After being unable to smoke for a week due to being sick I wanted to smoke something that would not have a lot of smoke so I opted to go with a Lancero. It is very rare that I will review a cigar based on one stick, and it would never happen after being sick when the taste buds might be a little off center. So I scoured through my notes at home and I found I has smoked 2 of these cigars and it was ready for a review. So I took this cigar to my favorite smoking spot and finished off the following review.
Cigar: Davidoff Millennium
Size: 7.25 x 40 (Lancero)
Wrapper: Ecuadorian Hybrid
Binder: Dominican Seco
Filler: Dominican Ligero & Seco
Appearance and Construction (18/20): This lancero from Davidoff is a stunning looking stick that has a nice oily sheen on its rich looking wrapper that has the appearance of cocoa. The well rolled stick sports a small pigtailed triple cap and a nice amount of tooth. The foot appears to be a little loose but the rest of the cigar is firm with no soft spots. The classy looking Davidoff band even sports the size on the side and the secondary band let’s you know it is the Millennium Blend
Flavor & Notes (26/30): The Millennium is stronger then your typical cigar and you notice that even in this size. The first third of the stick the primary notes were roasted nuts with a hint of cedar and spice. As we moved on to the second third the cigar began to remind me more of nutmeg and was joined by cedar and earth. The last third of the smoke the earth took control of the stick but notes of nuts, cedar and spice finished out this enjoyable smoke.
Burn/Ash/Draw (24/25): The burn like the majority of Davidoff smokes was amazing but like most lancero smokes the ash was very weak. The salt and pepper ash failed to hold on for any length. The draw on the lancero started off a tad loose but it smoked at a nice slow pace to match my relaxed state.
Overall (21/25): The strong roasted nuts that was the key note to this cigar remains with me hours later and I find it enjoyable. I’ll keep a few in my humidor whenever I can get my hands on a few but won’t go out of my way to get them.
