Davidoff/Zino BACK2BACK Limited Edition 2019

Brooklyn based urban artists Mike Baca (2ESAE) and Fernando Romero (SKI) are part of a collective known as UR NY. The duo began making custom artwork for Davidoff under the Zino Platinum portfolio. This is the 2019 version of their annual limited edition. It is a 7 x 52 torpedo that uses an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper over a Connecticut binder and fillers from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua. It retails for $15 and it is limited to 2,500 canisters of 12 cigars. Those canisters are designed to look like spray paint cans to reflect the artists’ main medium: graffiti. Most of these cigars sold at a release event at the Davidoff store in Brooklyn. This is the only cigar in your box you may be able to find at other online retailers but not for long. They made 30,000 of these total. We bought 10,000 of them…so…yea..they won’t be around for long! I was always shocked that Davidoff, an ultra traditional company, would collaborate with two graffiti artists from Brooklyn. But that’s a testament to the brand’s ability to surprise us every now and then. What a beautiful cigar. I wish you could see it in the canisters they come in. Either way it is very photogenic between the band, the shape and the color of the wrapper. Money cannot buy a much nicer Connecticut Shade wrapper and it’s a good representation of a good Connecticut shade wrapped cigar. Glamorous, luxurious and now cool. Let’s see if the Brooklyn artists chose the right blend.

Tasting Notes: Prelight, I get dried cedar with a tinge of honey on the body. The foot gives the same dried cedar with honey but add the typical Davidoff/Zino mustiness/earthiness. Thats the stuff! The cold draw has milk chocolate and breads with some woods and slight herbs. Once lit, I get honey and hay along with

almonds. Good, creamy smoke with light spice. The retrohale is fairly easy with some spice and smokiness. I get a wood note that reminds of a No. 2 pencil. There are also herbal notes at times. Very smooth. In the second third the cigar becomes even better. It gets much richer and sweeter. Rich tobacco, honey, cream, cedar, slight spice and vanilla. The final third becomes less creamy, more cinnamon-like, with slight grassy notes. It’s very smooth, sweet and with baker’s spices through out. This is a great morning stick or a great stick to have when you want something lighter than a Nicaraguan kick while still being well constructed and full of flavor. Pairing Notes: The entire time I’m writing the tasting notes, all I can think about is tapioca pudding with whipped cream and cinnamon- not far from a Mexican Horchata drink. Cinnamon anything 1-2 hours before the smoke. Milk chocolates with the cigar. A good brandy or cognac. A fine aged rum. Amber lager. White wine. Root beer. A good café latte with cinnamon or green tea with honey and cinnamon. Let’s give these guys a shout out on Instagram @back2backcigars and @zinoplatinumcigars.
