Davidoff Cigars is set to release another complex multi-origin blend within its Winston Churchill cigar range. The beautiful Robusto cigar with tobaccos from Nicaragua, Mexico and the Dominican Republic will be available for a limited time only – The Traveller.
“After the successful launch of the Winston Churchill “The Original Collection” in 2014, and the great success of the more intense “The Late Hour” line, with the industry’s first, unique scotch cask-aged blend, our Master Blenders have taken on the challenge to create another complex multi-origin blend inspired by Winston Churchill’s rich character.” says Sybille Johner, Head of Brand Marketing at Oettinger Davidoff AG. “Sir Winston was an explorer, a Traveller, all the time widening his horizons, exploring new places and trying new things. We wanted this limited edition to celebrate this facet of his character and our Master Blenders have done an amazing job at crafting a beautiful, extremely balanced Robusto cigar that will take aficionados on an exciting sensory journey”.
The limited edition cigars The Traveller cigar is crafted in a beautiful Robusto 50 x 5 format, providing multi-layered notes of wood and earth at the start, soon followed by sweet and spicy flavours. In the second-third, palate pleasing stimulations of sweet creaminess develop, with elegant notes of coffee, leather and hints of cinnamon spice, along with notes of pepper and nuts in the retro-hale. The cigar ends with intensified complex aromas of wood and leather, complemented by salted caramel notes. A delightful taste experience inspired by Winston Churchill’s rich character and the key places that marked the man’s life.
Limited to 8,000 boxes worldwide, the Robusto cigars come in beautiful boxes inspired by leather travel cases, and include a Boveda humidification device that turns them into travel humidors that will allow aficionados to embark their favourite cigars on their next journey. The icon applied to the cigar boxes reflects some of the key places that marked Sir Winston Churchill’s path: cities like London and Washington that built the Commander and the Statesman and places that inspired his art like Marrakesh.
