Dom Perignons Shine at Christie's Auction

David Savona
Posted: June 21, 2006
Several lots of Cuban cigars went on the block at Christie's in London on May 18. While the majority were recent-production Havanas that sold for fairly low prices -- in some cases, below market value charged for new cigars -- a few Cuban Davidoffs from the 1980s did quite well.

A box of 25 Davidoff Dom Perignon cigars topped the auction selling for £4,500 (about $8,400), considerably more than the pre sale estimate of £2,500 to £3,500. Made in the early 1980s, the Churchill-sized smokes (7 by 47) were among the older Davidoffs sold at the auction, and were the most expensive cigars sold that day.
