Smoke Blog: Davidoff Special R

I have yet to meet a Davidoff I didn’t like.

Tonight: the Davidoff Special R.

Davidoff Special R

This cigar came in a three-stick boxed set I received as a Christmas gift, so I’ve been sitting on it a while. I really needed a cigar Saturday night, and a good one, so I picked this one.

I didn’t think a lot about the flavor as I had a lot of other things on my mind. I remember it being medium-bodied, clean in taste, with maybe a little leather. I remember it not tunneling despite the wind coming right into my face, and in fact it still had a nice, conical cherry every time I tapped its ash (it’s as pleasant as it sounds dirty).

It was the right cigar at the right time, just as a premium brand like Davidoff should be. I just wish they were easier to come by around here, as I only have one left in the box.

I wonder what tonight’s weather is supposed to be like…
