Exploration, adventure and discovery
Inspired by Zino Davidoff’s pioneering spirit, Davidoff Cigars has made it a
mission to delight the cigar aficionado by bringing him a variety of taste
experiences and cigar pleasures.
Davidoff masterblenders, led by Hendrik "Henke" Kelner, went on an exploration
for a new type of blend that would stimulate both the bitter and sweet taste
buds. The team embarked on an adventure searching for tobacco across the
world's renowned tobacco regions that would enable the creation of such a cigar.
The relentless pursuit for the right blend paid off when they discovered that a
blend crafted with the finest leaves from plants grown in the fiery volcanic soil of
the Esteli, Condega, Jalapa and Ometepe regions of Nicaragua created just the
right balance of sweet and bitter notes to tantalize the palate.
It took time, patience and perseverance to create the perfect conditions in which
to craft these fine cigars. 10 years were needed for the preparation, curing and
ageing to tame the wilder tendencies of the Nicaraguan tobacco, and to deliver
an exceptional blend with all the intensity, excitement and refined
sophistication aficionados would expect from Davidoff. As with all Davidoff
Cigars, and to guarantee its quality and exceptional craftsmanship, the new
Nicaragua range is hand rolled in Davidoff's Dominican facilities by expert rollers.
aficionados who are in the mood to discover new and exciting
experiences to fill their time beautifully. These superb cigars
combine the signature Davidoff refinement with all the intriguing
intensity of Nicaraguan tobacco," notes Charles Awad, Senior
Vice President Global Marketing and Innovation at Oettinger
