74. Davidoff Master Selection 2010 Toro Eladio Diaz Limited Edition

Store bought at Brobergs.

Location: This review was made indoors in a cigar lounge.

Wrapper: Darker brown shade, oily and silky smooth. A little bumpy but still with tiny veins.

Construction: A little squishy but still a good feel.

Cold draw: Barnyard and well fermented hay.

1st third: Wet oak wood, 65% dark chocolate, slight hint of espresso bitterness, black pepper on the lips. After maybe 1 cm it’s all wood and coffee.

2nd third: Oak wood dominates part 2 in the back, there is even an faint hint of hazelnuts and medium roasted coffee. A touch of of the dark chocolate returns.

The burn: Burns pretty quick, white-ish ash, stable and firm.

Smoke: Voluminous, white and cool to the touch.

3rd third: The dark notes keeps on giving.

Conclusion: It’s not heavy or strong, it’s just dark, like a oak wood that has been laying out in the rain for a very long time to rott. It’s different, not for everybody.

Result: In my book this is an 90 point cigar.

73. Davidoff Winston Churchill The Late Hour Robusto

Store bought at Brobergs.

Location: This review was made outdoors during an rainy day, it was 14°C.

Wrapper: Dark chocolate brown, silky smooth finish and tiny veins.

Construction: Firm but still a little squishy feel. It’s evenly filled.

Cold draw: A soft touch of hay nothing to intrusive.

1st third: Oddly enough it’s like a sweet dark chocolate, like a caramel touch. Oak in the overall background of this first part. A well aged wood with a walnut finish it’s dry but still nutty. There is even an salty touch to the lips.

2nd third: Most of the taste notes from part 1 is still there. It’s smooth, a light, very light touch of coffee lurks in the back and there is a “spicy” note like a touch of black pepper or just a raspy feel, similar to when you like a piece of oak wood (if anyone has ever done that).

The burn: Burns fairly quick, not so straight, wonky is the right word for it. The ash well its gray, feels like it’s really trying to become white. Fairly stable ash until you tap the cigar lightly and it falls.

Smoke: Well the smoke is a WOW! factor alone. Very voluminous, rich and creamy in texture and the draw is very light.

3rd third: Keeps fairly the same from previous parts except that I’m getting a little bit more raspy feeling on the tongue. Dark chocolate, a touch of medium roasted espresso, oak wood with a dry rough finish but still overall a smooth experience.

Conclusion: A maduro without the kick instead with a darker and smoother finish, familiar from the regular Winston Churchill series from Davidoff. Very likable experience.

Result: In my book this is an 93 point cigar.

43. Davidoff Royal Release Salomones

I was not given this, I bought it with my own money. Review Time!
Good but still a little soft construction. Oily, milk chocolate wrapper. Tiny veins.
First taste, toasted bread with a faint taste of coffee with cream. Very smooth.
Cool smooth and voluminous smoke. (It’s as smooth as a baby’s butt, if I’m allowed to make that statement 😂) The ash is a little light to the touch and falls of after 3cm. It’s really white which is always a good sign.
Starting on the 2nd part and I’m getting an oak taste, very delicious.
It gets a touch of black pepper spicy on the tounge. In a way it’s enjoyable since it changes and don’t stay the same all the way. The ash is more dark gray now aswell.
3d and final part, what a journey it’s been on. Now it has turned back to the toasted bread taste but with a harsher not since it’s quite warm.
In my book this would be a 92 points cigar. It’s excellent in the variety of taste and since I’ve been enjoying it for 3 hours now, what more can you expect it’s an Davidoff. /Cigarmaster André

14. Davidoff – Yamasa Piramides

Sponsored by Brobergs. First nose: Dark chocolate, black pepper, well aged Tobacco.
Wrapper look: Mid dark chocolate of the 50-60% variety. The overlay of the wrapper looking really good as all Davidoff.
First taste: Dark rich chocolate that leaves a dry feeling behind, some dry cedarwood notes lurk in the background. I get a slight hint of perfectly roasted coffee, not over roasted like most common brands, this is like roasted at the local tiny coffee shop that make their own blends after travelling to the farm an picking out the perfect one. Utterly perfect, guess that is what Davidoff strives for, perfection every time.
Im matching this cigar with a cocktail named Bord D’Or or as we Swedes called it Guldkanten (half cognac, half Swedish Punch and top it of with plum bitters). Together they are like Christmas, the dark chocolate notes matched with dry sweet fruits, it’s magical.
Half way point: it has gotten a bit more spicy but it hasn’t lost its balance.
9/10 Definitely a cigar I will come back to this autumn/winter, since it got a bit more flavour than most cigars in this price range it.
I picked it up at our local Davidoff store called Brobergs. /Cigarmaster André

4. Davidoff Nicaragua Toro Boxpressed

Sponsored by Brobergs.

Davidoff Nicaragua Toro Boxpressed
First nose: Dry cedarwood and slightest touch of earth.
First tastes: Medium rost of hasselnuts and the dry cedar.
1/3 in it feels like a super well balanced cigar (as most Davidoff) with a perfect construction as you can see as the ash don’t fall of without you forcing it off. Smooth flow and rich smoke.
2/3 in not much difference from the begging except the a slight sweetness lurks in the background. I feel a slight hint of menta but don’t take my word for it, it’s merely my opinion.
I smoked this with one of my favourite cognacs Léopold Gourmet Quintessence 30 Carats. I’d give this a score of 8/10, give it a try, i prefer the regular release of the Davidoff Nicaragua Toro but I think this is an interesting addition to the Nicaragua family.
This cigar can be bought at a Davidoff Cigars retailer near you soon, thanks to @brobergs1881 for giving me this opportunity to try this one out. /Cigarmaster André
