Robert Caldwell’s affinity for cigars began after visiting Ernesto Perez-Carrillo’s factory in Little Havana when Caldwell was just 12 years old. He was immediately drawn to the craftsmanship, complexity and grace of cigar manufacturing. Little did he know that 20 years later he would release such a special cigar with Ernesto.
Anastasia is Caldwell’s pride and joy. Anastasia closes the circle of Caldwell’s journey through the industry, bringing him back to the spark of initial interest that lit the fire of a life dedicated to premium cigar manufacturing.
Caldwell has focused on specialty and rare tobaccos since he first stepped foot in the industry. Anastasia comes together with a creative blend of well-aged and long-missed tobaccos acquired and aged by Ernesto.
She is enjoyed by the novice and understood by the true consumer. Expect creamy notes of caramel, malt and spice.
