Holy Braille - was originally re-released in 2015. In 2017, a considerable allocation was secured in the cedar-lined storage rooms of a Dominican cigar factory for long-term aging. As soon as Robert Caldwell could determine the cigars had reached their optimum potential, he approved the remaining inventory to be packed up and put back on the market. We're excited to present the re-re-release of Lost & Found Holy Braille, and to finally bring the blend back to where it belongs: you and your humidor!
Crafted by Chico Rivas at his boutique tabacalera in the Dominican, Lost & Found Holy Braille features an all-Dominican recipe. These Puros are prepared with HVC Habano '08 wrappers around redolent Dominican long-fillers. This combo colludes in exquisite fashion and finds you exactly where you want to be with savory/sweet notes of charred meat, ripe fruit, and red pepper. As the cigar develops you'll undoubtedly enjoy the increasing creaminess and clean, bright coffee bean finish. An excellent blend that will add some elegance and mystery to your cigar stash.
Lost & Found is a project between Robert Caldwell, Tony Bellatto, and Jaclyn Sears. The project is a continuing series of extremely limited production blends of some of the most rare, exotic and hard to acquire tobacco varietals that the boutique cigar industry has yet seen”. The concept involves searching for some of these unique blends that have been locked up in aging rooms for sometime and then make them available to the market. The company says the concept came as a result of Caldwell’s travels and his desire to explore some of these unusual blends that have been made available.

“These cigars are a limited production of very well aged cigars that Caldwell found while traveling through the Dominican Republic. I found them fascinating and we decided to share them with you. There is a very small quantity of them so enjoy them while they’re around.”

“Impromptu is a concept that came out of a few of my favorite things – traveling, smoking cigars, discovering and sharing.Over the last several months I have been traveling all over the world, spending a lot of time in the Caribbean and Central America in many tobacco fields and factories. Along the way I stumbled upon certain cigars that really left an impression on me. My friends suggest we share them with our friends and customers.These are very special cigars made with rare tobaccos hat have been aged to a point seldom enjoyed by most of us. I cannot take credit with making these beauties, nor for bringing them to you – just for discovering them.”
