Awhile back I wrote one of my most controversial reviews of the Davidoff Short Perfecto. It seems that many of the Davidoff lovers came out to bash my review, and I don’t blame them. I was so disappointed with the Short Perfecto that I only smoked one stick and did not want to revisit it. So I decided to give the Special Series a second chance this time and properly give it a fair shake. So I went out of my way to procure a few samples of my favorite vitola- the robusto. I had high hopes in Davidoff proving me wrong. So did they succeed in turning this Davidoff sceptic into a believer?

The first thing that came to mind was elegance. The label has a sophisticated look that makes this cigar seem like a gentleman’s cigar. Along with its classy look, the wrapper is smooth and the construction is very strong.

The wrapper also gives off a scent of soft fruit and rich tobacco. The foot smells pretty much the same, but with a little more aroma. I cut the cap to check the pre-draw and the draw was good. It also left a gentle pepper and plumy flavor on my palate. At this point, everything is good, the construction and quality of the cigar is definitely there. So let's find out what kind of flavors this Davidoff has to offer.

It has been a loooooonnnggg time since I smoked my last Davidoff, so I thought it would only be appropriate to revisit them again. Awhile back, I picked up a variety pack of Opus X’s and decided to throw in some Henke Kelner smokes along with the shipment. The hitchhikers in the Opus package were the Avo Heritage Short Robusto (future review coming) and the Davidoff Special Short Perfecto. I like smaller format cigars, and really took an intrigue in the little perfecto shape from the Special Series. I knew I was taking a gamble purchasing it at $13, but sometimes gambles pay off. So check it out below:

What I love about Davidoff cigars is the fact that they are widely available. Sometimes it's good to be a huge transnational company! I don't get to find boutique cigars around here very often, but I have plenty of choice when it comes to Davidoff (+ Avo, and lately Camacho) smokes. So I wasn't at all surprised when I found the latest blend, Puro d'Oro, at my local shop. Thankfully the weather is getting better, which allowed me to enjoy this great-looking corona outdoors.

The name Davidoff is nearly synonymous with luxury. The name also has a reputation for quality and excellence. There is a lot of great information about the man and the company on their website Davidoff.com. One other commonly held perception of Davidoff is mild cigars and there are many smokers in the cigar community that mistake “mild” to mean “flavorless”. The Special R is the first Davidoff cigar I have had the pleasure of trying. No matter what line of Davidoff Cigars you might be interested in, the fact is they are all pretty expensive, almost universally costing more than $10 a piece. With my predisposition towards strong robust cigars, I admit that I allowed their mild reputation and lofty price tag keep me away up until now.

I have a friend who is a fan of Davidoff and more precisely their blender Henke Kelner. I have listened to him rail against the the idea that Davidoff only makes mild cigars and one of the lines he liked to use as an example of a more robust offering is the “Special” line of Davidoff cigars. So I was happy to be able to review this particular Davidoff. The Special R is not a mild cigar. I found it to be a solid medium bodied smoke with robust flavors balanced by excellent subtleties making for an engaging smoke. A core of smooth and chewy flavors of espresso and earth were complemented by more subtle notes of oak and nuts and an almost buttery feel on the palate. At times I picked up flashes of slightly sweet, almost caramel like notes on the finish. The construction was exquisite with a perfect burn, nice ash, and a spot on draw. I found the Davidoff Special R to be a very enjoyable, elegant smoke.

This super limited cigar is only available at Davidoff retail stores. My Davidoff Royal Robusto purchased from the Madison Avenue store. It is the second in the Royal Series, the first being the incredible Salamone.

The cigar starts out smooth and creamy with some woody notes along with an underlying creaminess. That Kelner “musk” is also present in full effect.

The burn is dead even and it draws like a dream.

As I smoke this, and enjoying every minute of it, I can’t help but wish that all cigars are made and blended this well, just at a sixth of the price!

As I finish it up, I get ample wood and cream, along with a faint hint of white pepper and coffee notes on the finish.

Just another incredible cigar from Mr. Kelner!

I had this little cigar sitting in my humidor for over 3 years and decided it was time for a revisit. I used to enjoy this cigar, but I abandoned it because of its exorbitant price. It had been so long since I smoked one that I only vaguely remembered what it tasted like, but I found a short online review I did the last time I smoked one, which was 2 years ago. According to my review, I thought it was medium bodied and sweet with hints of honey. Here is what I think of it now...
