Davidoff’s Winston Churchill The Late Hour line is supposed to be the stronger brother of the regular Winston Churchill line. The black bands also underline the fact that it is supposed to be a bolder cigar.
The tobaccos used for the blend come from a multitude of different countries. One particular leaf, a Viso from Condega, was aged for six months in ex Scotch barrels.
Visually, the Colorado Maduro shaded wrapper has a decent amount of tooth and oil to it. Some light veins are present. Construction, as you would expect from a Davidoff product, is flawless.

Davidoff Winston Churchill The Late Hour Churchill: the cold draw reveals pleasant notes of hazelnut, wood, pepper, and cocoa. Once lit, the cigar starts with wood and pepper notes.
Overall, the Davidoff Winston Churchill The Late Hour Churchill is an intriguing cigar. The profile is balanced and the flavors, although not many, are complex. Strangely enough, the evolution, especially from the second to the last third, decreases the more the strength increases towards the end.
