This is a very good cigar even with some of the issues that I ran across. The draw at the halfway point became very very tight. The burn never suffered because of it though and the ash fell at one inch increments almost like clockwork. The strength started at medium and then shot up to full and never backed down. Overall, this is an excellent exclusive for The Privada Cigar Club especially for a lancero.
I had high expectations going into this cigar with it being the 115th anniversary and all the hype over the last year. I have to say it did not disappoint as I enjoyed the flavor profile from beginning to end. I had to touch up the burn once or twice but overall it performed outstandingly. While the cigar is on the pricey side I would happily light up another given the chance. Highly recommend this cigar.
I always look forward to the anniversary cigars from Miami Cigar. From the 25th anniversary of the company to celebrating Nestors 70th anniversary to the 75th I just smoked. The packaging on these are always stellar and cool to keep around. The humidor from the 25th is still one of my favorite pieces and tho only desktop humidor I still utilize. I often find myself attracted to buying Salomon size cigars and never find time to smoke them. I was excited to finally sit down and spend 2 hours and 40 minutes with this cigar. It was well constructed and only required a few burn corrections throughout and the draw after the first few puffs opened up and had just right amount of resistance. The flavors profile while fairly consistent in each third would constantly alternate between flavors. One moment I would get the sweetness strong and in your face and it would then switch to coffee etc. Making it a very interesting smoke. Highly recommend this cigar and hope to pick up more.

This was a truly wonderful experience. This cigar is box worthy several times over. Construction was nearly perfect as well as draw and burn. I really feel if it was closer to full i would have been more happy but that is simply a personal problem between me and the cigar. All personal problems aside, go buy and smoke this cigar.

It does everything so well it's hard to find a fault with it. If I'm being nit-picky, it smoked a little fast for it's size. The smoke output was phenomenal, the burn was almost razor sharp though out, the draw was perfect, and the flavor profile evolved all the way through. I'm not a flavored cigar fan but I'm a fan of this one. I remember smoking this at IPCPR and feeling that it was in the top 5 new cigars at the show. It was actually the best cigar that I smoked that day and was teased relentlessly for it. Trying it for a second time now, it holds up the previous experience. Honestly, give it a try and be open to the experience and I think you'll be very surprised at how good this actually is.
The relights kinda hurt this one for me. I think I had to touch up once and outright relight it four times which was weird because it would just go out the moment after I took a draw. The flavors were very unique and I can't recall the last time I had a cigar with this upfront level of cinnamon in the profile but my tongue feels like its been rubbed raw from the experience. It sounds a bit harsh but in actuality this is a fantastic cigar as far as the flavors and smoke output is concerned.

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.
This cigar while the first two thirds had a similar profile this for sure wasn't a bad thing. Enjoyed this cigar from beginning to end and always happy for that next puff. I have smoked plenty of the Julius Caesar in other sizes and have to say this perfecto was a treat. If you have a Diamond Crown lounge near you pick one up!
I dug this cigar, there was a lot going on with it. I get patchouli, wood, chocolate and gourmet coffee flavors throughout the entire cigar. The draw was a little more snug than I like, but no complaints. It burned very well. I only needed to touch it up a couple of times. Really nice construction...the cigar burned cool and only ramped up in strength on the final 3rd.
