Review Notes: These are a staple in my humidor. There are a number of brands who sell small cigars in tins of 5 or 10, but the vast majority of those are machine made (although technically the tobacco used is still flavorfull) they result in a hardly pleasant smoking experience (too gritty, and not even in a romantic way). And while the hand rolled variety costs double the machine made ones, they are still a baragain considering they last a good 20 minutes or more (for a mere $2). Whats more, this is a proper Davidoff cigar; nothing in terms of taste, quailty, and construction has been compromised for this cigars small stature. It is said to have a Ecuador wrapper, but expect more of Connecticut broadleaf buttery delicateness than the pronounced chocolate/earth of a typical Ecuador leaf (because they are normally darker in colour). The overall taste, i liken to hazelnuts, and I attibute this to its Peruvian filler. Buttery and aromatic. And as I mention in the title, i find this a very chic cigar, that is, cigars of this size and shape. I don't support the current trend in these overpowering, brawny, phallic cigars. Especially amongst young men like myself, smoking such cigars comes off as most ostenatatious (unfortunately that may be the intention). But this cigar is the antitheis: aesthetically chic and understated in its sophistication.
