The Davidoff Nicaragua cigars will be shipping to stores in the USA this summer and the rest of the world in fall.
Notice the new three triangles logo. This represents the mountains and volcanoes of Nicaragua. Richard Krutick, head of marketing at Davidoff, says the triangles also symbolize a three-part theme: “explore, adventure and discover.”
From the Davidoff brochure:
Inspired by Zino Davidoff’s pioneering spirit, we have made it our mission to delight the aficionado by bringing him the widest variety of taste experiences and cigar pleasures. Our experts, led by master blender Henke Kelner, constantly explore every opportunity to create new and diverse ways of ensuring time spent with each Davidoff cigar is time beautifully filled. On this occasion, our tobacco masters were looking for a new type of blend that would stimulate both the bitter and sweet taste buds.
This challenge took Henke and his team on a search for tobaccos that would enable us to create a unique cigar. They embarked on an adventure through the world’s renowned tobacco regions. They were looking and searching for only the highest quality filler tobaccos and wrappers, right for creating this unique experience. And, like everything else we do at Davidoff, this took time, dedication and perseverance.
This relentless pursuit of perfection paid off when Henke discovered that a blend of the finest leaves, selected from plants grown in the volcanic soil of Esteli, Condega, Jalapa and Ometepe regions of Nicaragua, created just the right balance of bitter sweet notes to tantalize the palate. Davidoff’s unique expertise would turn these leaves into the new Davidoff Nicaragua.
And, it took patience and perseverance over many years to create the perfect conditions in which to produce these fine cigars; 10 years, in fact. 10 years of preparation, curing and ageing. It gave us time to ‘tame’ the wilder tendencies of the Nicaraguan tobaccos, to deliver a blend with all the intensity, excitement and refined sophistication you would expect from Davidoff. A Puro Nicaragua, that you will discover, combines our signature Davidoff refinement with all the intriguing intensity of Nicaraguan tobacco. To discover them yourself will not take you on such an exotic journey, but the taste undoubtedly will.

AROMA AND TASTE
These cigars deliver a rich earthy aroma combined with a spicy, peppery taste.
Our Nicaragua Toro begins with white, peppery notes, joined by typical Nicaraguan stimulation at the back of the palate. You will note the presence of spicy aromas with wooden and earthy flavors.
The cigar starts changing, growing milder, alongside the appearance of an enjoyable sweetness. The aroma becomes milder, and flavors of roasted coffee beans and dark, bitter chocolate make themselves known. The cigar develops a creaminess at the end of the second third.
The cigar keeps building on the second third, delivering growing excitement and balance, thus becoming the kind of smoking experience that only Davidoff can create. Time filled beautifully.
The new Davidoff Nicaragua line is available in three sizes:
Toro (5 ½ inches by 54 ring),
Robusto (5 by 50) and,
Short Corona (3 ¾ by 46)
