Davidoff always has been synonymous of quality and luxury. Their cigar blends and lines have been changing during the years and now days the brand offer a lot more variety than ever. Davidoff cigars in the past were more popular to new smokers and their lines were mostly mild.Today Davidoff offers blends with tobaccos from many different country and different types ranges and strength.
In my humble opinion I sometimes considered Davidoff cigars a bit overpriced in comparison with other premium brands but we also need to think in all the people involved in every single Davidoff cigar from the field to your palate. Also is very rare and almost impossible to find a Davidoff cigar with construction issues. And for some unique blends they make is worth it to pay the price. In the past I have been a big fan of the Davidoff Puro D Oro line blended with 100% Dominican tobacco as the dream of Davidoff Master Blender Henke Kelner was to create the perfect Dominican puro. Sadly, Davidoff discontinued this unique blend…
In 2017 Davidoff impressed me once again with a totally unique blend. Davidoff Winston Churchill Late Hour.
Why unique? Not just because they used tobaccos from 4 different countries… Yes, you read right…
4 different countries!! Also, for a secret in the filler….
Ecuadorian Habano seed Marron Oscuro wrapper. Dark and rich in flavour.
Mexican Negro San Andres binder: Mexican tobacco is very hard to cultivate, age and ferment as a little mistake can ruin the entire process but if everything goes well you have one of the richest, sweet and intense cocoa flavour tobacco like the one used in this binder.
3 different Dominican tobaccos are used in this filler: San Vicente mejorado Viso, Piloto Seco, and Olor Viso. Nicaraguan Esteli Viso and the pearl and what makes different this cigar… A Nicaraguan Condega Viso aged for 6 extra months in the finest Scotch Cask barrels. The leaves are firmly pressed inside the casks. As the temperature in the closed casks rises, the tobacco enters a fermentation process. The rise in temperature is checked regularly to prevent the tobacco from overheating. After three months the tobacco is turned to the other side to age an additional three months for a total of six months. During this period the tobacco absorbs the aromas of the cask and whisky. The cask ageing leads to more oak sweetness and deeper flavours.
Since this line came into the market is won so many awards and received lots of positive comments and reviews from our customers.
