Cigar Coop Review: Davidoff Nicaragua Diadema Fina
Show Video: Episode 128
In 2014, the Davidoff Nicaragua Diadema Fina became the fourth regular production size and the fifth vitola made in the Davidoff Nicaragua line. For this first regular production line extension, Davidoff opted to produce a 6 1/2 x 50 perfecto called the Diadema Fina. This new size would become the longest offering in the line. The story of the Davidoff Nicaragua is long documented. This is the Nicaraguan puro blended by Henke Kelner offered in the Davidoff line.
I agree with Paul that the larger, tapered format works real well here. This delivers notes of cedar, natural tobacco, nut, black pepper, and a unique caramelized sweetness. I found the flavors to be in the medium to full-bodied range, countered by medium strength.
The ironic thing is that I think the opposite ends of the size spectrum work best here – namely the Short Corona and the large Diadema Fina. Can there be two belles of the ball? As for the Diadema Fina, this is box worthy in my book.
