There is depth from start to finish, transitioning throughout and it never lacked the complexity that you expect from an ultra-premium cigar. The balance between the flavors is fantastic and the changing pepper and spice notes is simply great.
Following the relaunch of the Davidoff Winston Churchill Cigars in 2015, Davidoff unveils a contemporary accessory line bearing the name of and inspired by one of the facets of the world’s most iconic cigar aficionado – his long serving role as a statesman.
If you are a big ring gauge fan and loved the line, I would highly recommend it. I smoke smaller ring gauge cigars, but if I am in the mood for a big cigar I would grab one of these. Lots of flavors, complex and balanced.
The cigar offers a full-flavored blend of specially-aged long-fillers from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua embraced by a Mexican San Andrés Negro binder, and finished in a flawless, dark-natural Habano wrapper grown in Ecuador.
Honestly, the cigar was a disappointment to me. When you modify a blend by changing the wrapper you can have a lot of success. At the same time, you can have a wrapper that does not go well with the blend. I believe it would have been more productive if they had created a whole new blend to be used with the wrapper.
Davidoff has yet another winner under their belt. In a way, this is what I expect out of Davidoff with their newly badged and blended cigar. This is a must try for especially experienced smokers given its increased strength and nuances.
The flavors were a bit fragmented for the first half of the first third and then melded well. The second third was very full on flavor and was the best representation of the blend. The final third then had some big swings but was still enjoyable.
