Okay, here’s the brutal truth… I love Davidoff. Why? Because its expensive? Because old men love the brand? Because its a pain in the ass to find? No (okay maybe a little bit). Really, I love the flavor profile of a Davidoff cigar. Normally I dig Strong cigars, Dominican and Nicaraguan… But like the Epernay, I will take balanced and well aged over strong any day, but that’s hard to find. The Davidoff Entreacto (Spanish for “intermission” or literally “between acts”) is like a short petit corona, and it’s a little guy but has enough girth for complexity. The size and flavors are so elegant. I like to smoke one at the opera, or I slip one out of my breast pocket and puff on it after a symphony. It’s so refined in flavor. The epitome of mild, but not bland like a Macanudo, creamy, a tad papery, a bit nutty, with the slightest modicum of leather. The draw is so easy and the burn flawless! Anytime is a good time for this smoke, but I like it for a nightcap or a morning smoke with my coffee. The Profile of a Davidoff is so light and easy on the senses. Fresh on the palate, zero spice, and a touch of fruitiness. It’s a veritable bouquet of tastes. Almost like smoking the very essence of a brisk spring morning… You know those ones where the dew is still frozen to the blades of grass and the sun beats down on your face. Smoke one… Do it.
