In the early days of the Lost & Found project, Robert Caldwell spent his spare his time trotting the globe in search of small batch test blends and defunct cigar brands that could be risen from the ashes. Today, Lost & Found cigars is a booming boutique brand within the Caldwell lineup.
Robert partnered with longtime friend, Tony Bellatto, of La Barba Cigars on one of their first production releases: Lost & Found 22 Minutes to Midnight Habano de Oro. The two have remained tight-lipped about blend details—only letting on that these premium cigars are rolled in a Habano wrapper and include filler tobaccos aged more than 25 years. Even more mystery surrounds the name. ‘23:38,’ is inscribed on each band, matching the name in military time. But instead of attempting to decipher Robert’s secrets, we focused on smoking the cigars. And boy…are we glad we did!
22 Minutes’ smokes mellow-to-medium-bodied with a touch of bolder spices. Expect flavors of sweet wood, dark licorice, nuts, and molasses with an aromatically floral finish from every puff…but act fast. This refreshingly tasty limited production blend will only release twice per year and what’s left of our stock is going fast. Don’t wait till the 11th hour…bring this box home today at a low Famous price!
