This is the very first cigar I’ve smoked from the Privada Cigar Club. I’m pretty excited!
First thing you’ll notice is the band; this is not the style you would usually associate with Davidoff. The custom collaboration brings an edgy urban vibe to this limited edition.
Now this is a decent sized torpedo coming in at 7″ x 52. Pre-light scent and the cold draw is of sweet barnyard with very light resistance.
I’m starting to become a big fan of Connecticut Shade wrappers, I like the mild refined flavours that they are usually associated.
Lighting up will find you velvety smooth smoke with a hint of spice. After five minutes or so the resistance tightens to produce the perfect draw with great smoke output.
Around the second third and thirty minutes in musty earth and barnyard show, ending with a slight sweetness. You will get hints of cedar and allspice right throughout.
The last third doesn’t go quietly. Strength ramps up to just below full with a very brief floral flavour adding to the list. All the while staying smooth, sweet and balanced.
What a Great start from the Privada Club!
