Anastasia from Caldwell Cigars is the follow-up to their The Last Tsar line and has gone through numerous iterations, marked by a different colored secondary band. This year’s release is the “Yellow Label.” The Caspia, a Corona Gorda size, is marked by a broad and smooth flavor profile. The aromas are well intertwined, creating a complex yet round smoke.

Herbs, wood, and spices, mainly white pepper, start off the smoke, followed by nutty aromas. In the second half, a creamy leather note joins the profile, with the pepper turning black.

HOW ARE THE AWARDS MADE?

Those who scored the highest among the cigars tested during the year in blind tastings and reviews get re-selected. These products are then tested once again in a new blind tasting, which means not knowing what they are during the tasting. The test results are then compared, and the TOP 5 are created.

Since 2015, CigarsLover Magazine has focused on terroirs in order to give the right space to all the producing countries. From 2018, the TOP 5 were paired with the TOP 50, which lists the 50 best cigars without distinction of origin. Together with the Best Brands, the Best Buy, and the best Boutique Brands, this list will be published in CigarsLover Magazine issue #5.
