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.
