This is the highly anticipated second release from their line commemorating the Chinese New Year. Last year being The Year of the Snake was highly successful and sold out almost immediately. This year should prove to be just as enjoyable as the last.
The cigar, in true Davidoff fashion, is perfectly constructed. It feels firm to the touch, no soft spots or imperfections. It has a well constructed cap with very few vein lines. It burned consistent and even.
As always Davidoff is always a smooth smoke. I love that Davidoff is coming out with more full bodied blends. And this one does not disappoint. It is a great combination of creamy smoothness with a hint of spice and sweet undertones. I noticed notes of espresso, nuts, and earth.
Only 5,000 boxes were made, and even worse than that only 3,000 are allotted for the US Market. So get yours before they are gone.
