Dunhill Cigars were produced in Cuba by Cubatabaco for Alfred Dunhill of London from 1982 to 1991. It was later offered in various countries afterwards, and it is now owned by British American Tobacco.
Dunhill Cigars have a rich history. Alfred Dunhill, founder of Dunhill cigars, opened his first tobacco shop in 1907 on Duke Street in London, and quickly became famous in England, racking up distribution deals with many Cuban manufacturers. Dunhill cigars were actually the cigar of choice for the famous and the royal family.
Throughout the decades, Dunhill has used its expertise to source the world’s finest tobaccos for their cigars. Today, the Dunhill Signed Range is made in Nicaragua with only the best aged tobaccos from its mother country as well as the Dominican Republic and Cameroon.
This cigar was firm to the touch and had a gorgeous hearty looking brown wrapper with a rich pre-light smell. There was also a slightly sweet smell on the foot.
1st quarter: A very easy draw yielded to some thick smoke with plenty of spice through the nose. There was some sweetness along with earth tones in the smoke. 2nd quarter: Its medium body and strength gradually built towards fullness. The cigar held onto a light and dense ash. 3rd quarter: The draw delivered full flavored characters with some sweet notes in the aroma. There was good complexity and the cigar intensified as it was smoked down. 4th quarter: A medium to almost full body flavor profile appeared. Its strength remained very consistent into the last quarter of the cigar. A leathery texture with a mild richness offered a great finish.
Dunhill Cigars Signed Range Corona is very flavorful with great body that builds slowly. It had a sweet flavor along with a few noticeable spices in the nose and on the palate. There were also big earthy notes that balanced out the overall flavor. Its excellent construction and good balance made it truly effortless to enjoy.
