Davidoff Aniversario No. 3

davidoff aniversario 3

There are a small handful of cigar brands that occupy the “premium” category at cigars shops, and Davidoff is certainly one. On the higher end of the spectrum in cost, Davidoff cigars are definitely a treat. For me, it’s their construction that help exhibit that “premium” quality, and I love their soft, smooth wrappers.

As you can see, the Aniversario No. 3 displays its own beautiful, soft wrapper. On lighting the cigar, there’s a taste of woody spice, with a creamy note on the exhale. Wrapped in an Ecuador wrapper and filled and bound with Dominican tobacco, the Aniversario has a mild profile initially, but builds quite a bit into a medium-to-full-bodied smoke over time.

At about the halfway point, the woodiness is replaced by chocolate, which is the primary profile until the end, with continues spice notes on occasion, too. As expected, the Aniversario smoked well, and remained flavorful and enjoyable until I was finished — definitely a treat for a special occasion, though if your budget allows, a great Dominican cigar for regular smoking.

I smoked a Aniversario No. 3 size, a 6″x50 Toro that will run you about $24. The Aniversario is available by the box from Davidoff Geneva.

Davidoff Churchill The Late Hour

Davidoff Cigars are famously well-constructed and are most certainly some of the most premium sticks on the market today. The Davidoff Churchill Late Hour is a relatively new blend from them, using an Ecuadorian wrapper, Mexican San Mexican San Andres Binder, plus Dominican and Nicaraguan Filler.

The wrapper is silky-smooth, and it’s these soft, smooth wrappers that are one of my favorite things about Davidoff, in general. Once lit, the cigar has flavors of pepper and bitter dark chocolate with really great smoke output. As you smoke, the pepper mellows in favor of roasted peanuts and the cigar remains well-built and full flavored throughout.

I smoked a Late Hour Robusto size, a 5″x52 stick that will run you about $20. The Late Hour is available by the box from Davidoff Geneva.
