Blind Cigar Review: Davidoff | Robusto Real Especiales 7

“In terms of transitions or flavor profile changes this cigar really didn’t have any. That’s not to say it wasn’t an enjoyable smoke though. The core flavors of pepper, cedar, sweetness, leather, and espresso worked really well together. I couldn’t say that this cigar wowed me but it was a really nice cigar with just enough going on to keep my interest. Depending on price I would say you should definitely give this cigar a try. ” -Jeff (ExpendableYouth)

Quick Cigar Review: Davidoff | Winston Churchill Limited Edition 2019 The Traveller

This cigar really surprised me with the flavors going on. It started out with wintergreen mixed with cinnamon then it transitioned into wood, chocolate and finally honey. The burn and construction were both excellent, I mean c’mon it’s Davidoff you pay for what you get. This was a very good smoke if you have the money and feel like treating yourself I highly recommend it.

Quick Cigar Review: Paul Garmirian | 25th Anniversary Connoisseur

It kinda caught me off guard how slow this cigar was burning. I was about an hour and twenty minutes in and only halfway done. The burn was pretty wavy and I was tempted to touch it up a few times but let it run its course and it started burning razor sharp after the halfway point. The draw was just a tad looser that I normally like but the quality and quantity of smoke was unreal. The end kinda left my head spinning and I’m glad I had eaten before I started this review or I would have been in trouble. If you enjoy slow burning, strong, rich cigars I highly recommend picking up a few to try.

Blind Cigar Review: Davidoff | Chef’s Edition 2018

“This was a decent stick with plenty of flavor transitions from third to third. The thick luxurious flavors proved ample enjoyment and relaxation. The only downside I had was with the burn as a result of an uneven construction during the first half of the cigar. Something I’d like to try again before I decide if it’s a must try….” -John A.

Quick Cigar Review: Davidoff | Superior Toro

Overall, this was a very tasty cigar with many flavors one doesn’t typically get with many sticks. I thoroughly enjoyed the sweet creamy flavors that exuded from the cigar. The burn was spot on and construction near perfect. The only issue was the super flaky ash, which ended up all over me as bits and pieces would separate from the main bulk. Worth $32? Maybe as a celebratory smoke or if you want something that is a change of pace that is a mild/medium profile. Thumbs up on this masterpiece.

“This was a very flavorful, well executed, mild cigar. The constant reminder of sweetness paired with the various other notes made this cigar a pleasure to smoke.
