2023 marks the 10th Anniversary of one of Davidoff’s most successful brands, the Davidoff Nicaragua. To celebrate the milestone, the company is releasing a limited edition cigar, the Davidoff Nicaragua 10th Anniversary . This brand new blend adds rum cask aged tobacco for added depth. The wrapper, binder and filler tobaccos in the blend have a combined age of 45 years. The cigar comes in one size, a gran toro. A limited and numbered cutter is also being released alongside this.
The Davidoff Nicaragua was the first cigar in the company’s Black Band Collection, which now also includes the Escurio and Yamasa.
Coming from sophisticated and milder Dominican blends with our White Band Collection, we wanted to please those looking for a more intense palate stimulation. We thus ventured out into the world to diversify our portfolio with tobaccos which grew under different circumstances. We found what we were looking for in Nicaragua’s volcanic soil – a fiery intensity which our Master Blenders tamed and blended to Davidoff sophistication with an exciting bittersweet taste profile. Thus, Davidoff Nicaragua was born. For our Nicaragua 10th Anniversary Limited Edition, our experts took on a new challenge to create yet more depth for our loyal aficionados. Our labour- intensive cask fermentation and the remarkable age of the tobaccos have led to a full-bodied and refined cigar experience second to none.

The new limited-edition gran toro builds on the existing Nicaragua blend with a special emphasis on the aging of the tobaccos. The wrapper, binder and filler tobaccos combined have an age of 45 years. Another special feature of the gran toro is the Estelí seco filler tobacco, which was aged in rum casks for a full 6 months – a first for Davidoff.
Each box contains 12 gran toro cigars packed in a wooden box which displays the carefully varnished Nicaragua pattern. The frame reflects the color of the Nicaragua line around the box, and a 10th anniversary sticker on the lid highlights the special edition.
In addition to the new cigar, Davidoff is releasing a high-end double blade cutter, an ideal complement to the gran toro cigar. It is made in Germany of brushed stainless steel in matt black with silver blades and displays the typical Davidoff Nicaragua pattern. Elegant engravings such as the Davidoff logo on the blades and the serial number make every cutter a statement piece and collector’s item.
The new cigar and cutter will be available July 6th 2023 at select Davidoff Appointed Merchants, premium cigar retailers and in Davidoff flagship stores.
