Wow, this is one beautiful cigar. It is satiny and smooth to the touch. The cellophane is yellow from 13 years of contact with this beautiful Connecticut Shade wrapper.
The pre-light draw was easy and the cigar lit very easily from the flame of my IM Corona lighter. The flavors, as expected were mild, but numerous. I was hit with waves of cream and wood, leather and nuts, with some of the Kelner mustiness thrown in as well.
The ash burned red hot leaving the most striking white ash I have ever seen. It did not heat up the cigar too much and the burn was dead on even. The exhale is rich with creamy coffee and nuts with some leather and grass.
The Davidoff Mille 3000 burned flawlessly another example of the artistry of Henrik Kelner. I enjoyed every minute I spent with this cigar!
Overall the cigar was creamy and woody, mild but with a lot of flavor still after 13 years. It was a pleasure to get the opportunity to try it!
