Our Master Blender guided a single veteran cigar roller. Sorting through specific tobaccos in all 10 blends and changing their position and percentage of each tobacco to create this especially unique cigar in Davidoff Master Blender Eladio Diaz’s private collection. The process in creating this blend revealed an intricate process of elimination of certain tobaccos, to achieve a flavor experience conceptualized in our Master Blenders mind from his experience of blending and crafting cigars.
