I briefly introduced Caliber in a video back in January. They donate a portion of their proceeds to K9’s For Warriors. A charity that rescues dogs, trains them and then pairs them with soldiers who have PTSD. WOW. What an amazing cause. Aside from doing good, they also make excellent cigars. They work out of a factory in Nicaragua in Esteli called Tabacalera Choro. The thing I like about their cigars is they are very professional. If you want to know what I mean by that, take a look at the cigar. It’s near perfect. Construction, near perfect. Flavors, near perfect. I feel like we found a hidden gem with these guys. The brand and the factory. Expect more from them. Ironically, in a business where every manufacturer wants to be famous in the industry, these folks want nothing but to make a great cigar and enjoy the freedoms of this great nation while helping soldiers get back on their feet. Apparently, they started making cigars at this factory a couple of years ago and this was their first blend. I’m honored to support the good cause, we can feel good about this one for sure. Maybe give K9’s For Warriors or Caliber Cigar Co. a shout on social media.

Description

Tasting Notes:  Off the body I get sweet milk chocolate, charred cedar, and oiled leather. Off the foot is more milk chocolate, chipotle and black pepper. The cold draw is sweet hickory, black pepper, cedar, chestnuts, and salty earth. The first third starts off with warm, buttery popcorn, black pepper and light caramel sweetness. It kind of reminds me of a spicy kettle corn! A red chili spice starts to wash over the palate before long and lingers long on the finish. Also getting browned butter, roasted almonds, cashew, savory cedar, oak, and herbal tea. Retrohale gives me a great blend of caramel, cashew, white pepper, apricot, and cedar. The smoke texture is excellent with a creamy, nut butter mouth feel. Second third starts to bring out fruity notes of mandarin orange in sugar syrup, sweeter cedar, nut butters (almond and cashew, YES!) more herbal tea, hints of peach and apricot, with a retrohale of white pepper, citrus zest, hickory, and musty cedar. The finish is smooth, delicious and long. The last third begins with a sharp shift of minerality that then morphs into a blend of savory wood notes, almond extract, cocoa powder, aromatic tea, baking spices, charred sugar, and vanilla. Seriously, it felt like I had walked into a specialty tea shop in the final third of this cigar!

Pairing Notes: Caramel anything, dulce de leche, cafe con leche, light and sweet coffee, Teakeepers caramel tea, rice pudding with cinnamon, BBQ pulled pork, Thai food, red wine, cognac.
