Davidoff Royal Salomones 2016
Starts with white pepper on the front of the tongue. First third introduces a creamy brown sugar note and toasted wood. The brown sugar is in the middle of the tongue and toasted wood notes are on the top of the pallet. Great construction and great draw.
Second third introduces it's self with the change in the spice note which I would call similar to allspice. The toasted wood continues as the top of pallet flavor. The construction and draw are still great and the burn is perfect.
Last third, more of the toasted wood and spice along with a hit of chocolate. The flavor adds hints of toasted hazelnuts and transitioned to more of the burn sugar. The smoke remains creamy with the sugar notes.
It finished with the largest pepper bomb that I have experienced. Think about the way that a fireworks display finishes. Same idea! All other flavors vanish when the final pepper hits.
Flavor: Medium with complex flavors. Transitioned through the burn and provided great flavors.
Construction: Perfect! Draw was consistent. I needed to cut it a little more at first to improve the draw. I cut only the cap and it was not enough. Expect a slow and consistent burn. Two hour and 30 minute burn time.
Strength is all in the last third expect it to be strong.
It is clearly and event cigar and will be enjoyed again. Very enjoyable!
