They are only 10 and 7 -- perhaps much will change in time.

I love Davidoffs, admittedly as an employee, I am a bit biased. Like any cigar, it may or may not be your thing. I can tell you a bit about what we have to offer, though.

The thousands and classic series are the lightest bodies smoke in the white label line. The thousands, especially, are very creamy and flavorful, but again, very light. The kind of strength that a regular smoker would have when they do not want something that strong, like on an empty stomach. Nonetheless, very flavorful. The next step up is the Gran Cru, which are on the medium to light side of medium. Again, flavorful. A step above them in strength are the davidoff maduro. These are similar the gran Cru, although a bit more full bodied. The Special series are going to be solidly medium. Cream, occasionally a bit of spice. The Colorado Claro wrappers in the special series are a bit more spicy. Great smokes. The millennium series are medium-full. They use an ecuadorean grown proprietary Cuban seed wrapper, and have a hint of strength often associated with Cuba. Again, very good and flavorful smoke. The strongest are the Puro D'oro. Very full bodied, especially in the larger sizes. These are made with Dominican wrapper, binder, and filler, and are very full bodied. Creamy, quite a few subtleties in the blend. One of my favorites. The Anniversario Series is kind of separate. Creamy, and VERY flavorful, the 1 and 2 are mild to medium smokes with a very enjoyable creamy draw and flavor. It is the kind of smoke you want to take an hour or two and smoke while savoring it. The 3 is medium plus. Has a bit more spice, and is one of our most requested at events. Your taste is your taste. If you really enjoy spicy cigars, I would recommend you look to Don or Jaime Garcia's work. But as for quality of construction and quality of control, I can tell you we are second to none. Every Davidoff product ships with a unique identifier, allowing us to determine every aspect of it--the farm of tobacco origin, the blender, the roller, etc, which aid in allowing us to maintain high standards.

my wife doesn't like the aroma, but she is complicit in my smoking - buys me smokes and accessories. that's a fair compromise to me.

I had the Cohiba on Sunday. I never smoked these much, even when I regularly smoked cigars. It really was quite good. And it smelled fantastic unsmoked, too - the wrapper is very high quality leaf.

This made me crack open my humidors and I found a nice stash of cuaba torpedoes along with a bunch of other Cuban sticks (including my favorite HdM Epicure No. 2s). Some are more than a dozen years old. the problem is that I maintained the humidors only sporadically, so they have dried out over the years. Any good advice on revival? For now, the cigars are wrapped in a small trashbag inside the humidor while the humidor is rehumidifying. The plan is to go as slow as possible an see what happens.

Interesting about the Davidoff lines. I've got to say, I have never had a non-Cuban Davi...but the older Cuban Davidoffs, if they were stored well (key, obviously), are extremely good cigars.

Dopey regarding your old cigars---I believe the consensus knowledge is that yes, while you can bring cigars back slowly from bone-dry conditions, they will have lost some percentage of their oils/flavor/taste. Doesn't mean toss them, but just good to know going in. Don't bring the humidity up too quickly, either--you want it to be a very slow transition. Weeks and months, not days. Your plan for as 'slow as possible' sounds good to me. Cigars are, at the end of the day, a lot hardier than we sometimes give them credit for.

Got a freshie box of Upmann Sir Winstons in today, March '12 box. Beautiful wrappers. I haven't had any Sir Wins since 2008 production.

Big herf on sunday I need to get my palate ready.

I have the exact same humidor. It's a nice piece. Keeps a decent humidity level.
