Tune in as Shane and Kaz take a closer look at Caldwell's limited edition Mad Mofo, a special maduro production run of the popular Long Live The King line. In addition to a full review of the stick, the guys also take the time to compare it to some of their favorite pipe tobacco blends and offer some recommendations for pairings.
Long Live the King is one of the most well regarded and popular series in Caldwell's lineup, consistently scoring 90+ ratings by Cigar Aficionado and other premium cigar review publications. Crafted in small batches, the blend is entirely comprised of rare, A-grade tobaccos, resulting in a rich, spicy flavor and complex profile. Expanding on the standard line's success, Robert Caldwell announced at 2018's IPCPR show that the company would be offering a limited edition, maduro run of LLTK The Long Live The King Mad Mofo.
Featuring a spicy Mexican San Andrés wrapper, combined with an Indonesian binder and a unique filler blend of Corojo 98 and Pennsylvanian double ligero leaf, the Mad Mofo is an excellent addition to this popular line. Medium to full in strength, it offers notes of toasty cocoa, nutty grains, stone fruits, and a bit of leathery spice, delivering everything you'd expect from a high-quality, balanced maduro stick. Only 75,000 cigars were produced, so when they're gone, they're gone for good. Don't miss your chance to experience the darker side of the King. Available in four vitolas:
