Davidoff Cigars introduces Year of the Rabbit

The Davidoff Year of the Rabbit Limited Edition 2023 collection is Davidoff’s biggest selection of products around a Chinese zodiac to date. The collection consists of a limited-edition perfecto cigar composed of seven different tobaccos. Alongside the cigar, Davidoff introduces a pipe and a special pipe tobacco blend, an ashtray, a cutter, and an additional, very limited gran toro cigar exclusively available in Davidoff of Geneva since 1911 flagship stores: The Davidoff Year of the Rabbit Flagship Exclusive. 

Year of the Rabbit, a zodiac characterised by calmness and depth. People born in the Year of the Rabbit may seem quiet at first, but will slowly reveal their complexity of character and quick intelligence. The Rabbit is an enchanting companion with a lively mind and the sharpest of senses when it comes to the more sophisticated things in life. 

The Davidoff Year of the Rabbit Limited Edition 2023 reflects these character traits in the minutest details. Those born in the Year of the Rabbit, are characterised by calmness and depth. People born in the Year of the Rabbit may seem quiet at first, but will slowly reveal their complexity of character and quick intelligence. The Rabbit is an enchanting companion with a lively mind and the sharpest of senses when it comes to the more sophisticated things in life. 

„I am immensely proud of our Master Blenders in the Dominican Republic for developing not one, but two exclusive cigars for this special zodiac,” said Edward Simon, CMO at Oettinger Davidoff Group. “Their creative groundwork gave our skilled design team just the right impulses to build an impressive range of accessories around the tobacco products. I trust that this year’s selection will once again inspire our aficionados around the world to fill their time beautifully.”

Davidoff Year of the Rabbit
Davidoff chose a perfecto shape for the representation of this zodiac, as the format is reminiscent of a rabbit’s ears, and the multi-layered blend reveals its depth slowly due to the cigar’s tapered head and foot. The cigars feature seven different tobaccos, amongst which are filler tobaccos with an average maturity of four and a half years, come together and invite aficionados to discover the cigar’s complexity layer per layer. 

The ten perfecto cigars come in a smart-looking red box inspired by the Rabbit’s character, with the lid displaying the Year of the Rabbit icon, and the Year of the Rabbit pattern, which imitates a rabbit’s gentle and steady hops. Interlinked sections on the inside of the wooden box are reminiscent of a rabbit warren and offer space for the cigars. 

Davidoff Year of the Rabbit Flagship Exclusive
The Davidoff Year of the Rabbit Flagship Exclusive, limited to 600 boxes and consisting of 24 Gran Toro-sized cigars, marks the brand’s first special „Year of“ edition exclusively available in Davidoff of Geneva since 1911 flagship stores. The impressive box in the Year of the Rabbit design is otherwise only to be found in the Masterpiece humidor. The blend composition is similar to that of the Year of the Rabbit Limited Edition 2023 perfecto cigar; however, the format creates a slightly different revealing of taste and flavours. 

Accessories
To enhance the Limited Edition and to offer givers as well as collectors a bigger selection of products to choose from, Davidoff has released several limited accessories in the Year of the Rabbit design. 

The Year of the Rabbit Ashtray, crafted from premium porcelain in France, comes in a smart shape with two notches and offers a generous space for two cigars and ash. The Year of the Rabbit Cutter, made in Germany and limited to 370 pieces, ensures a precise cut due to its razor-sharp double blades.

Pipe and pipe tobacco
Pipe aficionados are also catered for, with Davidoff also releasing an elegant pipe, limited to 170 pieces. For the first time, the pipe also comes with a pouch in the Year of the Rabbit design. Each of the pieces is handmade and numbered in Italy. The Year of the Rabbit Pipe Tobacco, limited to 4,500 tins, delights with typically Asian notes and features Virginia tobaccos from India and China, and Burley tobacco from Malawi in the blend which create flavours of jasmine, lemon and vanilla. 

From 17th November 2022, the Davidoff Year of the Rabbit Limited Edition cigars, pipe tobacco and accessories will be available at select Davidoff appointed merchants and flagship stores around the world.
