Well-Aged Smoke

Davidoff is renowned for its adherence to perfection, which is personified in the limited-edition Reserva 12. Hand rolled in the Dominican Republic, this 5½-x-52 large robusto is blended with five different tobaccos, some of which have been aged as long as 12 years. The smooth and silky sun-grown Ecuadoran wrapper was especially cultivated for this cigar, and the large ring gauge provides a fuller smoke than the standard robusto. The perfectly constructed cigar, with a bouquet of sweet green tea, draws smoothly, and its full, rich flavor is herbal and spicy, due to the well-aged tobaccos and the proprietary wrapper leaf. As with all Davidoff cigars, the Reserva 12 burns evenly, right down to its distinctive white and gold double bands. (
