The Dictador Experience Launches in Germany at CigarWorld Düsseldorf

Produced in Colombia since 1913, Dictador Rum recently added a premium cigar line to help create the Dictador Experience and will be officially launching the cigars on the German market on the 10th of March at CigarWorld in Düsseldorf.

Dictador’s three cigar lines include the Pavo Real, The J. Nelson 1974, and XO 1913. The J. Nelson 1974 combines Dominican filler, trace elements of Colombian viso leaf and a Mexican San Andres wrapper to suit Dictador’s 12 and 20 year old rums, while the XO 1913 has been blended to pair with Dictador’s Perpetual XO and Insolent XO premium rums.

This launch follows Don Stefano’s appointment as Dictador Cigars’ “master” European Distributor in October 2015 and the success of the line – the Pavo Real half corona and the J. Nelson robusto are both close to being sold out since launching in Germany in November 2015.

Complementing two Dictador cigars on offer on the night, guests will also be able to indulge in the Dictordor, 12, 20, XO Insolent and XO perpetual rums. The Dictador Experience combines the flavours and aromas of Colombia and the Caribbean to delight the senses.

“After appointing Don Stefano as our German Distributors following InterTabac in Dortmund last September, we have seen steady and solid growth in the European market place,” said Jason Nelson, Dictador’s Global General Manager – Cigars. “We are excited to be launching now with Marc Benden and his team at Cigar World, as this gives us the ability to service a wider range of clients that are seeking the unique experience that Dictador offers.”
