The draw was slightly tighter than I prefer, but didn’t cause any issues with the smoking experience.
The cigar began with musty cedar and intense black pepper. The pepper lightened up significantly about a half inch in. The pepper dropped out towards the end of the second third. The final third saw a light char join the cedar and a light vegetal note joined in as the cigar was wrapping up. Constriction was good and strength was slightly below medium most of the way. The Davidoff Cigar Dojo Exclusive 2018 had a nice start, although the intense black pepper was a bit surprising. After the first third, the profile became average and a typical Davidoff White Label experience. I didn’t find much unique about this iteration, but there wasn’t anything bad about it. If you’re a fan of Davidoff White Labels, you’re sure to find something you’ll like here. While this is likely something you’d have to track down on the secondary market, it’s probably not something to spend too much time tracking down as you can find a similar experience from the regular production lines.
