Quai d’Orsay: New Look, Two New Vitolas, Exclusivo Francia 2016 Shipping

2017 promises to be a great year for Quai d’Orsay, the only brand of Cuban cigars created at the request of a country other than Cuba.

Quai d’Orsay Secreto Cubano

The brand finally launches its Edición Regional Francia 2016, the Quai d’Orsay Secreto Cubano, in a Petit Corona shape (110 mm X cepo 40). 10 000 boxes of 10 cigars (at a price of 7,90 € per cigar or 79 € per box of ten) will be released this spring only in France.

“This cigar offers more or less a thirty minutes smoke. I think this will all at once satisfy the connoisseurs of the Quai d’Orsay and those who do not know the brand yet, for they can discover it easily thanks to this small shape,” says Antoine Bathie, director of the cigar division for Seita, Imperial Tobacco’s French branch who imports Quai d’Orsay.

New Brand Design

The brand inaugurates a new ring design, with a golden ring in relief printing. The revamped cigar will be on the program of the Festival del Habano, where Quai d’Orsay will be honoured: “I am proud to lead a conference on the most French of Cuban brands, on March 1st”, reveals Antoine Bathie.

Two Quai d’Orsay Portfolio Additions

At the opening of the Festival del Habano, Habanos S.A. hast just announced the launching of two new vitolas in Quai d’Orsay’s portfolio:The Quai d’Orsay N°50, a 110 x 19,8 mm (4 3/8 x 50) sized cigar, and Quai d’Orsay N°54, a 135 x 21,4 mm | 5 1/8 x 54 (galera name: Edmundo Grueso). this is the very first time the Edmundo Grueso vitola goes into Habanos S.A.’s classic portfolio. It was formerly given to limited or regional editions.
The classic Quai d’Orsay line now officially includes three sizes: those two new vitolas and the Quai d’Orsay Corona Claro. The announcement was made by Antoine Bathie on Twitter:


A journalist since 1995, Guillaume Tesson wrote for various newspapers and magazines. From 2005 to 2013 he worked for the French cigar magazine L’Amateur de Cigare as a reporter, member of the tasting committee, and eventually as editor in chief for the iPad version. His passion for cigars led him to write two books, Cigares (Hachette Pratique) and Le Petit Larousse des Cigares (Larousse). Guillaume lives in Paris and, for Cigar Journal, has his finger on the pulse of everything that goes on in France that has to do with cigars.
