Davidoff Adds Toro to Puro d'Oro Line

Davidoff's Puro d'Oro line has received a new size: the Eminentes. The 6 1/4 inch by 52 ring gauge Toro becomes the largest size in the series, and it's the first addition to the brand since it was released last year.

The Toro, which retails for $18.50 per cigar, comes in 4-packs or in boxes of 25. Each cigar is adorned with a gold foot band and a pigtail cap.

Puro d'Oro is a puro, made solely with Dominican tobacco and is distinguished by a dark, oily wrapper grown in the Yamasá area of the Dominican Republic. The cigars are darker and stronger than traditional Davidoffs.

Eminentes brings the Puro d'Oro line to five sizes. The Puro d'Oro line is made at the Davidoff factory in the Dominican Republic.

"18.50 a pop? are they as good as a Padron 1964? I hope so for the price.........Greg you should have a blog, like the rest of the guys. You write a lot of great articles. Thank you for that. One vote for Greg ! George Colby " —May 19, 2011 23:01 PM
