The Davidoff Art Edition 2014 is visually stunning with a perfecto foot and covered in a mocha brown wrapper that is silky smooth to the touch. There are very few veins noticeable and it feels great when squeezed. Aroma coming off of the wrapper is a combination of strong sweet tobacco, dark chocolate and cedar, along with a tiny amount of pepper while the cold draw brings sweet cedar, hay and leather.
The nipple foot on the Davidoff Art Edition 2014 lights easily and I instantly taste overt flavors of sweet cedar, tobacco, leather, hay, nuts and cinnamon. The profile is both creamy and rich all at once with a oily mouthfeel that is quite nice. There is a slight nutmeg sweetness that gains prominence as the first third continues, as well as a slight white pepper on the retrohale, both combining well with the aforementioned flavors. Both the burn and draw are excellent with the draw being the standout, exhibiting just the right amount of resistance. The strength is a non-factor so far, ending the first third well below the medium mark, and not seeming to go anywhere very fast.
