The Davidoff Aniversario Special "R" is a cigar that I tried at the Slow Tasting. Here is my report and the Slow Tasting video. Have fun with it!
The Difference - What is the difference?
Do you know the difference? Four cigar lines from Davidoff are presented under The Difference.
The White Band is
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. In other words: When the white band closes around a cigar, it is the final act of a ritual of Caribbean passion and Swiss precision.
Cigars.Zone would like to help you understand this difference.

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.
