davidoff millenium collectionratings and scores

10 years later seemed like a good time to revisit the millennium.  We all remember the Y2K scares along with the plethora of millennium cigars that were released.  One of the most heralded releases was the Davidoff Millennium Collection.  These cigars eventually morphed into the regular release of the Davidoff Millennium Series.  The Davidoff Millennium Collection was produced in a limited number of 2500 boxes.  All the cigars in the collection were perfectos, including four Davidoff Millennium I Double Coronas, eight Davidoff Millennium II Churchill, and eight Davidoff Millennium III Coronas.  Each set also came with a certificate of authenticity, signed by Dr. Ernst Schneider, and Hendrik Kelner.


When first released, these puppies cost a bunch…then again they are from Davidoff, the same people that insist on wearing the tuxedos at the annual IPCPR conventions.  The box was gorgeous, and thusly I fell for the marketing and bought two boxes.  I ended up smoking a few, and then putting the boxes away into the back of the humidor.  A few months ago I came across them, and figured now was a good time to see how they have aged.

Imagine my surprise where upon doing a Google search, I found boxes of these cigars selling for over $4000.  It was lucky I saw this after smoking them.  If I had seen this before lighting the cigars up, I may never have put flame to cigar.  Since I did smoke them again, I might as well sure my thoughts.  I may never crack open that second box after seeing that price.

Looking back at notes from soon after I purchased the cigars, I found them stronger and spicier than your average Davidoff Thousands series, and frankly a nice change from the average Davidoff mild profile.  With the new found flavor and robustness, it’s no wonder these cigars made their way into the mainstream of the Davidoff line up.  All cigars in this collection had the same tobacco makeup, consisting of an Ecuadorian wrapped Perfecto with Dominican binder and filler.

The question is whether or not these beautiful cigars aged like the Mona Lisa or Joan Rivers?  For this un-scientific experiment I smoked one of each size cigar over a one week period.  I also looked back at some of my prior comments on the cigar, and compared and contrasted my thoughts from 10 years ago vs. my thoughts from my recent experience.
