To celebrate the Chinese New Year, Davidoff takes inspiration from the Chinese zodiac and presents a collection of Limited Edition products. For the tenth consecutive edition, Davidoff has chosen a Connecticut wrapper leaf, which is a first for any Davidoff Limited Edition. The wrapper leaves were coloured with a natural process to bring the fur markings of the tiger to life on the cigar.
“We are overly pleased and proud of this tenth edition of this range of Davidoff products celebrating the Chinese New Year. Our design teams and Master Blenders have poured all their expertise and craftsmanship into the creation of these spectacular executions.” says Edward Simon, Chief Marketing Officer of Oettinger Davidoff AG. “From masterfully creating a blend with a Connecticut wrapper as a first for a Davidoff Limited Edition cigar to designing a spectacular box inspired by the natural habitat of the tiger. On to accessories crafted by hand of utmost quality and exclusivity, the «Year of the Tiger» products are worthy of Zino Davidoff’s pioneering spirit and are sure to fill the time beautifully of aficionados around the world.”
