The Davidoff Yamasa!
What’s happening my cigar smoking family? Today was another great day in my neighborhood. So in order to celebrate I decided to smoke and review a top-shelf cigar. The newest cigar in the Davidoff family is called Yamasa. This cigar was the result of long experiment. The Yamasa region of the Dominican Republic was a swampy area said to be unfit for growing tobacco. In order to prove everyone wrong, Henke Kelner set out to propagate the beloved tobacco plant in this area. The process included two years of soil tending and seed selection. The PH of the soil was raised plant by plant giving each plant the exact amount of nutrients needed. Though the site covers 100 hectares, only 21 are used for the fine tobacco in the Yamasa.
The new line is offered in four sizes:
Robusto (5 x 50, $19.70)
Toro (6 x 52, $22.70)
Pirámides (6 1/8 x 52, $23)
Petit Churchill (4 x 48, $12.90)
The three larger sizes come in boxes of 12 while the Petit Churchill will be packaged in boxes of 14. In addition, all four sizes are offered in four-packs
Binder: San Vicente from Yamasá
Filler: Nicaraguan tobaccos from Condega and Estelí Dominican Piloto and Mejorado
Watch the video to see if I rate this cigar a win… or a fail. In the meantime, light up one of your top shelf cigar and enjoy the ride.
