Davidoff

I'm headed to the tinder box this afternoon to buy a few sticks. I have been interested in trying a davidoff for some time now. Which one is the best for those of you that have tried them? Any other suggestions for a great cigar while I'm there? probably in the the $8-10 range?

The only Davidoff I ever smoked was a "Double R" I think it was. Not too bad of a smoke. Just wasn't worth the price. As for a cheaper cigar, I'm quite fond of the Partagas Spanish Rosado at the moment, but I'm just a novice so my experience is limited.

I smoke a lot of davidoff. I like the millenium or the special R. But honeslty dont waste your money and buy a cusano hermanos vintage. I can hardly tell the diffence and they are made from the same tobacco, by the same rollers, at the same factory. Only 1/2 the price.

Mac, I remember you saying that same thing a while ago but I've yet to try a comparison. Which Davi is the Hermanos Vintage similar to?

Hmm, I never smoked a Davidoff cigar. When I used to smoke cigarrettes, I smoked some of Davidoff's cigarrettes, which were excellent IMO. I need to try one of their cigars.

I agree, I used to sneak a few of my dad's Davidoff and Dunhill cigarettes before I quit and they put anything coming out of Big Tobacco to shame.

Agree with Axe and the others, Daividoff cigarettes were very tastey. I have had a special R or so, never had the millenium, but I agree with Mac, I have yet to take his comparison test, but there are plenty of cigars out there that are just as good if not better for half the price! I love the Fuente Opus X series, as well as the Anejo's, but I know at least 4 or 5 different smokes that are half the price and just as yummy, but I still keep my Opus habit...Can't let old habits die I guess!! Punch Rare Corojo is a must try in your price range as well. I think it's a phenomenal smoke for the price IMHO.

Enjoy!
Paul

Axe, for me the real comparison is between the Special R and the Hermanos vintage. Like I said in that thread, you can tell the difference between the two but the aromas from each woudl be pleasing the same smoker. IE I liked the hermanos vintage just as much as the special R although I could still tell the two appart by their subtle nuances.

I would urge you to try the Excalibur 1066 or the Excalibur Royal Sterling Fortis 7 1/2 x 54 or any Padron

I will agree with Deacon. I just bought another box of the Royal Sterling. One of my everyday smokes. I will have to say out of all the regulars here, we all have VERY different palates. Hopefully someday mine can be as good as CC's lady!!

Deacon, most of us agree with you on the Cohiba, but most can't afford it. Firemen Make $shit for wages.... Oh, wait, no we don't...hehehe. I just can't justify a 25.00 smoke everyday.

Heck man i don't smoke 25.00 cigars except on week-ends and speical occasions....you should try the Cohiba Red Dots or the Excalibur Royal Sterling or the Excalibur 1066 and if you have never tried the ABAM line of cigars, I highy reccomend them to the seasoned smoker. They average out at about 103.00 a box. I will also trade some cuban for some Premium D.R. cigars. for anyone that is trying to start their collection. I do not mind sharring with those who are new in the hobby
