Tigers are born leaders. This Limited Edition cigar reflects the Tiger perfectly. With flavours as bold as the Tiger’s personality and its stripes, they too are leaders when it comes to quality and craft. The Tiger’s keen perception will naturally sense this immediately. And, as if looking in the mirror, recognize the majesty of a great cigar.
For the first time in Davidoff’s history, we are using a Connecticut wrapper on one of our Limited Editions. Through a natural treatment of the wrapper leaf before rolling, the fur markings of the tiger visually come alive on the cigar.
SUPERIOR TOBACCO BLEND IN CONNECTICUT WRAPPER
The sophisticated Year of the Tiger cigar blend is composed of three proprietary hybrid tobaccos from the Dominican Republic culminating in a new taste sensation. The cigar presents distinctive notes of cream, roasted nuts and honey.
The limited edition cigar is presented in a 52 x 5½” piramides format with an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper leaf.
For the first time in Davidoff’s history, Master Blenders have chosen a Connecticut wrapper for a limited edition. Through a natural treatment of the bright wrapper leaf with dark wetted tobacco veins placed crosswise on the leaf before rolling, the fur markings of the tiger come alive visually on the cigar. This process alone takes several days and requires great attention to detail.
AN ENERGETIC COMBINATION OF FLAVOURS
The complex flavours of the Davidoff Year of the Tiger pair exceptionally well with a cocktail on a rum base.
The main aromas of the cigar are cream, roasted nuts and honey. They mingle just perfectly with the drink. The overall dynamics of the piramides and the cocktail make them ideal companions.
PACKAGING – A SPECTACULAR BOX OF TEN CIGARS WITH A TRANSPARENT GLASS LID
The mighty Davidoff Year of the Tiger Limited Edition is presented adequately in a spectacular box of ten cigars with a transparent glass lid. Tree-shaped wood cuttings are visible underneath the glass panel, depicting the tiger’s natural habitat: the jungle.
The golden tiger, dynamic, determined and ready to seize any opportunity, is discernable in the front, lurking behind a tree stalking its prey.
All boxes come with a red envelope, which can be used to hand out “lucky money”, a Chinese tradition on special occasions such as New Year’s. The red colour represents good luck and best wishes for the year ahead.
