Davidoff Dominicana - that's the name of the new cigar. It will be launched on 20.05.2021. The date may vary depending on the country. The tobacco comes from the 2014 harvest and was carefully matured for 6 years until the Dominicana was created. The cigar line is made with these rare vintage tobaccos and offers a firework of flavors and enjoyment.
About the new cigar
The leading manufacturer of premium cigars launches a new line of cigars and celebrates its Dominican heritage with a cigar that reflects Dominican joie de vivre and culture.
"Davidoff is associated worldwide with cigars of exceptional quality and sophistication. To honor our roots, we have created the Dominicana: a line of cigars that exudes the colorful and diverse culture and lifestyle of the Dominican Republic. To accomplish this task, Davidoff's master blenders have combined five Dominican Republic tobaccos in an Ecuadorian binder and topped it off with a Dominican wrapper.
We are delighted to have succeeded in developing a cigar that combines intense and complex flavors with the elegant class of the Davidoff White Band Collection, bringing the Caribbean joie de vivre to life through its taste," says Edward Simon, Head of Marketing at Oettinger Davidoff AG. "The Davidoff Dominicana is not only a vibrant and exciting example of Davidoff's expertise and craftsmanship, but also a testament to our vast range of vintage tobaccos.
We have allowed selected tobaccos from the 2014 harvest to mature to perfection for six long years and used them for the Davidoff Dominicana blend to give a confident testimony to our vintage creations. This is one of the key differences that aficionados around the world appreciate about our brand and our company," he continues.
Exceptional taste experience
The Davidoff Dominicana complements the White Band Collection with a familiar cultivated, but at the same time stronger taste experience. As a sign of the exceptional craftsmanship of the Davidoff Torcedores, the Dominicana bears a pigtail cap and a golden foot band, which emphasizes the year in which the tobacco was harvested.
To create a vibrant taste experience reminiscent of the colorful culture and joie de vivre of the Dominican Republic, Davidoff's master blenders opened the deepest treasure troves of their vintage tobaccos to create an incomparable cigar statement. The complex blend of tobaccos matured for up to six years offers a multi-layered yet harmonious taste experience. In the first third, the Yamasá Visus tobacco offers appealing notes of fresh spices - complemented by aromas of black pepper and oak wood.
In the second third, the Ecuadorian binder adds an intense creamy note, which is supported by subtle hints of dark chocolate and leather. The final third begins with the taste of dried fruit, which mixes with delicate aromas of oak and fresh spices. The extended maturation process of the tobaccos harvested in 2014 results in a full-bodied intensity, balanced complexity and a taste experience that makes the Dominicana unforgettable.
True to the promise of uncompromising quality and integrity, the Davidoff Dominicana line will be available as long as the stock of vintage tobaccos for this blend lasts. To ensure the Dominicana's impeccable quality and optimal flavor development upon market launch, the cigars were hand-rolled over twelve months ago.
This extended resting phase of the cigars ensures that the time of those aficionados who choose a Davidoff Dominicana is filled in the most beautiful way. The cigar will be available in three formats for every moment of enjoyment: a Toro, a Robusto and a Short Robusto. The cigars are presented in natural wood boxes of ten each, decorated with the vintage symbol*, which indicates the particularly long maturation of the tobaccos.
*The equipment with the vintage sticker may vary depending on the country.
