Today I conclude my review of the premier lines from Caldwell Cigar Co. and look at The King Is Dead. It has been an incredible journey exploring the offerings from Robert Caldwell and he has come a long way since his time at Wynwood with Christian Eiroa. His blends have improved tremendously, and while I was a fan of his Wynwood smokes, the new smokes by Caldwell Cigar Co. have been terrific. I have had no complaints with anything I have smoked and everything has been so different and so good at the same time. The King Is Dead may have been released with the other blends at the same time, but to me this is the line that comes off as the first. It is a line that pays respect to the past and has a history that tells the story of Robert Caldwell before Caldwell Cigar Co. and lead the path to the new journey with the company. When approaching the line, Robert Caldwell pointed me in the direction of this particular smoke and explained that there was something special in this blend. Today, I looked at The Last Payday.

With the announcement of Gabriel Alvarez as the new director of sales in the United States, I thought it was only fitting to review another stick by Maya Selva so soon after reviewing Flor de Selva. I am smoking my way through the brand and I came across this cigar that has really wowed me. The cigar is called Villa Zamorano and it is a bundled cigar for the company. I do hate the word bundle because I think it ruins great cigars just by saying bundle, but it is a more affordable cigar. I think Maya said it perfectly in a video about the cigar by saying this a cigar filled with good tobacco. It is not a "sophisticated cigar," but rather a cigar that is filled with good tobacco. What I love about what she has said is that she emphasizes that the cigar still has good tobacco in it, it is just not as flashy as some of the premier blends. Every company needs an everyday cigar and for Maya Selva, it is Villa Zamorano.
