Long and lean, the Caldwell Anastasia Mercure Churchill looks as sexy as the face on the cigar band. According to the Caldwell website, the Anastasia is Robert Caldwell’s pride and joy, comprised of rare tobaccos acquired by Ernest Perez-Carrillo. Tinges of wood passed through the cold draw. Black pepper, a surprise, welcomed me in the first few puffs, exiting quickly to leave fresh ground coffee. The midpoint featured wood, followed by cocoa. Wood stayed, blending with peanut for a unique and tasty finish. Peppery retrohales highlighted the overall flavor profile.
