Cigar Review: Caldwell Lost & Found Land O’ Snakes Maduro Toro

Initial Thoughts

As the story goes, Robert Caldwell, founder of Caldwell Cigars, roams the Earth looking for tobacco and cigars that have been long lost and possibly forgotten. These cigars, if they pass Robert's test, are purchased and rebranded as part of the Caldwell Lost & Found Collection (aka Caldwell LNF).

Today we're going to review such a cigar, the Caldwell Lost & Found Land O' Snakes Maduro toro.

First impressions, the Land O' Snakes Maduro was a good-looking cigar. There was a distinctive stem or vein running down the bottom half of the cigar that, oddly enough, looked like a snake.

When I gave the cigar a quick sniff, the aroma was amazing. On the cold draw, the resistance was perfect and the flavors were leafy and… syrupy?

Is the Caldwell LNF Land O' Snakes Maduro toro as good as it smells? Is this LNF blend worth $12? Let's find out.

Through the middle of the Caldwell LNF Land O' Snakes Maduro toro, I had a lot of issues. It both burned too fast and too slow at the same time. Was the humidity in my humidor too high? Was it too low? Well, neither.

Final Thoughts

After relighting the Caldwell LNF Land O' Snakes Maduro toro a dozen times over 68 minutes, I was done with this cigar.

Overall, the construction of this cigar was terrible. The cigar kept going out despite me actively smoking it. However, while the flavors started out pretty good, in the final third they were a bit ashy.

This cigar was really disappointing. Maybe it was a lemon, I don't know. The Caldwell LNF Land O' Snakes Maduro Toro earns a CigarScore 2.
