Davidoff Creates New Dominican Puro
Posted: April 16, 2010
The Davidoff Puro d'Oro, originally intended to be on sale a year ago, is finally ready. The Dominican puros will be launched on April 27 at Davidoff of Geneva's flagship store in the United States, located on Madison Avenue in New York.
The Puro d'Oro has a wrapper grown by Davidoff maker Hendrik (Henke) Kelner in Yamasá, an area of the Dominican Republic north of the capital city of Santo Domingo and far from Santiago and its surrounding tobacco fields.
The presentation is striking and unusual. The word Davidoff does not appear on the cigar, which is devoid of a traditional cigar band. Instead, the cigars have narrow golden footbands with beading on the edge, bearing the name of the cigar size in subtle, embossed relief type. Each cigar has a tight pigtail cap.
Davidoff's Puro d'Oro will come in four sizes, all of them relatively small, traditional sizes. The Magnifico is a robusto size, Notable is a corona gorda, Deliciosos is a corona and the Sublime is a short panetela.
