Quick Cigar Review: Davidoff | Oro Blanco Score 96%

Quick Cigar Review: Davidoff | Oro Blanco

You get what you pay for here. A unique experience with clean defined flavors that were perfectly well balanced throughout the entirety of the duration of this ultra premium cigar. Complexity is unmatched to any cigar I’ve ever had making this smoke a dream. Construction and draw were phenomenal however this particular sample had some issues with the burn line until the second half where it caught up. Because of the fullness and richness of this medium to medium full bodied smoke, it is not something you’ll reach for (providing you have the available funds) everyday. This cigar is meant for those special occasions when you want something that screams quality in terms of very rich flavor that is defined, unique and unmatched to any other stick. Whilst not my sweet spot for flavor profiles, as it was a tad too sweet for me, this definitely goes into my top echelon of cigars I have ever enjoyed.

“This was a good cigar but it was pretty one dimensional. For the full bodied fan, this is a decent pick, but for the Smoker who likes them mild this might be a turn off. I’d smoke another one but won’t run out to pick up a box. ” -Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)

“I really enjoyed this cigar. There were plenty of transition to hold my attention with wood, floral, some nuts and quite a bit of milk chocolate. The interesting point to this cigar was the more I smoke it the lighter and creamier it got. I would definitely smoke this again. ” -Mickey T. (irratebass)

“I really dug this cigar even though it’s not something that’s in my normal flavor profile. While the flavors were consistent throughout they were fairly satisfying. I really enjoyed the saltiness begging me to have something close at hand to drink. The burn was excellent. The ash fell through each third. This cigar was just a solid performer from start to finish.” -Isaac M. (The Nothing)

“This was a dynamite cigar! I couldn’t have asked for a better smoking experience. The cigar had a lot going on in the flavor dept. First I was greeted with walnuts/pistachio which then moved to caramel, wood, earth/dirt and ended up with a sweetness that coated my lips. I will be seeking these out once I find out what it was. YOU SHOULD TOO.” -Mickey T. (irratebass)

Blind Cigar Review: Foundation | Menelik

“I think it’s better than the sum of its parts. It smokes great, the ash was impressive, I liked the shape and ascetics of the cigar. It just could have been a bit more interesting in terms of flavor. It’s by no means bland or wispy in flavors but I’d have to be in the mood for a tobacco flavor profile to really enjoy it at the time. Still, I would recommend this if the price was right and the flavors are in your wheelhouse. ” -Alan (Eulogy)
