Davidoff Cigars is releasing the third iteration of their chef collaboration cigar, Davidoff Chefs Edition 2021. This year’s collaboration is with four world renowned chefs: Norbert Niederkofler* (co-owner Food Space & Restaurant AlpiNN, Italy), Juan Amador (Amador Restaurant, Vienna), Masa Takayama (Masa, New York City) and Jorge Vallejo (Quintonil, Mexico City).
We are proud of our partnership with acclaimed three Michelin starred chefs from Europe and the US as well as one of the brightest lights in Latin American cuisine. The third installment of our Davidoff Chefs Edition unites the staggering expertise of nine Michelin Stars and expresses the common values that the masters of both crafts share. These common values include a focus on sustainable sourcing and the respect for only the finest ingredients. The conscious way they are grown and sourced, as well as the innovative methods they are married together, imagining new flavour combinations leading to new taste experiences. But most important, the Davidoff Chefs Edition 2021 meets the demand of our collective passion perfectly: the love for the finest cigars and culinary experiences.
Edward Simon, CMO of Oettinger Davidoff.
Davidoff’s Master Blenders and the Master Chefs chose a Churchill (7 x 48) format for the Davidoff Chefs Edition 2021. It is described as “a taste journey that starts with a rich creaminess supported by notes of pepper and cedar wood. During the second third, gentle floral notes start to develop while hints of cinnamon and coffee are weaved into the progressing sensory experience. During the last third of the elegant Churchill format, the flavour profile changes into a pleasing caramel taste combined with cacao and the reoccurrence of cedar notes from the beginning.”
The blend for the Davidoff Chefs Edition 2021 uses and Ecuadorian Hybrid 238 wrapper, Mexican Negro San Andreas Seco binder, and four different fillers Piloto Seco, San Vicente Ligero, Piloto Visus and Hybrid 192 Seco from Dominican Republic. The cigars come in ceramic packages containing 10 cigars which can be used as an ashtray, and the wooden lid is to be used as a serving tray to place glasses.
9,700 boxes of the Davidoff Chefs Edition 2021 were produced, and will be sold worldwide starting September 16th.
