Davidoff Special 53 Capa Dominicana Limited Edition 2020: it reveals notes of barnyard and a light spiciness in the cold draw. Once lit, the cigar starts out very light (due to the shape), with nuances of wood and spices.
Overall, the Davidoff Special 53 Limited Edition 2020 is a very convincing product. There is nothing negative to say about how the cigar performs mechanically. Pair this with a balanced and complex smoke (except in the last third, where it unravels a bit) and you have a cigar that you can enjoy every time of the day.
