When four of the world's foremost curators of fine dining lent their talent for taste discernment to Davidoff's team of cigar creators, unsurprisingly the result is something from the very top table of flavour. After months of co-creation with Davidoff's Team of Master Blenders, 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) have come to an outstanding synthesis of the culinary and premium cigar world: the Davidoff Chefs Edition 2021.
The chosen Churchill format (RG 48 x 7") for the Chef Edition 2021 cigar will take aficionados on 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 carefully balanced blend is crafted with four well-aged Dominican filler tobaccos held together by a Mexican binder and crowned by an Ecuadorian wrapper.
Wrapper: Hybrid 238 from Ecuador
Binder: Negro San Andreas Seco from Mexico
Filler: Piloto Seco, San Vicente Ligero, Piloto Visus and Hybrid 192 Seco from the Dominican Republic
The cigars are presented in a remarkable ceramic packaging of 10 cigars. The innovative and organic packaging serves a second purpose after the cigars have been stored safely in the humidor. Customers are invited to use the ceramic base as a cigar ashtray, while the wooden lid serves as a serving tray to place spirit glasses and cigar accessories on.
