A new range of Davidoff Winston Churchill cigars is due to go on sale early next year, according to a press note issued through PR Newswire.
In creating the new range, Davidoff said, the aim had been to craft exceptional cigars ‘as uniquely diverse as the man who inspired them’.
‘The Davidoff Masterblenders have embraced and accomplished an exciting challenge: blending cigars of a complex character with a rich mixture of fine qualities drawing on and harmonising the tobaccos of Nicaragua, Mexico, Ecuador and the Dominican Republic,’ the note said.
‘The Great Man’s persona, the trait of character, was the inspiration for the chosen formats.’
“We feel sure that Sir Winston would have enjoyed sharing one of these exceptional cigars which surely do justice to one of the most celebrated cigar lovers in history: the aristocrat, the artist, the commander, the raconteur, the statesman, the traveler – these are cigars of character,” said Hans-Kristian Hoejsgaard, CEO of Oettinger Davidoff.
Meanwhile, Randolph Churchill, Sir Winston’s great-grandson said a great cigar was Churchill’s favourite travelling companion and, whether he was being statesman, commander, or dinner party guest, he was rarely without one.
“As a descendent of American pioneers, through his mother Jennie Jerome of New York, and of aristocratic British military figures – the Dukes of Marlborough – through his father, he knew the significance of history and the value of time. And he always had time for a cigar.”
The Davidoff Winston Churchill cigar range comprises a Petit Corona (41 ring gauge x 4 ½ inches); a Robusto (52 RG x 5 1/4); a Churchill (47 RG x 6 7/8), and a Toro (54 RG x 6).
Each is available in wooden boxes of 20 that have been crafted in an elegant white design showcasing the silhouette of Sir Winston Churchill.
The cigars will be available at selected Appointed Merchants in the US, starting in February, and at Depositaires/Davidoff Flagship Stores worldwide from March.
