Who is the Davidoff Black Band Limited Edition 2022 aimed at?

With its Black Band Collection, Davidoff is targeting aficionados who are looking for new taste experiences. The elements of nature, which have a lasting influence on the climate, the soil and therefore the tobacco plants, can be clearly tasted in the cigars with the black ring. 

"With their exceptional tobaccos originating in Brazil, Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic, the Escurio, Nicaragua and Yamasá lines offer adventurous taste experiences. It fills me with pride that we have now been able to combine the best of these three individually compelling blends in our new Davidoff Black Band Limited Edition. We have created a new, exciting cigar with a lot of variety for those who are looking to discover exactly that in their cigar enjoyment," says Edward Simon, CMO of Oettinger Davidoff AG.

The special features of the Davidoff Black Band Limited Edition 2022

Davidoff has come up with something very special. The three lines of Davidoff Escurio + Davidoff Nicaragua + Davidoff Yamasá make up the Davidoff Black Band Limited Edition 2022 - united in one cigar.

Davidoff Black Band Limited Edition 2022
The Davidoff Black Band Limited Edition 2022 is a combination of the Escurio, Yamasá and Nicaragua lines.

As a reminder, these are the three individual lines with their blends:

  • Davidoff Escurio: The rains of the Brazilian Bahia region provide the salty-sweet and spicy taste of Davidoff Escurio.
  • Davidoff Nicaragua: The volcanic soils in Nicaragua produce the fiery, bittersweet intensity of Davidoff Nicaragua.
  • Davidoff Yamasá: The iron-rich red earth soil in the Dominican Yamasá Valley influences the earthy, rich complexity in the Davidoff Yamasá Blend.

What is the format of this Limited Edition 2022?

Gran Toro / Ring 58 /

Where water, fire and earth meet, the Davidoff Limited Edition 2022 Gran Toro cigar has its origins. The Davidoff master blenders were inspired by the country-specific tobacco varieties of the popular Black Band Collection and combined them to create a new blend.

The result is a diverse Gran Toro cigar that combines the sweetness of the Davidoff Escurio, the intensity of the Davidoff Nicaragua and the complexity of the Davidoff Yamasá. For adventurous aficionados, the new Limited Edition is an Eldorado of taste sensations and aromas that is second to none.  

What about the taste experience?

The generous 58 ring gauge of the Gran Toro cigar allows for a larger quantity of Black Band Collection tobaccos from Nicaragua, the Dominican Republic and Brazil in the filler. The correspondingly reduced influence of the Ecuadorian wrapper leaf results in a balanced, intense blend.

The cigar develops intense leather notes right at the start, which are joined by earth and pepper. These soon give way to strong aromas of coffee, nuts and wood and transition to cedar, dark chocolate and leather towards the end of the Gran Toro. The effortless complexity and consistency of the cigar impress right to the end. The Davidoff Limited Edition 2022 creates an unprecedented taste experience of 60 to 70 minutes of beautifully filled time.

The Sliding Ashtray

In addition to the Limited Edition, Davidoff also presents a modern Sliding Ashtray in two color variations that matches all Black Band cigars. The high-quality material is so robust that it can withstand wind and weather and is suitable for outdoor use as well as for indoor use thanks to its high-quality aesthetics.

The shape of the lid is reminiscent of mountain peaks and provides storage space for a cigar. A sliding mechanism opens and closes the spacious ash compartment, which also remains securely closed thanks to built-in magnets. Each ashtray also comes with a separate, eye-catching cigar stand, which provides additional storage space.
