Like the burn, the cigar had a nice draw from beginning to end. It was not too loose and it offered a slight bit of resistance which helped in concentrating the smoke. Once again, it was a sign of a well rolled cigar and the tobacco being applied well in the blend.
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, but I feel that way about a lot of cigars that have a simple wrapper swap. There are a lot of other cigars I would pickup over this, a lot of Davidoff releases I would smoke over this and I think many will feel the same. Obviously, Davidoff wanted to have a release with this wrapper and I think that is great, but they simply appeared to have thrown it over this blend which does not help the story of the wrapper or Davidoff the brand.
