    This cigar looks beautiful! Hardly any visible veins, the wrapper looks to me to have gotten darker with age, compared to the current Davidoffs which use Ecuadorian Connecticut wrappers. This has a little sheen on it and judging by the cellophane, this baby has been resting for a long time!

    I clip the cigar and the pre-light draw is firm but yielding, which I expected with this ancient panetela.

    As I light it am hoping that 10 years has mellowed this cigar out too much.

    Some of the first flavors I get is that unmistakable Davidoff/Kelner mustiness. The aroma is rich with sweet cream and as my buddy Matt likes to say, “the smoke is so chewy”.

    The ash burns white hot, but takes its time working down the cigar. The ash drops off after an inch and a half, and the burn is dead even.

    Halfway through this masterpiece, I start to pick up a little leather but a lot of wood. The exhale is rich with coffee beans and nuts.

    Davidoff Classic No. 2 is a very mild cigar, but is a very flavorful mild cigar, amazingly so after 10 years. it’s like this Kelner guy knows what he’s doing… 😉

    The draw was a little tight the first inch or so but opened up as I smoked it.

    The last half was wonderful, a smooth burn, tons of smoke and rich wooy, nutty flavors with a bit of coffee.

    My only complaint is that it was over so quickly!
