Cigar Review: Davidoff Winston Churchill The Late Hour Robusto
Davidoff Winston Churchill Late Hour Robusto
Size – Robusto
Wrapper – Ecuadorian Habano
Tobacco Blend – Nicaraguan, Dominican, Mexican
Pricing – $17.50
Body – Medium +
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 – Straight
Cold Draw – Musty cedar like wood notes with a sweet finish.
First third – This starts with a nice smoked wood and sweet leather flavor mixed with spice and light pepper. Long lasting leather and pepper finish to each draw. Burn is wavy and ash holds through the third.
Second Third – Leather continues to pound the palate along with a nice espresso note but a slight chocolate and smoky cedar 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
This cigar 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.
