Caldwell Anastasia Kartel Cigar Review – This 5×49 stick features a dark tan softly packed dry satin wrapper with minimal veins, tight invisible seams, triple cap and pungent musty leather and cocoa aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with plentiful medium-full bodied smoke showing draw flavors of a rich leather going to a soft earth and cocoa on the long finish. The first third continues the same great performance just adding a touch of cayenne heat to the finish adding a little more dimension. The 1/2 way point comes at 25 minutes with flavors dropping the leather going to a earth and slight cocoa draw followed by a creamy light but bold earth dropping the pepper and spice through the long finish. Ending at 50 minutes the last third switches to a black coffee and dry earth, staying cool to the nub.
