The Davidoff Special Series Short Perfecto offers the discerning cigar smoker a medium to full-bodied, creamy smoke in an artful, perfecto shape. A blend of select, Dominican tobaccos and flawless Connecticut shade wrapper is what gives this cigar its unique flavor and aroma.
I've been wanting to try a Davidoff cigar but they are so expensive. I enjoy perfectos and found a 4 pack of these that wasn't too expensive from Famous so I ordered it. I let them sit for 2 days in my humidor after they arrived and smoked one. From the first draw I was hooked. So rich and creamy. Not a strong cigar like I usually smoke but so much flavor I didn't care. Perfect construction, burned razor straight and I almost burnt my fingers before finally putting it down. I've since smoked another and am going to try to leave the last 2 in the humidor for a few months and see if they get any better (which I'd find hard to believe).
This is possibly the best cigar that I have ever smoked. It has excellent taste and construction. It is smooth drawing and even burning. This cigar is superbly made out of fine tobacco.
I really do enjoy this cigar. The only problem I've ever had is that they tend to be a little too bitter at the beginning (leaves after 5-10 minutes.) The zeppelin shaped perfecto is my favorite of all cigars. I adore the Aurora Sapphire Pref., Zino Scepter Chubby, and this Davidoff. They are all good cigars, but in every case I believe you are paying for the name; the idea of luxury, the elite status of the stick/name, and the feeling you get when you burn a $20 stick that is also a great taster. Alas, there are smokes that are every bit as tasty, burn every bit as clean, are rolled just as perfectly, and hold their ash just as long that are 1/4 the cost per stick. But, there will always be companies that sell the idea of luxury, the feeling of being rich, and I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of these high end cigar brand's main buyers are blue collar Joe's. They are good, that's true, but I only buy em' when I've some extra money to burn, and what a way to burn it! ~Joshua~
I purchase a 4-pack of these short perfecto s expecting a really good quality cigar. I was left disappointed from the beginning, upon unwrapping the cigar from its plastic wrapper the tip of the edge of each cigar had a split in the cigar. This might have been caused by poor humidor storage at Famous, however I have never had any issues with other cigars from them. Once I got passed the split in the cigar, the ciagr burned nice and even. I settled into what was an average to below average smoke, their was very little in taste to leave any desire to order more. I have had other cigars such as Griffins that are made in the same Davidoff factory, that are significantly less expensive and had a better wrapper quality and taste.
