When you talk about the best cigars in the world, it would be sacrilegious to not mention Davidoff. For decades, the company has produced impeccably smooth cigars on levels to where other brands aspire. Winston Churchill Late Hour Robusto Habanos (5" x 52) are absolute knock-out cigars even by their standards. For this unique blend, Nicaraguan long fillers were aged in a Scotch barrel for six months and then added to Dominican fillers that are tucked into a Mexican binder. All tobaccos are delicately rolled by hand into an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, which gives the cigar a medium-to-full body flavor like no other.
Smooth cigar like a Davidoff with an extra sweetness (4.5*)
Oct 15, 2017
I've had a variety of cigars that were aged in whiskey or bourbon barrels and this is definitely my favorite one so far. It still has the perfect draw you can expect from a Davidoff. Flavor wise the whiskey barrel from Speyside adds a smoothness of floral tone and a bit extra sweetness to the cigar while not overpowering the flavors you get from a normal Churchill series. The only downside I would say is at flavor decreases around the final 1/4 of the cigar and it felt a bit plan at the end. I would suggest getting the Robusto over the Toro since they both carry similar characteristics therefore the Toro felt a bit bored at the end trying to finish it.
