More info about purchasing Davidoff Double R cigars...
Today, for review is another long and expensive cigar from Davidoff. Unlike the Anniversario No. 2, the Davidoff Double R shows us some character in a perfectly constructed vitola. As usual, the price point makes you think twice before purchasing this cigar.
Impeccable, light and smooth colorado wrapper. It is almost veinless, which must be difficult to achieve for such a long cigar. The pre-draw is easy and mostly spicy.
This is a real masterpiece - the Double R is wonderfully constructed. Never noticed any burn or draw glitches. That's a cigar one can always count on.
I cannot say that the flavors of this cigar are very complex or multi-dimensional, yet it is a very pleasant smoke. It also found it stronger than other Davidoffs. Soft woody notes define the beginning, the cigar is already quite powerful (relatively powerful, that is). In the second third, nutty flavors are added to the bouquet which becomes much more pronounced and intricate. The last third does not bring much change, still the same cedary/hazelnut pleasant flavor.
The general rule for all Davidoff cigars is that they come at exorbitant prices. From my point of view, these are hardly justified but I am really getting addicted to these cigars... Just a look at these colorado wrappers and stylish bands makes me go crazy. So.. if you're a fan of Davidoff, the prices won't stop you. Otherwise, let me just tell you that better price/quality ratios exist on the market.
Overall Rating :
This is a very carefully constructed cigar, with a well thought set of flavors. The Davidoff Double R never failed me. It hit my pocket on multiple occasions though...
