Davidoff 702 Series Anniversario No. 3
Cigar Review: Davidoff 702 Series Anniversario No. 3


Rarely does a specific tobacco attain a celebrity status of its own, but Davidoff’s proprietary Ecuadorian 702 wrapper is one such type of tobacco. The 702 wrapper has been a part of some amazing cigars, making its appearance with the Davidoff LE 2009 Seleccion 702, and then being included on legendary cigars like the Avo LE 2012 La Trompeta and Davidoff LE 2013 Year of the Snake. Davidoff has taken this impressive tobacco and used it in place of the Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper on seven of their core blends.

What’s In Your Humidor: Paul Maldonado of Maldonado Dynasty Cigars

What’s in your humidor? At the moment, I only have The Mogul in the humidor I’m afraid.  Guilty!  I happen to be in “perfectionist-mode”and I end up testing The Mogul in different vitolas to get a sense of change in flavor profile. My favorite in my brand would be The Mogul because it happens to be our only line thus far.  I must say, however, that...
