With the holidays fast approaching many of us will be looking to get the perfect gift for the cigar aficionado in our life. Cigars are unique, in the way that they allow anyone to enjoy a taste of luxury. When buying cigars this Holiday season we like to focus on a philosophy of quality over quantity. The cigar should be something special; maybe something they normally would splurge on for themselves. Brands like Davidoff, Arturo Fuente, and Padron offer some exceptional cigars that can accomplish this luxurious feeling. A perfect example of a cigar worthy of gifting this holiday season is the Davidoff Limited Edition Year of the Rat. A cigar like this is rich, flavorful and complex and is an excellent cigar to celebrate an occasion with. Purchasing one or two cigars of this caliber, rather than a handful of their “everyday” cigars is a great way to give your loved one a few hours of luxury and show them how special they are to you.

The Davidoff Vault program which began in 2018, is a place where cigar aficionados can go to visit, or reacquaint themselves with factory reserves, vintage classics, and private and rare collections; these are cigars you won’t find anywhere else and are only offered in limited quantities.

In the year 2015 Davidoff released its second installment into what is known as the “black- label series” of cigars.The cigar in question was called the Escurio. The “black- label series” was groundbreaking for Davidoff; in the way that it used exotic tobaccos sourced outside of the Dominican. The success of this series has shaped the Davidoff portfolio into what it is today. Prior to the black-label series of cigars Davidoff had been known as a brand that focused on lighter blends, with a focus on dominican tobaccos. The success of blends like the Escurio, changed that perception forever. The Escurio blend is one of my personal favorites, and is somewhat of an underrated blend in the Davidoff portfolio.
