Basel/Switzerland, October 2021 – To celebrate the Chinese New Year and reward collectors of fine and rare cigars, Davidoff takes inspiration from the Chinese zodiac and presents an exclusive collection of Limited Edition products saluting aficionados born in the year of the Tiger. For the tenth consecutive edition, the leading global brand of handmade luxury cigars has chosen a Connecticut wrapper leaf, which is a first for any Davidoff Limited Edition. To add yet more excitement the wrapper leaves were colored with a natural process to bring the fur markings of the tiger to life on the cigar.

Thanks to their sharpened senses and their awareness of their surroundings, people born in the year of the Tiger are always ready to seize an opportunity. They will choose a direction, make a decision and will not backtrack or regret. They are born leaders and this Davidoff Limited Edition cigar reflects the Tiger perfectly.

Our design teams and Master Blenders have poured all their expertise and craftsmanship into the creation of these spectacular executions.” says Edward Simon, Chief Marketing Officer of Oettinger Davidoff AG. “From masterfully creating a blend with a Connecticut wrapper as a first for a Davidoff Limited Edition cigar to designing a spectacular box inspired by the natural habitat of the tiger. On to accessories crafted by hand of utmost quality and exclusivity, the «Year of the Tiger» products are worthy of Zino Davidoff’s pioneering spirit and are sure to fill the time beautifully of aficionados around the world.”
The «Year of the Tiger» cigar
A beautiful Connecticut wrapper was chosen for this «Year of the Tiger» blend for the first time for any Davidoff Limited Edition. This wrapper leaf was then treated naturally to bring to life the fur markings of the Tiger on the finished cigar visually. Presented in a 5×52 Piramides format this cigar is blended with three proprietary Davidoff hybrid tobaccos culminating in a new taste sensation. With its golden brown hue, this beautiful cigar experience is starting with energetic notes of pepper and cedar wood. A complimentary creaminess introduces notes of cacao leather and roasted nuts. Culminating in a surprising addition of honey the delightful journey is
truly worthy of the Tiger.
Limited to 17,350 pieces worldwide, the Davidoff «Year of the Tiger» Limited Edition is presented in a spectacular box of ten cigars. Taking inspiration from the Tiger’s natural habitat; the jungle. It comes with a transparent lid and carefully cut out trees creating depth and excitement while revealing the cigars.
