The World Cup is in full swing, and so is the summer, which means it’s the perfect time for smoking.  Are either the Davidoff Colorado Claro Aniversario No. 3 or the Cremo Capa Caliente worthy of your time?  Keep reading to find out.

Davidoff Colorado Claro Aniversario No. 3

Davidoff boosted its Colorado Claro line late last year by adding the Aniversario No. 3, and here’s how they described the cigar in the official press release:

“Davidoff stands for expertise and quality supported by deep heritage and craftsmanship to deliver unforgettable moments of pleasure. The Davidoff Colorado Claro series is expanding with the addition of the highly regarded Aniversario No. 3. This rare Davidoff series has been produced in very small quantities for cigar enthusiasts and aficionados who seek an exceptional taste experience.”

Since I’ve smoked several Davidoff cigars in the past, and almost all of the have offered pleasant smoking experiences, I’m expecting the same from this Aniversario No. 3.  Will it deliver?  It’s time to take a closer look and find out.

The Colorado Claro Aniversario No. 3 measures in at 6 x 50.  The cigar features a filler and binder of tobacco that comes from the Dominican Republic, while the wrapper is of the Ecuadorian Connecticut Seed variety.  On a side note, the wrapper is said to give the cigar a stronger taste than the Cuban varietal it mimics.

If you’ve smoked Davidoff cigars in the past, you’ll find no surprises with the appearance of the Colorado Claro Aniversario No. 3.  It has the typical white and gold Davidoff band at the top, as well as a smaller band beneath it that displays the Colorado Claro moniker.  The cigar appears smooth as can be, and there’s a bit of reddish tint on the oily wrapper.  Only a few medium sized veins are visible, with no huge imperfections to speak of.  It feels firm to the touch and has no soft spots.  I pick up a pre-light aroma that’s sweet, while cold taste is spicy.

After lighting the Colorado Claro Aniversario No. 3, the cigar burns perfectly.  The burn is razor sharp and even from beginning to end, with no need for touch-ups or re-lights.  The white ash is solid and stays on well past an inch.  Smoking time is just over an hour long.
