David Winston Churchill - The Late Hour
Out of all the tycoons who smoked cigars, none were more influential than Winston Churchill. His love of Romeo y Julieta Cubans was so renowned that Davidoff decided to honor him with this premium release. Despite having a Habano Ecuadorian Oscuro wrapper, the Dominican Visus filler has a noticeably Scottish touch.

The complex mixture of coffee, black pepper and sweet flavors make this cigar an adventure to smoke. Salute the British Bulldog with this undeniably solid release!

Equipped with a sun-grown wrapper, double binder, and Cuban seed filler, this box-pressed Nicaraguan puro showcases what Garcia learned in Cuba. Its sweet hints of cedar, earth and cocoa are tantalizing enough to reconnect any smoker with nature!
