The quality and the first five minutes
The wrapper is a bit dark in this photo 😅 The color in nature is a nice dark brown.
The cover sheet of the Davidoff Millennium Toro presents itself oily and has some thick leaf veins, but they do not interfere with the taste or the glow. Visually, it is a real eye-catcher with a beautiful dark brown color. The cold draw surprises with a light pepper note and a hint of forest aromas.
An elegant cigar!
The lighting of the last copy took a little longer than usual, the other two I could light as usual. The cigars thrilled me with a perfect and even glow that lasted until the end - simply fantastic! The strength in this initial phase is medium strong, the taste pleasant and intense, especially if you use the ZiZo R+ technique.
The first half of the Davidoff Millennium Toro
The ash is stable and firm in the Davidoff Millennium Toro in the first half. From the second half, it breaks off a little faster.
In the first half of the Davidoff Millennium Toro, I experienced a pleasant and persistent aftertaste (aftertaste) that remains intense and positive on the tongue. The aroma (smoke smell) is rich and simply wonderful. There is a slight peppery taste on the tongue, but thanks to the ZiZo R+ technology as well as retronasal, all three were intense. I also taste bittersweet cocoa notes and a distinct presence of wood. A slight acidity rounds out the flavor very well. With the ZiZo R+ Technique, I experienced a fresh element that I cannot describe, but is definitely very interesting.
The second half and conclusion
A pleasure to the end.
The cigar evolves constantly, sometimes the wood is in the foreground, then again the cocoa and a little later the pepper emerges stronger. In the second half, it gains depth and the wood and cocoa flavors become even more intense. This makes enjoying the Davidoff Millennium Toro a fantastic experience.
The strength of the cigar increases over the course of smoking and reaches quite strong levels, I would rate it 4/5 on the strength scale. This cigar is definitely a must for cigar lovers.
A tip on the side: store the Davidoff Millennium Toro in the humidor with the cellophane for at least 7 days before smoking, in order to develop the full potential of this great cigar.
All in all, I can only recommend to buy the Davidoff Millennium Toro and be impressed by its quality and variety of flavors. Enjoy it in peace and let yourself be enchanted by its constant evolution in taste.
