After I unboxed the September Platinum Box from Luxury Cigar Club, I asked viewers which cigar they'd like to see me review. Overwhelmingly, they voted for today's cigar, the Davidoff Millennium Robusto. And, after reviewing the Davidoff Yamasa (another dark and bold cigar from the brand), I'm optimistic about this one.
Starting in on the Millennium, I gave it a quick cut with my guillotine and immediately noticed how clean the cut was. It was like this cigar was made for guillotines. Anyway, the draw was incredible from the get-go, and I could taste spice, cedar, and, perhaps, cinnamon before lighting the end.
Once I lit the cigar, I tasted lots of bold spiciness, the smoke was thick and luxurious, and the draw was phenomenal.

In the final third of the Davidoff Millennium, the spice and the nicotine ramped up, and the tip of my tongue started to tingle. Additionally, the flavors became a little harsher than they were in the first two-thirds of the cigar. It seems that some of the skill that went into the first part of the cigar was left behind in the last part.
Because this cigar didn't quite follow through on the expectations it set in the first half of the cigar, and because of the extremely high price point, the Davidoff Millenium earns a CigarScore 4.
