LCA CALDWELL LOST & FOUND COOKIE MONSTER
Caldwell Lost and Found Cookie Monster
Limited Cigar Association Release
Tasting Notes: On the body I smell fall leaves, butterscotch, milk chocolate and black tea. The foot smells of sweetened black tea and the cold draw reminds me of peach iced tea. The first third starts with an aged tobacco note, dark and bitter baking cocoa, heavy wood flavors, white pepper on the retrohale and a sort of apple cider vinegar on the tongue. The first inch of a very aged cigar can leave something to be desired but this certainly is packed with unique flavors. Graham cracker leads the way in the second third. There is a musty note of earth- like mushroom. I then get hit with florals and woods and the smoke itself gives me a cooling almost menthol sensation. It lends itself to remind me of mint chocolate at times. The final third transitions to spicier black pepper, wood remains dominant and I get salty, starchy notes like potato chips. It’s very savory. What an experience!
