Episode 391 Davidoff Colorado Claro Aniversario No. 3

Play

BACKGROUND: Described by Davidoff as being Cubanesque in flavor, the Colorado Claro lends itself to a more intense flavor profile. The cigar is made at the Davidoff factory in the Dominican Republic and the tobaccos can come from up to four different harvest years.

Davidoff Colorado Claro

The Colorado Claro series of cigars has been produced in very small quantities for cigar enthusiasts and aficionados who seek an exceptional taste experience, but shipments to retailers have been, and continue to be, sparse.

The distinguishing feature of this cigar is the dark and seductive, reddish brown Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper with a much stronger flavor profile. The sun-grown wrapper is rare and only a select few of these leaves meet the standard for this particular cigar.

Davidoff Colorado Claro

The Davidoff Colorado Claro series expanded recently with the addition of a new size in the line. That new size will be the featured cigar of this week. And it is, the highly regarded, 6-inch by 50 ring gauge Aniversario No. 3.

Our featured coffee is a Coromandel, which is a coffee from the savana-like area called the Cerrado. Coromandel lies at an altitude of 1000 meters or about 3,300 feet. The farm on which these beans are grown is strictly a family operation: José Silvone is the father, working with his two sons Reginaldo and Cristiano.
