Davidoff Double 'R

Appearance:
One of the things that really caught my eye was the fact this cigar is almost veinless, which can be seen as a huge accomplishment for such a long cigar! This is a peculiarly impeccable and smooth looking cigar; the wrapper is of a rich chocolate brown shade. It comes with a simple, yet stylish label.

Construction:
This is an incredibly well built cigar! Both the burn and the draw were totally impeccable, you don’t get to smoke a cigar like that every day! The craftsmanship on this one was way beyond my expectations! Really outstanding if you consider this is a handmade product.

Flavour:
This is a cigar with a very complex blend of flavours. Some say it’s a very mild one, others say it’s a powerful one, but in my opinion this cigar has a little bit of everything! It starts out great with some woody notes, around the second third nutty notes kick in and join the woody ones. The final third is practically the same as the second third; no notable changes there.

Value:
This is a remarkably well built cigar, I’d say it’s exceptional in that department, but with an average price of $20 to even $30 I’d only recommend it to those who really enjoy Davidoff’s cigars, collectors or someone looking for a nice gift for another cigar aficionado.

 

 

 

Davidoff Aniversario #2

Appearance:   This cigar has a very sober, but at the same time very inviting look. The milky brown wrapper is the first thing that I noticed. Despite the occasion, the label of this cigar is very simplistic and sober, but it still manages to retain its elegance.

Construction: I noticed a few flaws in the construction of this cigar, but those flaws are not so grave. This cigar isn’t as well built as other cigars from Davidoff, that’s for sure. I could tell less effort was put into rolling the cigar; as a result the wrapper came off a little in certain spots. The burn was perfect though.

Flavour:  During the first and second third I got to savour a very mild mix of nutty, cocoa and leathery flavours. The last third was exactly the same. This seems to be a trend in Davidoff’s cigars. This is a very mild cigar, which is not bad at all if you are a fan of very mild cigars. Davidoff must have decided to take a really simplistic approach when creating this cigar; the flavour of this cigar could be better described as single-dimensional.

Value:  The price of a single Aniversario #2 cigar ranges from $22 to $27.40, $650.75 for a box of 25. In my opinion this isn’t the best investment, unless you are a very big fan of very mild cigars.

Gurkha Special Edition Beast

Appearance:
The Gurkha Special Edition Beast lives up to its name; it’s a massive cigar! A real beast! A very manly cigar with a really dark brown wrapper, with a really stunning label! Probably one of the most vivid and detailed label I have ever seen on a cigar, the mix of colours is just perfect. The label alone makes this cigar really stand out.

Construction:
This is a great cigar, but it isn’t so well built. I had some minor issues towards the end of my smoking experience; the wrapper started getting loose. Other than this minor detail everything was perfect.

Flavour:
The burn was excellent, at first I was a bit nervous it wouldn’t be that way, mostly because of the size, but I’m very happy to report it really was! This gentle giant opened up with a rich, but smooth combination of cocoa, leather, nutty and coffee flavours.
Sadly towards the end of the first third the coffee flavour vanished. The second third welcomed a mix of syrupy sweet, cocoa, leather flavours with an earthy cinnamon touch. The leathery flavour became stronger during the final third, but not too much.

Value:
The average price of The Gurkha Special Edition Beast is $16 per cigar, I’d say it’s not bad at all for this massive beast. I’d keep it at home though, mostly because of the loose wrapper issue mentioned early, you don’t want the cigar to fall apart on you in front of all your friends, do you?

La Aurora Cameroon Excepcionales

Appearance:
To be quite frank there is nothing exceptional about the appearance of this cigar. It’s a really average looking cigar. The wrapper is of a dark brown colour with a bit of a golden hue, the label is the classical Cameroon one most of you might already know.

Construction:
Not very happy with the construction of this cigar, as soon as I grabbed my first cigar I couldn’t help but to notice the roll of the wrapper was very rough; the lines are far from even! It was more than obvious the wrapper wasn’t applied cleanly.

Flavour:
This is a very multifaceted cigar! The flavours changed a lot during the first third, I could savour a lot notes: sugar cane, fruits, red wine, coffee and earth. Towards the end of the first third the cedar joined in. During the second third both the cedar and the pepper just vanished, bitter coffee notes, as well as sweet cane and strong spice took their place. The final third wasn’t very exceptional, the cedar notes returned but that didn’t last too long.

Value:
To be very honest I really think this cigar is too expensive, not a good investment. Maybe if it was just $4 instead of $13 we would have a good deal!

Padron Serie 1926 #1

Appearance:
Probably one of the most prominent and beautiful features of this exotic cigar is its night-black wrapper, on a secondary but not less important role is the contrasting label! This cigar is the perfect example of elegance and sophistication! The label bears the name of the cigar, with the scripted text ‘’Padron’’ in golden font, a very nice touch. Few veins are visible.

Construction:
This is a box pressed cigar, as a result it’s hard to the touch, but that’s not really an issue at all. Everything regarding the burn rate and draw was excellent; this is the cigar all the cigars out there should be compared to! A real masterpiece!

Flavour:
The flavour of this cigar can be better described as very ‘’complex’’. During the first third I could savour some really pleasant flavours: chocolate and coffee; a perfectly harmonious mix! In the begging this cigar starts out very soft but as the smoking experience progresses the cigar gains strength and those soft sweet flavours start morphing into spicy and earthy flavours, ending with a peppery flavour towards the end. Smoking this cigar is like reading a really good book that only gets better and better!

Value:
This is by no means a cheap treat, it’s very expensive, but believe me when I tell you it’s totally worth it. This is the very cigar you will want to have nearby when you have something to celebrate!

Padron Serie 1926 40th Anniversary Torpedo

Appearance:
In terms of appearance this cigar had to get 5 stars! It’s a true beauty among cigars! The first thing that caught my eye was its perfect and well defined shape, after that I couldn’t help but to notice the exquisite label, which in my opinion makes this cigar look even more elegant and sophisticated! The wrapper is dark brown; very few veins could be seen. Pure perfection!

Construction:
Excellent, this is with no doubt a first-class cigar, just flawless! It was so easy to light and smoke! I’d dare to call this the perfect cigar! A true master piece in every sense!

Flavour:
This is my favourite kind of cigar, because it’s basically a sweet cigar that blends in different sweet flavours in a very harmonious way! During the first third I could savour a very distinctive dusty cocoa flavour, along with some really pleasant expresso and earth notes; a true delight! I could also detect a hint of tea. Towards the end the cigar got a bit intense, but it never turned bitter or too strong to the senses (including the palate). It was an amazing smoking experience!

Value:
At a price of $26 per cigar you can be sure you are getting what you are paying for: an amazing first-class cigar! It’s no bargain, but this cigar is with no doubt worth it. I’d reserve it for really special occasions though.

Rocky Patel The Edge Habano Toro

Appearance:
Just like its brother, the Rocky Patel The Edge Habano Toro doesn’t stand out by its looks at all. This cigar has a dark brown wrapper that was slightly oily to the touch. Some very prominent veins can be seen as well. It had a nice scent, a combination of coffee bean and hay. The label is blue, it bears the ‘’RP’’ logo as well as ‘’the Edge’’ and Rocky Patel text on it.

Construction:

This cigar is definitely very well built; the burn was excellent as well as the draw. I had no problems with that at all, I was very pleased and highly impressed with how well constructed this cigar is, you could say this cigar made a really good impression on me.

Flavour:
The first third was dominated by 3 prominent flavours: coffee, pepper and hay. It’s important to note the hay note vanishes to make space for a woodsy one, completely taking the place of the former and joining the coffee and pepper. Towards the end the cocoa kicks in. The notes are almost the same during the second third, but towards the end the cedar (woodsy) flavour becomes a bit more intense. During the final third the cedar, pepper and coffee gained in strength, creating a perfect blend of very rich flavours.

Value:
This cigar has a great value; after all it only costs around $6, which makes it perfect for a daily smoke. Not to forget it features a really rich and balanced blend of flavours that most cigar aficionados will surely appreciate.

Rocky Patel The Edge Habano Torpedo

Appearance:
To be honest the overall appearance of this cigar is not very outstanding at all, but this is compensated later with its great complexion and flavour. The label of this cigar is quite simplistic, it only bears the RP logo; ‘’The Edge’’ text and the Rocky Patel scripted text in black font. The wrapper is of a medium brown colour, several seams and veins are visible.

Construction:
This is a very solid cigar, the burn was excellent and I had no problems with the burn rate either. This cigar might not be the best looking, but at least is a very well built one!

Flavour:
During the first third pepper was the dominant flavour, but a secondary cherry note was also detected. Other secondary notes joined in the mix as the smoking experience progressed: caramel sweetness and wood. During the second third the black pepper flavour was still dominant; the only change I could notice was the cherry notices getting weaker. The wood notes mentioned earlier morphed into a very pleasant coffee flavour. The final third was dominated mostly by the wood and black pepper notes, it was spicy. The other secondary notes mentioned earlier were still there, but not as noticeable as before.

Value:
It’s a great cigar for all those cigar enthusiasts who enjoy full bodied cigars, perfect if you are in search of a great daily smoke! Whether you are a novice cigar enthusiast or a more experienced one, I’m sure you will enjoy this cigar.

Schrader Hispaniola Doco-Est

Appearance:
This cigar is sold in a very elegant and smooth looking wooden coffin, bearing the ‘’Schrader’’ name. The coffin itself is a really sophisticated touch, but the overall appearance of the cigar won’t disappoint you either. The overall look of this cigar screams special limited edition; starting with its delightfully aged soft oily (slightly) wrapper to its sober, but very unique label, this cigar is something special!

Construction:
The colour of the wrapper could be described as a reddish brown; several veins can be seen running up and down the whole cigar. The wrapper of this cigar emanates a really mild aroma, barely noticeable; the wrapper itself is very soft to the touch and slightly oily. As peculiarity that should be mentioned, the cigar has a blossom of tobacco sticking out of its bottom, similar to a little fuse, a very interesting touch!

Flavour:
I’m actually not surprised about the eccentricities regarding to the flavour of this amazing cigar, at least not with that price tag! During the first third I could savour notes of creamy cedar, bitter espresso, chocolate, leather and hay. It was a perfect blend of flavours! Towards the end of the first third I experienced a pepper spice blast all over my palate. I could also sense an orange sweetness that was coming and going.

The second third was very sweet, starting with an orange sweetness and then progressing into a cherry sweetness. Notes of cocoa, leather, grass, earth and creamy cedar were present as well.

The final third of this cigar is practically the same as the second third, the only difference is that both the cherry sweetness and the pepper flavour are much weaker, but the other flavours are the same.

Value:
This cigar isn’t only a special edition one, but also a limited edition; only 11,500 cigars were produced! With an average price of $19.20 per cigar and $863.99 for a box with 50 cigars, it goes without saying these cigars should be reserved for collectors or for a truly special occasion. If you are a real aficionado, shop with confidence, I can guarantee you won’t be disappointed!
