Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Jun 01, 2005 | Score: 89

Dry and woody, with notes of coffee bean. This cigar appears to have a darker and different wrapper than the one used on previous versions of this smoke—it’s less Colorado and more oscuro. Medium bodied.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Dec 01, 2001 | Score: 92

This chocolate-colored cigar is nearly flawless in appearance. The smoke is complex and intriguing, with leather, cedar and espresso notes. Medium to full bodied.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Aug 01, 2001 | Score: 94

This cigar has good color and texture. The smoke is tremendously rich, with black cherry notes and an earthy complexity. The finish is warm and toasty.

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.
