Decent smoke to try

I have continued on my quest to find a Connecticut shade that would just blow my socks off. Was it this Davidoff Anniversario that has been around since before I was born? Well no it wasn't, but is it a good cigar? YES! For a CT shade this would certainly be in the top 5 for me as it has some of the prototypical mild but pronounced wonderful flavors that Davidoff is known for. Its very aromatic which I love, but I couldn't help to make the comparison to other, more favorable wrapper types and blends that I quite frankly enjoy more, both under the Davidoff umbrella and others industry wide. Maybe my face just inst meant to take down these smooth light skinned dongers. Either way it was very enjoyable but for me the $20.00 spent for this cigar would be better allocated to a Yamasa, Nicaragua, or Grand Cru if we are talking Davidoff or some other really amazing industry bangers for far less.
