The Antique line is born as an extension to Lost & Found. It all started when Robert was offered a batch of extremely special cigars that were different than anything he had found or developed before. He then agreed to sell the small batch to one retailer and then decided to keep these as they were special to him and he wanted to develop something different than what Lost & Found was offering through their bundle offerings.
This wasn’t simply something that was lost and later found, but a unique production of something he knew well from one of the most reputable factories in the world. These cigars were kept by Robert for personal enjoyment, and have now been re-banded and re-branded as the Antique Line, which include “the oldest, most special, best-tasting cigars…The caviar of what we do with Lost & Found” (Caldwell).
These are rare cigars. Very unique, and perform unlike anything else Lost & Found Cigars has released.
The Antique Line PURPLE 2014 is a surprising Connecticut-wrapped cigar that contains tobaccos with a combined age of 35 years. It is surprisingly complex and as one of the oldest of its class, carries itself with poise. Robert Caldwell expresses that the Dominican cigar is filled with creaminess, “black pepper spice, and mild earthiness. Notes of hay and a floral presence.”
