Sir Winston Churchill was not a man to follow convention. When most people were thinking of their beds, he was thinking how best to run a country or to command an allied advance. His powers of creativity did not dim when the street lamps did. For Sir Winston was a man who found the night a source of inspiration and industry. The dark was where he found his spark. And now Davidoff is celebrating this legendary facet of his character with a special cigar.
The Winston Churchill The Late Hour is to be enjoyed when the end of the evening is just the start of something more, when thoughts and discussions weave interesting paths into the night. The cigar itself is worthy of being the subject of such conversations. It too has its own unique story. It is blended with tobacco aged in finest Scotch single malt whisky casks. This suffuses the cigar with a unique complexity, depth and the most heady of flavors, creating its own atmosphere, stimulating your palate and the conversation at the same time.
‘Everyone has his day and some days last longer than others’ as Sir Winston would say.And this exquisite cigar has not just its day but its night, too.
To reflect the darkness during which Sir Winston was at his most creative, Davidoff has selected a shiny and oily Habano Ecuador wrapper in a beautiful dark chocolate color.
The two Nicaraguan filler tobaccos are grown in the mineral rich volcanic soils of Condega and Estelì, adding spiciness and depth of character to the cigar. The Nicaraguan Condega Visus tobacco, aged in Scotch single malt whisky casks, gives a mysterious sweetness and depth of flavor.
Together with the two different Dominican Visus filler tobaccos and the dark Mexican binder, the complexity of this full bodied blend manifests itself in many beautiful, robust flavors. The aromas tantalize the palate with varying layers of black pepper, dark coffee,sweetness, old leather, wood and spiciness.
