Pre-light Experience

The cigar is firm in hand and has a nice light Colorado colored wrapper. It’s coloring is consistent throughout, no marbling and it has an antique brown with red coloring. There are few veins present throughout and it is smooth in texture with a slight touch of tooth. There is a nice cap applied to the cigar and it is well rolled. The wrapper is giving off a nice manure aroma and it is paired with some dry earth, leather, cedar and soft spice notes. The foot is showing a lot of those spice notes with some dry earth, sweet stone fruit qualities and leather also.

First Third

The first third opens up by delivering a nice sweet spice and there are some soft stone fruit notes with that. It has that dry earth present as well and it is paired with a soft cedar and leather flavor profile. It has a long finish and it is a finish that shows spice and fruit qualities. I would classify the cigar as being medium across the board, and there is a lot of complexity, depth and balance to this cigar.

Second Third

I am in the second third of the cigar now and it is really continuing a lot of the great flavors from the first third. It is not showing that stone fruit flavor in this third but it is delivering that leather, dry earth and soft spice that was present before. It has a woody finish and with that is a nice spice kick. I would still say that the cigar is smoking at that medium level in all areas like before, and it is still complex with a nice bit of depth.

Final Third

When I get into the final third of the cigar I find that it is kicking things up a bit. I would say the cigar is more medium-full in all areas and it is still keeping its complexity and depth. There is a richness present in this third and it has a richer earth and stronger wood profile. I am still picking up some leather and it has a darker spice flavor as well. The cigar smokes cool to the end and continues to deliver a rich and darker side than has been present in the first two thirds.

Burn

Overall, the cigar was constructed nicely and burnt well throughout. There was a time in the second third and towards the end where it didn’t burn well and it was a little uneven, but overall it was rolled well and those issues corrected themselves. The ash held on firmly throughout and it produced a solid charcoal coloring. Like any Davidoff, this is a well rolled cigar and will allow the smoker the ability to smoke the cigar and enjoy it while not worrying about how it is smoking.

Draw

Like the burn, the draw was great and for being a 60 ring gauge cigar it was not overwhelming. It was not really snug, but smoke did not bombard the palate. For a 60 ring gauge, it had one my favorite draws and was not too open.

Overall

I have always been a fan of the Davidoff Nicaragua line. I think it is one the best Nicaraguan puros on the market. It is a line that smokes great in a smaller format but also a larger format. Each vitola has its strengths and the 60 ring gauge offering gives you the opportunity to really get the aged filler tobacco on the inside with touches of the wrapper as well. If you are a big ring gauge fan and loved the line, I would highly recommend it. I don’t think I would go and purchase a 60 ring gauge offering over the smaller offerings. 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.
