So lately I’ve been trying to think of different cigars to review that we haven’t covered yet on the site. It seems like we’ve reviewed some brands multiple times while completely ignoring others. So today I’m firing up the Millennium Blend to mark our first Davidoff review.
Name: Millennium Blend
Wrapper: Ecuadorian Sun-grown
Comes in: Box of 25
Vitola: Petit Corona (4 1/2 x 41)
It’s hard to beat Davidoff quality. Generally speaking their cigars are beautifully constructed, and this petit Millennium Blend was no exception. Major veins were absent from the chocolate colored wrapper and I could tell that the filler tobacco was bunched evenly. The cigar felt smooth to the touch and solid in my hand. I took a few sniffs of the wrapper and noticed a pleasant woody note. A similar aroma came from the foot of the cigar, however, it was a more robust aroma than the wrapper. All in all this cigar was pleasing to both the eyes and hands. Now it’s time to see if it’s pleasing to the palate.
I really enjoy this cigar and can seriously foresee myself smoking more in the future. Like I mentioned in the video, I had a couple a few years ago, and didn’t revisit the line until just a couple weeks ago. I was not disappointed! the Millennium Blend provided the same bold flavors that I enjoyed back then while maintaining a smooth balance. Unfortunately a $10-12 petit corona might not work it’s way into everyone’s budget, but I would suggest giving it a try if you get the chance.
