Davidoff Has New Size and New Look For Puro d’Oro
G. Clay Whittaker
Posted: May 16, 2012
Davidoff plans to release a sixth size in its Davidoff Puro d’Oro line next month called the Gigantes, and the new, fat size will debut a new band.
The two-year-old brand will now have a bold and gold band reading "Davidoff" in embossed lettering. When Davidoff first released the line in April 2010, the cigars notably did not display the Davidoff name and were marked only with narrow, golden foot bands bearing the name of the particular size of each cigar.
The relatively small sizes of the Puro d’Oro line include a Robusto, a Corona Gorda, a Short Panetela and a Corona. Last May, Davidoff released a fifth size: a 6 1/4-inch by 52-ring Toro, which at the time was the largest size in the line. Unlike the original four sizes released in the Puro d’Oro line, the Gigantes (a 5 1/2-inch by 56-ring robusto) is matching current market trends that lean toward larger ring gauges.
Davidoff Puro d’Oro is an all-Dominican-leaf line that is stronger than the average Davidoff cigar. The cigar’s special wrapper leaf is grown in the Yamasá region of the Dominican Republic.
Gigantes will hit shelves in June.
