Cigar Review: Caldwell Holy Braille by Chico Rivas

Initial Thoughts:

Probably the first thing I noticed about the Holy Braille by Chico Rivas after taking it out of the cellophane was how awesome the cigar smelled. The Dominican Habana HVA wrapper leaf was giving off a truly amazing aroma, and I was very eager to get into this stick.

On the cold draw, the Holy Braille delivers a tangy citrus flavor that's quite unlike the aroma of the wrapper. In fact, the cold draw flavors of the inside of the cigar and the smell of wrapper are quite different. After lighting the cigar, I could taste something familiar, but I wasn't quite able to place it.

Doing a little digging, I found out that the Holy Braille is actually a Caldwell cigar, and that Chico Rivas is the blender.

Final Thoughts:

Honestly, the Lost & Found Holy Braille by Chico Rivas doesn't live up to the Caldwell brand that the company has painstakingly hidden on this cigars label. This cigar has mediocre flavors, a terrible burn, and a draw that constantly left me wanting something better.

Overall, the construction of the Holy Braille I smoked was not good. For me, Caldwell Cigar Co's Lost & Found Holy Braille by Chico Rivas earns a CigarScore 2.
