When I bumped into Davidoff Of London I was very excited to direct myself to the new Davidoff 50th anniversary. I almost never smoke new world cigars but when you talk about Davidoff 50th anniversary you tell yourself about what was happening 50 years go. When in 1968 the genius Zino Davidoff started his journey with an amazing Cuban Chapter.

Juan López is an old cigar brand in Cuba, dating back to somewhere around 1870, but it is not a very well-known brand. There are three regular production sizes: the Petit Corona, the Selección No. 1, and the Selección No. 2. Until 2006, Juan López also manufactured the Panatelas Superba and a Corona. In the recent years, Juan Lopez was mostly known for its regional editions, and we've reviewed quite a few of them on the blog: the Don Juan (Benelux, 2014), the Seleccion No. 3 (Benelux, 2010), the Maximo (Switzerland, 2008), the Short Torpedo (Caribbean, 2008), the Ideales (Austria 2011)...

Today I am excited to share with you the latest of all, the Juan Lopez Punto 55 Exclusivo Francia. This 2018 release is a montesco format and best known as the Romeo Y Julieta Wide Churchill size.

I was very fortunate to crack one box of the awaited Habanos 2017 Limited edition: the Cohiba Talisman.
We have seen many of these cigars on the different social medias even though the launch event is on the 8th of November in London. Hunters and Frankau, the UK distributor of Habanos, got the opportunity to organise the official launch. That said we should all get worried about any Talisman around on the grey markets.
If I decided to write a review about this unofficial release, it is because I am 100% sure about the provenance of the box and we were few from the industry around the table to have the chance to taste it.
