Not a pleasant smoke. Very harsh when first lit then mellows out somewhat. Very dry without flavor or taste. Cigar burns hot. Construction and draw perfect. Definitely smokes like a much cheaper cigar.
I really looked forward to trying the Davidoff R series sticks, and I was extremely disappointed. The construction, burn and draw are superb, but the flavor was nonexistent. I was told that those were mild, but they are in fact flavorless, grassy and very harsh to smoke. What a shame.
Very glad I tried the sampler so I wouldn't have to work my way through a box of these overhyped cigars.
Best cigar to date. Full, almost creamy smoke. Very nice.Will be ordering more. Tried with the 5 Robusto Sampler.
Elegant & flawless. With the "Special R", Davidoff shows us what the "Good Life" is all about!
As with all Davidoff's the quality was right on, had a nice aroma, even burn and very nice draw, BUT, having smoked several sticks the flavor is what you shell out the $$ for and it was definitely NOT on! Dry,woody and flat. Thousand series to me is much better.
