August 14th, 2020 Lightation Ceremony – Davidoff Escurio

To wrap up Davidoff Week I’ve selected the Davidoff Escurio as a perfect way to kick of the weekend for the International Cigar Lightation Ceremony. This beautiful cigar is made an oily dark Ecuadorian Habano Wrapper and uses Brazilian and Dominican tobaccos in the binder and filler.

This exceptionally entertaining cigar is a journey into new stimulations and sensations. Each Escurio cigar mixes the Cubra leaves – the fire of the Cuban Criollo refined – and the dark Brazilian Mata Fina leaf pulsating at the heart of this original blend of tobaccos. Dominican filler tobaccos and a Habano Seed Ecuadorian wrapper add a beautiful balance to this unique cigar. From the beginning, the blend intrigues when spice meets sweet as chilli pepper plays with softer, creamy notes. This is soon complemented in the second third by flavors of oak, liquorice, fruit, salt and leather. Lastly coffee and chilli chocolate flavors arrive culminating in a finale of charming complexity. The cigar is constantly changing in flavors and triggers a new taste experience with twists and turns.
