First there was the Eastern Standard, then there was ES Midnight Express and ES Dos Firmas; finally, Caldwell brought the collection full circle with the debut of the Eastern Standard Sungrown in 2018.
As with nearly all cigars in the Eastern Standard collection, the Sungrown boasts a unique hybrid-style wrapper. This leaf is a mixture of Mexican and Cuban-seed varietals, being grown under direct sunlight to bring out a more oily, spicy profile. The ES Sungrown's unique wrapper is joined by an Ecuadorian binder and fillers of the Dominican Republic and Mexico. This combination has proved to be a winning recipe, offering the strongest smoking experience in the entire collection of Caldwell Cigar Company!
With a full body and strength, enthusiasts can expect a punchy profile from start to finish, including fiery characteristics of freshly cracked peppercorn, earth, salted popcorn, roasted nuts, and intense red pepper through the retrohale.
