Davidoff is one of the most famous cigar brands worldwide. The brand was first famous for its Cuba cigars until 1991-1992. Then for their Dominican cigars. But in the past few years we have seen them exploring the world with new complex blend such as this Winston Churchill Late Hour.

Appearance
One has to admit, Davidoff has done a fantastic marketing job when it comes to the visual aspect of its brand in general. The Winston Churchill line, just like the man itself, has so many different profiles and each well designed.
This new Late Hour band, highlights a deep gold embossing over a black lacquered type of finish band. This colour scheme really express the luxurious time you will spend with this cigar.
The wrapper is maduro from Ecuador. The cigar looks greatly rolled (typical for Davidoff), with a nice feeling to it.

Tasting

1st Part
As expected when is comes to a fine Davidoff cigar, the draw is great and the there are noting to say about it.
Te cigar starts medium, developing an intense caramel flavour profile with a slight spiciness at the beginning that slowly disappears.
As the cigar burns, the ash doesn't stay long on the cigar and is rather loose. I would expect nice and ling ash to follow this great flavour profile but instead it falls like powder in the ashtray...

2nd Part
Not much development on the second third. You still have this great sweetness being very present. Hints of cocoa and dark coffee are present as well. The Late Hour Robusto doesn't over heat and this second part gets lighter than the first. The density of smoke is high and the aroma very peasant.

3rd Part
If I had to describe this last third with one word it would be "SWEET". The sweetness intensity high high however the flavours gets really complex and very enjoyable.
A woodiness appears melted with hints of nuts and roasted coffee. The finish is long and this sweetness lingers on the palate. The cigar is really well balanced in terms of strength and flavours.
