Caldwell Cigar Company: Crafted and Curated Athenee Cigars
Product Number: 007-763-0089
Released in 2022, Caldwell's Crafted and Curated series acts as a creative outlet for Robert Caldwell, offering unique blending and sizing experimentation to discerning connoisseurs. Some Crafted and Curated cigars tweak existing Caldwell blends with different components or process, while others are entirely distinctive blends. However, all are extremely limited in production and represent Robert's personal tastes and artistry.
Athénée is a variant on Eastern Standard: It trades the original's Ecuadorian Connecticut hybrid wrapper for one of Ecuadorian Habano leaf while still featuring the same Dominican Habano binder and Dominican and Nicaraguan fillers. A singular 5.25" x 52 Robusto Extra size, the Athénée was hand-rolled at William Ventura's El Maestro factory in the Dominican Republic, and only 260 total boxes were made.
