Davidoff Goes Nicaragua, 15th Mar 2017
Reviewer: The Cigar Authority
The pre-light draw of the Davidoff Nicaragua has a sweet profile to it, hints of dry earth and black pepper shine through immediately. The draw is on the firmer side, but not by much. It’s easy to get a great flow of air through this one.
Once lit aromas of cedar and spice arose from the smoldering tobaccos, and the first draw gave a quick hit of mild pepper and toasted nuts. I can already tell this is going to be a well balanced smoke.
Towards the halfway point, intensity slowly builds into the fuller side of medium and there much more pepper present. Although there are a lot of peppery notes to this cigar, the sweetness from the Rosado evens out those sensations. Behind the pepper and sweetness, notes of cream, toffee and leather begin to show themselves.
In the final third of the Davidoff Nicaragua, cayenne pepper, coffee, oak and cedar truly make this cigar memorable. The finish lingers for a while, lasting well into the next draw. Overall, this was a very complex smoke, keeping my interest from start to finish.
