2024 marks the Year of the Dragon, a zodiac characterized by prowess and charisma. Aficionados born in the Year of the Dragon are eloquent and passionate leaders with a strong sense of ambition and tempers which can be quick to ignite.
This Davidoff Nicaragua 10th Anniversary Limited Edition is one of the few that is worthy of a limited edition/anniversary. Not the most transitional of blends but from start to finish, the cigar was amazingly flavorful and balanced. Pick one up or enjoy two hours with this at your favorite cigar shop.
The Davidoff Millennium Lancero Limited Edition 2023 wasn't quite what I expected from Davidoff. A more intense and spicy cigar that seems to be a departure from the historical flavor combinations that Davidoff tends to blend for. The first and second thirds were the most engaging, with the last third becoming unbalanced as it heated up. I would happily smoke the Davidoff Millennium Lancero Limited Edition 2023 again if I had the opportunity.
The Davidoff Year of the Rabbit Limited Edition 2023 had a complex profile through the first two thirds and then became less dynamic in the final third. It really amped up the profile from multiple blends the company has employed previously. This is a cigar I'd definitely come back to, but the high price point is a bit of a detractor. Nice to see a step back up for the Year of series.
For the second time this year, Davidoff Cigars surprises its loyal aficionados with a limited edition of an iconic White Band Collection cigar which was most beloved in its day. As part of its captivating The Difference campaign, the brand launches the Millennium Lancero Limited Edition Collection; a restage of the former Millennium Blend Lancero.
While the Davidoff Limited Edition 2022 Gran Toro performed well and I thought solid flavors were delivered, I don’t think the blend did a great job of capturing the three “Black Label” brands. With that, there was nothing wowing to this cigar that justified the limited title and high price. Balanced cigar with a nice increase in strength and body. Very well constructed. Came off as a less Brazilian Davidoff Escurio.
The Davidoff Year of the Tiger Limited Edition 2022 was enjoyable, and the natural comparison here is to my experience with last year's Ox release. I thought the Year of the Tiger had nuanced and balanced flavor components through the first and second third that kept my interest. The last third was average as most of that complexity fell off. I would happily smoke another Year of the Tiger Limited Edition 2022.
The Davidoff Grand Cru No. 3 is the perfect example of the White Label experience as it provides a straight forward, flavorful experience with a low strength level. The line is pricey, but it delivers on flavor and construction, so it is definitely worthwhile. I'd have no problem smoking more of these.
