Davidoff Millennium Blend Robusto


Many cigar companies created cigars for the Millennium, virtually all of them limited-production runs that are long gone. Davidoff's is an exception. To follow up its one-shot series of Millennium perfectos, Davidoff created the Millennium Blend Series, four cigars powered by hybrid wrappers grown exclusively for Davidoff in the foothills of the South American Andes. Blend master Hendrik Kelner tinkered with the 5 by 50 robusto, giving it a blend unique to the line, and it is the best of the brand. The cigars are rich, strong and wonderfully complex. Like all Davidoffs they are expensive, but they are arguably the best non-Cuban Davidoffs ever made.
