Caldwell used to be a brand I wasn't all that familiar with. Now I've had 2 - both good. Today I'm smoking the Young Savages, my 3rd cigar from Caldwell cigars.

Will it be as good as the first two? I hope so!

How to Season Your Humidor the Right Way! 

Initial Thoughts:

The Caldwell cigar company is always doing something a little different, and today I'm smoking the Caldwell Young Savages Short Corona Gorda. This great looking cigar has a quirky label on top of a beautiful wrapper leaf, and I'm excited to smoke it!

Brand: Caldwell
Line: Young Savages
Size: 4 1/2 x 46
Cut: Guillotine
Light: Torch
Price: $11

Final Thoughts:

This review kind of hurts. While the Caldwell Young Savages had a great draw and the flavors were tasty, the burn issues were constant and throughout the entire cigar. Even after re-lighting the cigar multiple times, the excess moisture in the stems of the wrapper proved to be seriously problematic.

Combine a semi-decent experience with an $11 smoke that only lasts about 50 minutes and you get a cigar that's hard to love. Because this cigar was a little too much money for a little too little quality, I have to give the Caldwell Young Savages Short Corona Gorda a CigarScore of 3.
