Once you set your eyes upon this beautiful stick, you will likely take note of the immaculate craftsmanship and polished exterior from the oils of the Ecuadorian sun-grown wrapper. This wrapper incases the finest blends of Piloto, Olor, and San Vincente tobaccos. These filler tobaccos have been elected as the preferred crops from top harvesting areas in order to create a smooth, and refined smoke, making it one with immense flavor. In addition, the russet colored Ecuadorian wrapper adds a touch of spice that is highlighted by the large format of the Davidoff Toro Especial Sel 702 cigar is making cigar smoking history with its creamy smooth smoke and nutty flavor.
Before setting fire to this beauty, the draw emits a sweet and nutty fragrance that teases the nostrils, only to be solidified upon first light. Almost immediately after the first light, copious amounts of a creamy-smooth smoke coat the palate, and fill the air. Notes of roasted coffee and nuts create a polite partnership during the first two thirds of the cigar. Once the final third arrives, a touch of chocolate emerges, along with a strong shot of espresso at the conclusion. Perhaps the most notable flavor, however, is the consistency of creamy leather that appears throughout the duration of the entire smoke.

Recipients from friends and family, to business clients would all be great potential prospects, as these rods are definitely made for the worthy.
