Davidoff Cigars is kicking off the new year with a new multi-origin blend that will expand its Winston Churchill cigar line. This new blend, called The Traveller, is a limited edition with only 8,000 boxes being released worldwide. The cigars come in boxes inspired by leather travel cases and include a Boveda humidification device that turns each box into a travel humidor. The Traveler features tobaccos from Nicaragua, Mexico and the Dominican Republic and comes in a Robusto format.
“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, Oettinger Davidoff AG’s Head of Brand Marketing. “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.”
There will also be limited edition packs of five Corona sizes of The Traveler, available exclusively at select Duty Free locations outside of the U.S. Even though the Coronas will have the same strength and flavor as the regular Robusto size, these will have slightly more intense aromas due to the smaller ring gauge.
The Traveller details:
Wrapper: Dominican Republic
Binder: Negro San Andrés from Mexico
Filler: Piloto Mejorado Visus, Criollo Seco and San Vicente Mejorado Visus from the Dominican Republic, Estelí Visus and Semilla A Visus from Nicaragua
Format: Robusto (5 x 50), Corona [Duty Free Exclusive, available outside the U.S.] (5 x 43)
In addition to the cigars, Davidoff is also releasing two humidors, an ashtray, a cutter and cigar case that all celebrate Sir Winston Churchill’s passion for traveling. The humidors will be available in two popular sizes–Ambassador for 70-80 cigars and Primos for a maximum capacity of 35 cigars. These humidors will be made out of reconstituted wood that is broken down and then reassembled to reveal new textures and colors for a unique look. Both will have the new Winston Churchill silhouette that highlights the places he used to travel to. The limited and numbered ashtrays will also bring Sir Winston Churchill front and center in its design and will serve as an eye-catching centerpiece that can also hold two cigars.
The double-blade cigar cutter is made from stainless steel and can evenly cut cigars with ring gauges ranging from 22 to 58. These are made in Germany and feature the Sir Winston Churchill silhouette, as well as passport stamps featuring Churchill’s destinations of choice. Stamps and souvenirs from different locations are subtlety laser engraved on the XL-2 cigar leather case.
The Davidoff Winston Churchill The Traveller limited edition cigars and accessories will be available at select Davidoff Appointed Merchants and Flagship stores beginning in January 2019.
