The Davidoff Special 'R' is exquisitely handmade with a diverse blend of the finest 4-year-aged Dominican tobaccos finished in a stunning U.S. Connecticut wrapper. A robust *evening* cigar with a distinctive, cedar-aged character, extraordinary depth, and a sweet aroma. (Presented without cello.)
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.
