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.

Southern Draw Rose of Sharon

Last year released its first Connecticut cigar with the QuickDraw Connecticut, and since the release of that cigar, many have wondered if there would be a Connecticut addition to their core line of cigars. Finally, there is one, with the release of the Southern Draw Rose of Sharon. As with previous cigars in the core line, the company is keeping with its theme of flower plant name, while also drawing on the biblical expression that first appeared in the King James Bible in 1611...

Top Ten Cigars of 2016
Toasted Foot's Top Ten Cigars of 2016

I knew I should have brought a Xikar, so on my walk to the Sands Expo area I stopped by the Davidoff of Geneva kiosk and bought a...

IPCPR 2015 Coverage – Day 2

I don’t know how, but it seems even hotter and more humid today than it did yesterday. Everyone at the IPCPR seems tired and worn out, maybe it’s from the heat or maybe it’s being hungover, but people are moving around the Convention Center floor a little more slowly today. So, while I do have some great new stuff to talk about there wasn’t anything quite as...
