls off the nose on the finish. Reserva Sevillana may not be the most intense cigar, but the flavors don't lie: This one is a masterpiece.
Caldwell Reserva Sevillana is a cigar for true connoisseurs. Beginners need not apply. Though medium-bodied at best and quite tame, it's a delicate blend of complexities that really need to be savored by an experienced palate. The most classic size offered here, the 5 x 50 Robusto, provides at least a solid hour of pure relaxation and an immense dose of flavor. Reserva Sevillana is best enjoyed with white wine, champagne, or a single-malt scotch, and makes a great choice for a celebratory cigar. Similar sticks include Diamond Crown and Romeo y Julieta Reserva Real. For fans of mild-medium cigars that just want something new and different to step outside the ordinary, look no further than Caldwell Reserva Sevillana Robusto.
