This is my daily smoke. When I first tried it I wasn't quite sure about it but over time it really grew on me. Virgina's out in front, cigar leaf coming in close second.

Gentleman, you can stop searching for underrated blends right here. The cigar aficionado and Va/Per connoisseur path cross at Habana Daydream. Primarily it's the Va/Per that leads, but the flavor profile modulates, sometimes influenced by the Cavendi... Read Moresh towards a rich creamy smooth Va/Per, but frequently driven by the cigar leaf towards deeper savory notes of wood and espresso... topped with a subtle smokey Latakia for a sweet but robust and subtly complex smoke. The Latakia seems farther in the background in some tins and perhaps there is too much perique in others. I'm not sure how big that "spoonful" of cigar leaf is, but the cigar is upfront and "at attention". Seems like there's a good helping. No tongue bite, no matter how hardily puffed. If you enjoy a little cigar leaf this flavorful smoke will really hit the spot and leave you extremely satisfied. --- Four Stars! Good job, C&D Read Less
Strong tastes melded together well enough that reminds me of a meaty stew( it does not taste like that, rather Feels so). Smokey, Earthy with deep tones is all I can say with words. Really enjoyable though.

I wasn't sure about this upon first smoke. A few days later it is my secondary in regular rotation. Very good smoke, good nic hit, burns well and leaves no mess. The cigar leaf is tasty if you smoke slow and cool. Enjoy.
This is a good, but not great, blend. It doesn't have any "wow factor" for me. Much in the way that I've never found a cigar as pleasing as a pipe, this is less pleasing than other C&D cigar leaf blends. I pickup more than a "sp... Read Moreoonful" of cigar leaf.

I'd rather stay with Plantation Evening... Read Less
It is well balanced, has good flavor and body. Virginias and perique are well pronounced, but the latakia and the cigar leaves stay very much in the background. For those looking for a cigar taste, they will hardly find it, but it is good.
It's a quality blend, and it's lame of me to throw in a nod to another in a review of this one, but it seems like it went for Fox's "Banker's" and failed. If I'm looking for a superb Cuban/VA, I pass on this one. The advantage is the cost. ... Read MoreThis is 4 dollars cheaper a tin than Banker's.

Now that my expectations are reset, I'll give this another try. Maybe then I'll understand the rave reviews. UPDATE 2021: I just don't like Latakia in my cigar blends, I guess.

Sometimes I find myself caught between smoking a fine cigar or a good bowl of tobacco in a favorite pipe. Habana Daydream is mysolution. Delicious cigar leaf generously blended into a traditional English satisfies ny tastes buds to a tee!

You can taste and smell the other tobaccos including the cigar leaf (maybe not as strong but still there). It is as smooth and creamy as a well made cigar. Habana Daydream reminds me of an old drugstore tobacco from 40 years ago called Marrakesh. Anyone remember that one? Yes. Habana Daydream is very enjoyable. Read Less
This is a nice cool and dry smoke. Light in Latakia, Perique fades in and out, and the cigar leaf builds to the end. A must try for a cigar smoker or someone looking to make the jump to Latakia without being overpowered.
I thought I'd limit my smoking to once or twice a week. But this blend won't let me.
