Caldwell Blind Man’s Bluff Maduro Robusto

Caldwell Blind Man’s Bluff Maduro Robusto 1600 900 Michel Arlia

Caldwell’s Blind Man’s Bluff Maduro is a line extension, that was introduced earlier this year, to the Habano and Connecticut wrapped version. The leaf that makes up the wrapper is a Pennsylvania Broadleaf. Compared to the other two version, that are made in Honduras, this Maduro line is made at the Tabacalera William Ventrua, in the DR.

Visually, the wrapper is of a Maduro shade and as you would expect it has some tooth to it. Construction is good, althought the overall craftsmanship could be better.

Caldwell Blind Man's Bluff Maduro Robusto

Caldwell Blind Man’s Bluff Maduro Robusto: the cold draw reveals aromas of barnyard and some spizes. Once lit, the first few puffs are dominated by spices and some wood flavors.

The first third continues with the combination of spices, black pepper, and wood. Further into the third, a earthy component is added to the profile. Strength is already at a solid medium level (3/5).

In the second third, the earth becomes more pronounced and joins the black pepper and wood in the front. In some puffs, there is some ripe fruit sweetness coming through in the background. Strength stays at the medium level (3/5).

There is not much else going on in the last third. The ripe fruit sweetness has disappeard, while the trio of black pepper, wood and earth are still well present. Strength remains constant.

Overall, the Caldwell Blind Man’s Bluff Maduro Robusto is an easy cigar to enjoy. The flavors of black pepper, wood and earth are well balanced between each other and make for a decent flavor profile. To bad the ripe fruit sweetness did not stick around to long, since it would have added some depth to the smoke.
