As the cold tasting implied, the cigar starts off with some pepper and creaminess. During the second third these flavors give way to some cocoa, tobacco, caramel, and even some coffee. The cigar wraps things up by adding in some wood, earth, and spice, in what culminates in a very interesting smoke.

From the moment I pulled the cigar out, I knew I would enjoy it - maybe that is a little bit of bias from me, since I enjoy the brand so much. That and I am a sucker for limited edition cigars - its like settling in for the big game - your expectations are much higher. With a burn time of roughly two hours - and considering the price and limited number available - this obviously isn't an any time cigar. You'll want to savor it on special occasions and your friends should understand if you choose not to share! As I said earlier, this bad boy goes for nearly $22 a pop and $220 per box, but in my book, it is worth every penny. Here's hoping they come out with the 2014 edition!

The Davidoff Masters Edition 2013 Club House earns a rating of four out of four stars.

Leccia Tobacco White

Leccia Tobacco White comes out of the Leccia Tobacco Company, owned by none other than Sam Leccia himself. it is the first blend released by the company and is half of the notable Black and White line. Sam Leccia used to work with the Oliva Cigar Company, but split and eventually launched his own company under his own moniker. Leccia is an interesting figure in the cigar world, and if you ever have the time, I would suggest doing a little Googling and see what you can find - definitely good reading!

An interesting note before we begin this portion of the review - if you are curious about the Black and White line, it consists of two different blends - the black hailing from the Dominican Republic, while the white comes from Nicaragua.

The Leccia Tobacco White comes in four sizes - 4x46, 5x52, 6x50, 6x60. For this review, I decided to go hog wild and light up the 6x50 - I didn't think I would have time for the biggest member of the group, but wanted a good amount of "me" time. The Leccia White has an interesting makeup, including a throw-back to Sam Leccia's hometown of Pennsylvania. The binder is Ecuadorian, while the filler is a blend of Nicaraguan Ligero and Pennsylvania Seco - definitely an interesting mix I was curious to try. The wrapper consisted of an African Sun Grown. All told the cigar is advertised as medium to full-bodied, but looking at the leaves involved in its creation, I would have guessed full-bodied before lighting it up. Was I right?
