Pinellas Park, FL, October 2018. On its quest for new cigar experiences, Davidoff, the renowned luxury premium cigar brand, announces the release of the Davidoff Cigar Dojo Exclusive.
The unique cigar blend is created in collaboration with Cigar Dojo, one of the most recognizable brands in the cigar media industry with a vibrant and loyal cigar community following.
The Davidoff Cigar Dojo Exclusive beautifully represents Davidoff’s expertise and quality supported by deep heritage and craftsmanship, with Cigar Dojo’s desire to create a blend that is truly unique and special to the cigar community. “Cigar Dojo has released some legendary collaborations, but we have never done a true celebratory cigar. And if we are going to do it, you know we are going to do it right – which is why we are proud to collaborate with Davidoff on this exclusive project. This is a superior blend that features deep, rich flavors that have the ability to transform any occasion into a celebration.” – Eric Guttormson, Owner of Cigar Dojo.
This special cigar is blended by Davidoff Master Blender Eladio Diaz exclusively for this project. The cigar features a beautifully rich Ecuadorian wrapper, a Dominican binder from the rich soil of the Yamasá region and filler tobacco from various regions of the Dominican Republic. The cigar is handcrafted in a majestic Toro 6×52 format, providing a creamy, nutty aroma at the start, building to sweet notes of caramel, corn and hazelnut, with hints of ginger spice. The Ecuadorian wrapper contributes to the extremely smooth and aromatic retro-hale, yet with favorable intensity of spice and strength creating a cigar with an exceptionally clean finish and palate-pleasing stimulations of sweetness, spiciness and bitterness. The combination of wrapper, filler and binder creates a complex transition in the second-third and final-third, creating a creamy aroma with sweet notes of chocolate and salted caramel, and an intensified retro-hale with heightened spice and wood notes.
Wrapper: Habano Ecuador
Binder: Yamasá – Dominican Republic
Filler: Dominican Republic
