At the 2016 IPCPR Trade Show, Caldwell Cigar Company added its sixth size to its The King is Dead line. This one comes in the form a 6 x 54 Toro.
Like the rest of The King is Dead line, the Toro is a Dominican puro. This year, owner Robert Caldwell has been more tight-lipped on blend components. The King is Dead line has featured a Dominican Negrto wrapper, a Dominican Corojo wrapper, and a combination of Dominican Negrito, Dominican Corojo, and HVA tobacco in the filler.
The King is Dead is part of the company’s Caldwell Collection line. At a glance, here is a look at The King is Dead:
