A Trip To Brazil, 15th Mar 2017
Reviewer: The Cigar Authority
With the cap clipped, the Davidoff Escurio serves up notes of molasses and wheat over base note of hay. The foot serves up some hints of graham and hay with a faint spice that tingles the nostrils.
After toasting and lighting the cigar is comes off as salty. There is a note that is reminiscent of a pretzel that has been salted a little too much. As the salt subsides there are hearty notes of cedar and earth, with a subtle graham cracker in the distance and on the finish with a vegetal component on the retrohale.
The second third, cedar and earth continue to be dominant and the aroma of the Davidoff Escurio becomes floral. The floral aroma is enhanced on the retrohale with hints of lavender.
As the Davidoff Escurio comes to a close some nutty notes are added to the mix but cedar and earth remain dominant. The cigar has a salty finish and through the nose it remains floral.
