Back2Back Connecticut by Davidoff Cigars Review
It was in 1968 when Davidoff first launched its Davidoff-branded White Label cigars. With 2018 marking the 50th anniversary, Davidoff is planning a series of activities to commemorate the milestone. Activities include a series of events, specialty commissioned cigars and accessories, and special bands that will adorn several of the White Label releases.
“This is a very special year for us. We look back with pride on 50 years of creating exceptional, original cigars and accessories, but more importantly, we look forward with a great sense of exhilaration to new, unknown horizons that will bring exciting, undiscovered experiences for those who love cigars,” said Charles Awad, Senior Vice President – Chief Marketing Officer at Oettinger Davidoff AG in a press release.
Several Davidoff White Label lines, including the Davidoff Aniversario and Davidoff Signature will receive commemorate 50th-anniversary white label lines.
When the Davidoff brand launched in 1968, production was handled in Cuba. In 1989, Zino Davidoff was unhappy with the quality of the product he was getting from Cuba and made the decision to move production out of that country. By 1991, Davidoff had established its base of operations in the Dominican Republic.
I must say this cigar had a creamy with a silky feel with plenty of cedar notes on the pre-ought aroma. Your classic looking 6×60 and somewhat solid to the touch. It really reminds me of a review we did of the Room 101 Big Payback back in 2015 not quite a 7×70 but ya. https://theaveragejoescigar.com/2015/04/17/room-101-cigars-the-big-payback-cigar-7×70/
An effortless draw with thick and spicy smoke though and produced big clouds of flavorful smoke right out the gate. Then the cigar had a reduction in the flavor bomb but as fast as the spice came it almost went away. Flavors seem to take a step in the back while there was plenty of tobacco notes and very light spice through my nose.
A creamy texture that’s now creeping into play as the cigar was smoke. Some lingering pepper on the palate and through try nose while holding on to a really nice almost white ash. It’s staying steady as in medium strength and medium body no real change in growing which was looking forward to since it’s a Davidoff brand.
Revealing an underlying sweetness on the palate and in the aroma. Some nutty texture and an almost biscuit flavor lingered on the palate. Spiciness on the finish was met with cedar and wood notes.
An underlying sweetness on the finish was met with spicy cedar and wood notes. Excellent construction with an even burn and nice overall development. Although I really wish I could have gotten something that held up the Davidoff name of top quality cigars I didn’t really get that from cigar. Not overly complex with some changes in intensity as well flavor and aroma. Medium body and strength all around with a long and earthy finish.
