Winston Churchill Marrakesh single cigar falls into the line that was commissioned by Winston Churchill’s Great-Grandson and blended by master blender Hendrick Kelner. Holding true to Churchill’s enjoyment of cigars, a very slight musky taste is noticeable throughout the duration of the cigar. With a complex blend of various special tobaccos, this cigar is medium in body, but full of flavor. This cigar is very different from Davidoff’s traditional lines, but equally enjoyable.
Connoisseur’s rating: 93/100
“At the age of 21, Winston Churchill, visiting the Caribbean to observe the Cuban Revolutionary War against Spain, took the decision to give up the cigarette in favour of the cigar. For my grandfather, his beloved cigars became a passion. Although of an uncompromising nature, addressing himself to each task in his very own way, he knew how to enjoy life. A close friend once remarked: ‘Mr. Churchill is easily satisfied with the best’. Inspired by his philosophy of life, I hit on the idea of creating an exceptional cigar – one worthy of bearing the name of, perhaps, the most famous cigar smoker of all time.” – Winston S. Churchill (Grandson of Sir Winston Churchill)
