Review Notes: Davidoff is hard to find in my area, and when I have found them they are pricey--so I hadn't tried one yet. Luckily, a Ky Derby event I attended last night had Davidoff as on eo f their sponsors so I was graced with a couple of freebies. I anxiously fired up the Entreacto this morning. First, the construction and appearance where beautiful. Nice oily wrapper, elegant band, and just the right "firmness" to the touch. Pre-light draw was great and the unlit cigar had a wonderful high quality tobacco aroma. It lit up quickly and burned perfect throughout, giving off ample amounts of thick, creamy white smoke--surprisingly so for a 43 guage stick! I did downgrade construction for something that may sound "picky"....It was the most difficult band in the world to remove! It certainly wasn't going to slip off of the cigar, and I believe it was held on with super glue! I ended up destroying the nice looking band, and putting a small tear in the wrapper. Why is this such an issue? This cigar is only 3" long so you get to the band in very short order. Ideally it should slip off nicely before you light up. Flavor is unfortunately what brought the score down a notch for this cigar. Medium-strong in body, but not at all "harsh", it just seemed to lack any variety of flavors. I wasn't really "wowed" like one would expert for a cigar with the price and mystique of the Davidoff line. The last inch burned a little hot, and left a slightly bitter aftertaste. I would try these again, but I think they are about $2.00 a stick overpriced.
