These poor cigars have been lonely...real lonely. In April of 1997 Top25Cigar was born. This review is an Anniversary of sorts for us, as the first box of cigars ever purchase under the Top25Cigar name happened on March 1, 1997, a full month before we first published the website. It just so happens, these are those cigars. These poor cigars have been lonely...real lonely. Instead of inflict any more time on these poor souls, we took 10 of the last 12 cigars, and sent them out for review. Perhaps this will give us the chance to answer the question of whether ageing really does help a cigar. As you can see from our picture the normally creamy white Davidoff band had begun to yellow, giving the 5000 an antique glow. We can't remember our initial thoughts on this cigar, but the fact that they had sat unbothered in our humidor for over 4 years should tell us something. Once lighting the Davidoff, the ageing question soon began to answer itself. The tip lit without events, and soon developed into a fine grey ash. The wrapper, a rich cocoa brown, almost seemed like it had aged to match the yellowing band. Any harshness that had appeared in earlier versions of this smoke we're long gone. The standard "spice" that is evident in the "thousands" series from Davidoff was still very much present, and very stable throughout the smoke. "I'm not sure how to describe this cigar without using the word creamy. "I felt like I was smoking a cloud, this was a dream. The smooth flavor was the same throughout the smoke." Those comments were consistent with everything we heard back about this cigar. A feathery soft smoke, with enough spice to keep you interested. So what do you do if you want your own 4 year old Davidoff 5000? Follow a very simple recipe...buy a box, deposit in very back of cabinet humidor, then locate one of those mind erasers from "Men in Black" and zap yourself. you will need to forget the smokes to ever let them reach 4 years.
