"Davidoff did OK getting out of Cuba"

Review Notes: Pre-light and upon lighting, there is just a whiff, a passing glimpse, of mustiness. Not so much to take away from the overall flavor, but enough to call to mind similar nuances found in, for instance, Upmanns and Cohibas from Cuba. It's not a sign of poor aging or storage, but rather a herald of a sublime experience to follow. Balance is the key here. The tastes that so many seek-- spice, wood, leather & cream-- come in time and with some sublety. But all of them appear, and in wonderful proportion, with none dominating the experience. I would call the strength medium, and recommend that this stick be savored with a clean palate and an open mind.

"Dream Cigar"

Review Notes: I have been smoking cigars for 2 Ĺ years and my top cigar brand is the Rocky Patelís till now. The Special R is the first cigar I have had from the Davidoff line and may I say this is a fantastic stick. By far the best draw I have ever had in a cigar. The construction of this stick is incredible and flawless. Itís a full mouthful of smoke, and the ash stayed on for half the size of the stick (over 2 inches). The flavor was unique to me, something I have never experience before. It had a creamy leather taste through out the stick, but during the middle it had a toasty oak flavor. I felt a slow moving buzz sneaking in while the pleasant aromas infuse my space. I always wonder what a Cuba cigar would be like since I never had one, but if I had to dream up a Cuba cigar then I would say it is like a Davidoff Special R cigar since this is the best cigar I have ever had so far.

Review Notes: The flavors were just ok and not worth talking about. Somewhat smooth but just not that impressive at all. Glad it was a gift.

"High-End Price with Good Overall Experience"

Review Notes: I picked this cigar and a Intenso Robusto up at the same time and smoked this one on the spot. Great construction and pretty good pre-light aroma. I was on a tight schedule and even though I smoked it a little hot (good nicotice buzz) it never got harsh or sour. It did develop some very woody overtones about half-way in and finished a little weaker than I thought but it was a great mild-medium smoke. Too expensive for everyday but a good special occasion 'gar.

Review Notes: This is the best medium blend out there. The tastiness of the quality tobacco is unparalleled. The taste is not complex, but consistently excellent. The first cigar to come to mind when I hear "fine cigars" is the Special Rs
