I'm not much of a Davidoff fan. I tried a few; always felt like they were reasonably well-made but just didn't have that "magic" that kept me hooked that many much cheaper cigars have. The Chefs' Edition is the exception here. The creation of this cigar is quite interesting. Davidoff apparently worked with some Michelin star chefs to make the cigar taste a certain way. This Chefs' Edition has very interesting notes; I taste some baking spices, some tea, with only the mildest undercurrent of the expected Davidoff cream taste, but with an uncharacteristic medium-full body. And as to be expected of Davidoff, construction was very good; not quite top-notch, but very close. This is the first time I've had a Davidoff and didn't think it was money I would have much rather have spent on something else; however it is worth noting that I would not buy this cigar again because frankly, it doesn't fit my preferences. Now this is more up my alley flavor-wise. This is a Black Label Viaticum robusto. Not the cheapest cigar I bought (costs $15 per here in CA), but considering my regularly smokes cost roughly the same I don't consider this exceptionally expensive. This cigar reminds me a lot of the Caldwell Anastasia (it's in-between the OG green band and the remake blue band, but closer to the remake). First 2/3rds of the cigar has this chocolate note with good conplexity and this kind of strange (but not off-putting) savoury note that is not unlike good pork broth. Not a flavor I would expect out of any cigar. Last third was still very good, losing the chocolate note but gaining some spice notes. This cigar was good to the last little bit until I had to put it down to stop burning my fingers. Out of the two, the Viaticum is definitely worth a shot if you see it. I'd hesitate to recommend the Davidoff unless you already are a fan of their stuff.
