This cigar has a dual band both black, white and gold.
The cigar itself is a nice rich brown leather in color with some slight reddish hues that makes it glow. Slightly toothy to the touch. Finished with a triple cap.
Aroma – Sweetness, cedar and a mild barnyard.
Type of Cut – V-Cut
Cold Draw – Musty cedar like wood notes with a sweet finish.
First third – This starts with a nice wood and sweet leather flavor mixed with spice and light pepper. Long lasting leather and pepper finish to each draw. Burn is sharp. Ash is mid gray.
Second Third – Leather continues to pound the palate along with a nice coffee note but a slight chocolate raisin flickers on the finish. Really smooth medium plus bodied smoke right now. Ash fell at the 2-inch mark right at the beginning of this third.
Final Third – Sweet leather, coffee and rich earth light up the palate in the final third. There is a nice pepper on the finish that sticks on the back of your throat.
Wine – Emmolo Merlot
Whisky – Knob Creek Single Barrel
The Davidoff Winston Churchill The Late Hour was a rich flavor bomb that I enjoyed from start to finish. The flavors were pronounced and distinct, which is always a plus for me. The price point doesn’t make it an everyday cigar, but this is a great choice for that holiday or special occasion with friends and fellow cigar aficionados.
