Short, Fat Davidoff Puro d'Oro Coming Soon
Posted: February 11, 2013
Fans of Davidoff's Puro d'Oro brand can expect to see the cigar in a short, thick format called the Gordito next month.
At 3 3/4 inches long by 58 ring, Davidoff claims that the compact cigar will ensure at least 30 minutes of smoking.
The Puro d'Oro brand is made solely from Dominican tobacco and features a dark, oily wrapper cultivated on a small farm in an area known as Yamasá, north of Santo Domingo. When the brand debuted, it was billed by Davidoff as the most full-bodied cigar that the company makes.
The stout, pigtailed Gordito comes in handy four-packs and retails for $14.00 each or $56.00 per pack. It's the eighth cigar in the line and sports a gold foot band, as well as the gilded Davidoff signature ring. When Puro d'Oros were first released in the spring of 2010, they only came dressed with a foot band. Last year, Davidoff introduced its first fully gilded, embossed "Davidoff" signature band with the release of the Puro d'Oro Gigantes size. The large Gigante was the first in the Puro d'Oro line to wear both the foot band and the signature golden band. Now, the entire Puro d'Oro line wears the gold "Davidoff" ring and is the only brand in the company's portfolio to don these shimmering gilded bands.
All the cigars are produced in the Dominican Republic at the Cigars Davidoff factory, run by Hendrik "Henke" Kelner.
