Davidoff’s Most Expensive Cigar and Where to Find It

CJ tests the most expensive cigar that Davidoff has ever launched – and shares tips on where to find it.

One year ago, Davidoff launched the limited-edition Oro Blanco, the most expensive cigar in the firm’s history. The cigar measures 152 x 21,4 mm | 6 x 54 and costs 420 Euro or $500, 450 pounds, and 500 Swiss francs each.

Oro Blanco is not only costly, it’s also extremely rare. To help you find this special cigar, we’ve put together a list of retailers and their contact information (see info box below). Interested passionados can also add themselves to an online waiting list and will be contacted by a select retailer as soon as the cigar is available.

Last spring, the CJ tasting panel came together for a special tasting of this exclusive cigar. We came to the following conclusions. The gorgeous dark wrapper is firmly and faultlessly rolled. The cigar’s drawing resistance is flawless, and it burns slowly, with a razor-sharp burn ring; none of our testers needed to re-light at any point. The Oro Blanco produced a generous volume of cool smoke, leaving behind a great-looking firm, white ash. Its blend is complex, multifaceted and harmonious, revealing sweet cedar aromas and a touch of delicate acidity, as well as a nutty taste with salt-and-pepper notes and the brisk sweetness of citrus fruit. Some of us detected herbal aromas and pleasant bitter nut tones as well as aromas of toasted dark rye bread, leather and earth. All in all: an exceptionally aromatic, flavor-rich cigar, medium- to full-bodied.

Although we didn’t taste the cigar blind, some of us rated it anyway (94-97 points). We were unanimous that the Oro Blanco is a remarkable cigar.

The Davidoff Oro Blanco was blended by Eladio Diaz using tobaccos from the 2002 harvest. After 12 years of aging, Davidoff began to process the leaves, storing the rolled cigars for another 18 months. Packaged in cellophane, the cigar is available either in individual boxes or in boxes of ten.
