Davidoff Aniversario No. 1

Davidoff Aniversario No. 1 Cigar Review

Originally crafted to celebrate Zino Davidoff’s 80th birthday, the Davidoff Aniversario No. 1 embodies the Davidoff tradition of unique conception, and blending as remarkable as the occasion itself. The Davidoff Aniversario No. 1 has been reintroduced for a limited time, allowing both seasoned aficionados and new enthusiasts to savor its rare qualities once again. Measuring at 8.66″ x 48 Davidoff fans are in for a long but remarkable experience. 

The Davidoff Aniversario No. 1 Limited Edition 2023 is a visually stunning cigar. The very light golden Connecticut wrapper is complemented by some pronounced veins, giving it a rustic yet refined appearance. The construction is firm and even, showcasing the meticulous craftsmanship that Davidoff is known for. The cigat is well-rolled and finished to perfection.

Upon lighting, the first third greets you with a variety of flavors. Notes of toasted wheat and cashew are immediately noticeable, providing a nutty, creamy base. There’s a slight honey sweetness that adds a delightful layer of complexity. On the retrohale, faint cedar and a hint of white pepper add a subtle spice, enhancing the overall profile without overpowering it.

As you transition into the second third, the flavor profile evolves beautifully. Light roasted coffee and caramel emerge, bringing a richer, more decadent character to the smoke. Cream and vanilla notes add a smooth, luxurious texture. The cedar becomes more pronounced on the retrohale, blending harmoniously with the developing sweetness and creaminess.

The final third intensifies in flavor and strength. Espresso notes take center stage, accompanied by a resurgence of white pepper that provides a satisfying kick. Charred oak adds a robust, smoky depth, rounding out the experience. The strength builds noticeably, bringing the cigar to a satisfying and flavorful conclusion.

The Davidoff Aniversario No. 1 Limited Edition 2023 is a time commitment, but it’s time well spent. Despite its milder profile, this cigar offers remarkable complexity and transitions through a captivating range of flavors. The burn is flawless and the draw is perfect, exemplifying the high standards of Davidoff’s craftsmanship.
