Davidoff Year of the Rat

Davidoff Year of the Rat: the cold draw presents hints of wood and nuts. The opening confirms a pronounced note of walnut and hazelnut, with toasted hints. There is a barely perceptible veiled spiciness in the background.

Davidoff Year of the Rat

In the first third, the cigar releases notes of nuts (now the walnut stands out), seasoned wood and a mineral nuance in the background. Spices, mainly black pepper, are perceived in the background. Strength is medium – full (4/5) and the smoke is creamy.

In the central section, the nutty notes are still well present, the walnut remains the protagonist, but now joined by earth and nuances of wood resin. Strength remains constant (4/5).

In the last third, the cigar continues on the notes of wood and wood resin. Slowly a major note of cocoa appears as well. Strength remains constant (4/5).

Overall, the Davidoff Year of the Rat releases a smoke with an flavor profile that shows a good evolution, especially between the first and the second third. It is structured and complex. Particularly rewarding. That said, the previous cigars belonging to this line (Davidoff Year of the Pig and Year of the Sheep), scored higher.
