Debonaire Launches Connecticut Cigar Called Daybreak

Debonaire House is shedding light on its latest cigar release. The company, best known for its Debonaire and Indian Motorcycle cigar lines, has launched Debonaire Daybreak—the first Debonaire to wear an Ecuadoran Connecticut cover leaf. The cigar started shipping to retailers last week. According to brand owner Philip Zanghi, the wrapper is aged for over a year before being rolled into a cigar.

“Daybreak is a blend of the same tobacco's that we use in the regular Debonaire line, but the main difference is in the Ecuador Connecticut wrapper that is aged for over a year to take some of the bite out of that type of Connecticut wrapper and make it more creamy,” brand owner Philip Zanghi told Cigar Aficionado. “That’s why I call it Daybreak—it's a new day, a new era for the Connecticut smoker.”

Underneath the Ecuadoran Connecticut wrapper is a Dominican binder and filler tobacco from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. Daybreak is shipping in six sixes: Corona, at 6 inches by 46 ring ($11.53); Belicoso, at 6 by 54 ($13.25); First Degree, 4 by 44 ($6.00); Robusto 5 by 50 ($12.46); Sagita 5 1/2 by 38 ($8.74); and Toro, 6 by 50 ($13.00). Each size comes packaged in 20-count boxes.

The original Debonaire launched in 2012. A maduro version debuted in 2014. Debonaire Daybreak is the third iteration of the brand. The cigars are rolled at the De Los Reyes Cigars, SRL factory in the Dominican Republic.

Distributed by Drew Estate, Debonaire Daybreak is sold exclusively at Drew Diplomat retailers.
