Now this is cool!
To accompany the Winston Churchill “The Late Hour” cigar, Davidoff has created a special cigar liquor glass … with notches to hold a Cigar.
It is mouth-blown by a European glassware expert with 120 years of experience in this craft. Available in sets of two glasses
Brilliant design … excellent innovation from Davidoff.
I’m ready to put in my order!
Now let’s talk about the Cigar.
Winston Churchill “The Late Hour”.
Sir Winston Churchill was not a man to follow convention.
When most people were thinking of their beds,
Sir Winston found inspiration and creativity in the long dark hours of the night.
The dark was where he found his spark.
Davidoff celebrates this facet of the Great Man with a special cigar – The Late Hour.
Davidoff “Winston Churchill”
“The Late Hour”
“Contains tobacco aged for six months in finest Scotch single malt whisky casks, a feat no one has attempted before.
The tobacco absorbs the aromas of the cask and whisky,
which suffuses the cigar with a unique complexity, depth and the headiest of flavours, creating a unique stimulation of the palate”
The cask aged Nicaraguan Condega Visus tobacco,
together with the two different Dominican Visus filler tobaccos
and the dark Mexican binder unravels the complexity of this full-bodied blend.
Beautiful, robust flavours of black pepper, dark coffee, sweetness, old leather, wood and spiciness tantalize the palate.
To reflect the darkness during which Sir Winston was his most creative,
Davidoff has selected a shiny and oily Habano Ecuador wrapper
in a beautiful dark chocolate colour.
Winston Churchill “The Late Hour” Cigar
I recently smoked the Robusto & the Churchill vitolas of “The Late Hour”
… and I have to tell you, both are amazing cigars.
But there’s just something about a Churchill.
“The Late Hour” had an unusual complexity that absolutely captured me.
What I really liked about it was that the blend was all about tobacco and I believe the whisky cask influence is what made it magical.
The cigar was so approachable … I wanted to lock out the rest of the world, just to spend some quality time with it.
For sure, the Churchill abounds with deep aromas & flavours of coffee, dark cocoa, and leather. But I also got hints of cedar & and lovely caramel aromas in the air.
The draw … hey, it’s a Davidoff, and one of their trademarks is stellar construction.
No exception here, the draw was perfect from start to finish.
Seriously, “The Late Hour” is a cigar that makes a person feel like a statesman.
As soon as I finished “The Late Hour” … I wanted to light up another one.
It’s that good.
I’ll be posting full reviews with scores on all 3 vitolas of the Winston Churchill “The Late Hour” in the weeks to come.
… while waiting for the whisky glasses to be released!
