Pre-light Experience

The wrapper on the Davidoff Signature 6000 is medium tan and has some thin, knotty veins as well as some wrinkles. The seams are smooth and the caps are applied very well. The cigar has two bands, with the primary being the traditional white label design and the secondary carrying the same color combination and denoting the line. The aroma from the wrapper is dry and lightly sweet hay while the foot brings a fuller and more detailed version of the same. The pre-light draw brings a very musty hay note with a mild spiciness on my lips.

First Third

The cigar begins with dry, toasted hay and light mustiness. At a half inch in, a light creaminess joins the profile which lessens the dryness in the profile. The retrohale is light creamy and musty toasted hay. As the third comes to a close, the toasted hay is the main player with some light creaminess and mustiness accompanying it. The strength in this third was mild-medium.

Second Third

The second third continues on with the slightly creamy and musty toasted hay. At a half inch in, the creaminess departs, the mustiness becomes even lighter, the toasted hay is now toasted wood and the overall profile is now fairly dry. The retrohale is now just toasted wood. The third wraps up with slightly musty, toasted dry wood. The strength in this third bumped up to slightly below medium.

Final Third

The final third continues with the dry, toasted wood and light mustiness. At a quarter inch in, a slight bitterness joins the profile. The retrohale remains toasted wood. At three quarters of an inch in, the bitterness has picked up a fair amount and has a fairly long finish. The cigar wraps up with the dry, toasted wood, mid-level bitterness and faint mustiness. The strength in this third bumped up to medium.

Burn

The burn was razor sharp the entire way and the ash held on in about inch and a half increments.

Draw

The draw was perfect, with just the right amount of resistance that I prefer.

Overall

The flavor profile was fairly basic, starting off with toasted hay that later transitioned to toasted wood with some accompanying mustiness and creaminess. The final third dropped a bit as some bitterness joined in and built up. The cigar had fantastic construction and just allowed me to smoke it. While there is a large segment of the smoking population that would enjoy this cigar, the Davidoff Signature 6000 is just a bit too basic for me. With the high price point, I just don’t see returning to it, but if you’re a fan of mellow Connecticut shades, it will likely be right in your wheelhouse.
