Cigar Review: Davidoff Winston Churchill The Late Hour Toro

Initial Thoughts:

Winston Churchill is one of the most iconic names in the cigar world, and he didn't even make cigars. His name and profile are practically synonymous with cigars, and today I'm enjoying a cigar that bears his name. The Davidoff Winston Churchill Late Hour Toro is a beautiful cigar with just a couple of visual flaws. The veiny wrapper is almost a milk chocolate color marbled with areas of darker brown.

After lighting it, the burn was even and the punch gave a very smooth draw. The Winston Churchill Late Hour Toro is my first ever Davidoff cigar, so my expectations are high. Let's see if the cigar lives up to its reputation.

Final Thoughts:

The flavors of the Davidoff Winston Churchill Late Hour were good. However, there were undertones of a somewhat bland flavor that wasn't all that delicious. There were some good and some bad flavors, and, for a $20 cigar, I want all of the flavors to just be wonderful.

Regarding the burn of the cigar, the first half was pretty good, but the second half had major issues due to a vein that wasn't properly dried out.

Because this didn't quite feel like a $20 cigar due to some flavor and burn issues, the Davidoff Winston Churchill Late Hour Toro earns a CigarScore of 3.
