Davidoff Cigars has announced a new limited edition cigar for 2022 bearing a black band. The Limited Edition 2022 is a combination of the tobaccos from the company’s three core black-banded lines, dubbed the Black Band Collection which includes Escurio, Nicaragua and Yamasá.
The company describes the blend as follows: “The rains of Brazil’s Bahia region induce the salty, sweet and spicy taste of Davidoff Escurio. The volcanic soils of Nicaragua nurture the fiery bittersweet intensity in Davidoff Nicaragua. All the while, the iron-rich red soils of the Dominican Yamasá valley grow the earthy deep complexity of the Davidoff Yamasá blend.”
The blend is described as combining the sweetness of Davidoff Escurio, the intensity of Davidoff Nicaragua and the complexity of Davidoff Yamasá. The Davidoff Limited Edition 2022 comes in just one size, a 6 x 58 Gran Toro. The large size allowed the blender to include all the different necessary tobaccos from the various blends
“Our Black Band Collection lines depict the elements earth, water and fire. With their exceptional tobaccos originating in Brazil, Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic, our Escurio, Nicaragua and Yamasá lines have always been an adventure in taste. I am proud that with our new Davidoff Black Band Limited Edition, we combine the best of these three strong blends and create an exciting cigar for those seeking to discover new experiences and a fair bit of alternation in their cigar enjoyment”Edward Simon, CMO at Oettinger Davidoff AG.
The filler includes tobacco from Nicaragua, the Dominican Republic and Brazil in the filler. The wrapper comes from Ecuador and the binder from Dominican Republic. The company says the cigar should last for 60 to 70 minutes. The Davidoff Limited Edition 2022 comes in boxes of 12. The box itself is black a blended trio logo. The colours and the leaf shapes nod to the origins of the blend and thus highlight the best of the pre-existing Black Band Collection lines Escurio, Nicaragua and Yamasá. Production is limited to 13,500 boxes worldwide. The cigar goes on sale May 5th to select Davidoff Appointed Merchants, premium cigar retailers and in Davidoff flagship stores.
