Quick Smoke: Davidoff Special R Tubo

Once lit I was welcomed by a cool, smooth, well-balanced smoke. The classically-sized robusto (5 x 50) is medium- to full-flavored with toasty notes and a long buttery finish. Except for requiring one unexpected relighting, the construction was superb. It paired fantastically with Johnnie Walker Gold Label.

Verdict = Buy.
