The Davidoff Selección 702 Limited Edition was the first cigar to wear the proprietary Davidoff 702 Habano wrapper from Ecuador. Launched in 2009, the cigar was an immediate success, becoming a sought-after collector’s item.
The unique 702 Habano wrapper is nutrient rich from volcanic ash and nurtured by the persistent blanket of cloud of the Cotopaxi region, providing an incredibly rich and intense wrapper with a wonderful, silky texture.
In the first third of the taste journey, peppery notes are present, along with complex and rich aromas of black coffee, roasted almonds and slight notes of cocoa. Aromas of bittersweet chocolate, leather wood and cream compliment the flavors.
In the second third, the cigar increases its intensity, and wood notes are more predominant, while the overall aroma becomes sweeter. Black coffee nuances are less bitter and gain sweetness, while peppery notes together with the spices determine the flavor.
In the final third, the cigar becomes much creamier, the peppery notes are now softened and the creamy dark coffee balances.
