The White Band is

Davidoff ashtray Concrete

The four lines are called White Band Collection. It is a timeless icon of sophistication and elegance. The difference with other cigars is, among other things, the strict quality control.

A cigar test is subjective. The taste of a cigar is influenced by personal taste preferences, taste memories, the shape of the day, what you have eaten or drunk before. Even the lighting mood in the room influences the taste experience. The taste nuances described here therefore do not have to correspond to one's own impressions.
