I imagine this is what a fresh Cuban Davidoff would have tasted like back in the 80's. I've been fortunate to have one that was almost 30 years old, so I know the profile, but in those 30 years, some strength is lost. I appreciated the Davidoff Nicaragua for it's Nicaraguan take on the classic Davidoff profile and it's perfectly balanced flavors. I appreciated the Escurio for how unique and different it was. But this, is something completely different. This is a truly full flavored cigar that teeters in medium-full strength and has such a great classic profile. This is a game changer, I can't believe I'm saying this, but I liked this cigar even better than the Box-Pressed Nicaragua.

"This was one of those smokes that comes along every so often- actually it’s pretty rare for me anyway, that just captivates your senses. The ol’ “Calgon take me away” commercial ran through my mind as a comparison… It was a phenomenal smoke, one that I hope, hope, hope I get to experience again and again. I pray that this stogie is one that fits my meager stogie budget because I gotta have some more of these. It was a little over an hour of peace & serenity and I loved every minute of it!" -Robert (NavyPiper)

"You ever anticipate smoking a cigar, and when you finally get the chance to smoke it it just meets all your expectations? Well that was this cigar for me. I smoked, and performed beautifully. It was exactly what I needed at the time. the cigar was very smooth, and elegant. There was lots of cream, some cinnamon and citrus flavors to hold my attention. I want, no NEED more of these.

"A textbook case of complexity and transitions, starting mild-to-medium and finishing medium-strong while hitting most of the flavors one would expect on the way. Hands down the best BMP smoke I've experienced to date." -Stefan (Stefan)

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.

"Great smoke. Amazing construction which has definitely contributed to the experience. Deep rich leather and nuttiness on bold display here. It's a flavor profile that I enjoyed a lot although there wasn't a lot of transitional stuff going on. I'd be happy to smoke these by the truckload, and I'd nub them every time. " -John I. (John I.)
"This is a blend for those who enjoy the deep earthy flavors that you usually find with Honduran or Cuban tobacco. Strong cayenne on the retrohale and just a slight sweetness on top of the earth gives the cigar a slight variation from the solid dirt and minerals that star in this stick. " -Lauren S. (Lauren S.)
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.

"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.
