Davidoff once again releases its “Year of” Masterpiece Gran Toro cigar as a special limited edition. The Flagship Exclusive 2024 provides esteemed Davidoff of Geneva since 1911 customers with an opportunity to also fill their time beautifully with the exclusive cigar that is otherwise only available as part of the 25 Masterpiece Humidors (see separate newssheet).
The Flagship Exclusive cigars come in an impressive box of 24 cigars. The main point of focus is the Dragon icon in the center of the top surface of the box, which shows the majestic Dragon holding a pearl, while the packaging’s noble appearance is enhanced by the iridescent varnished dragon skin pattern.
Upon opening, aficionados will find three trays with eight cigars and a silky red ribbon each. The latter takes inspiration from the dragon’s tongue and allows aficionados to pull the trays out separately. The front side shows a golden serial number plate. The imposing Gran Toro delights with the same tobacco varieties as the Year of the Dragon Limited Edition 2024 double corona cigar. Thanks to its format and bigger ring gauge, the Gran Toro cigar creates a taste experience that comes across as slightly smoother and more balanced.
Limited to 600 boxes worldwide.
1/3 – The uncut foot of the cigar offers an inch of enjoyment without the wrapper leaf, during which earthy, wooden and herbal notes are present. Once the wrapper takes over, the taste changes to rich notes of roasted nuts, cream and subtle liquorice.
2/3 – The intensity rises in the second third, when notes of sweet honey, white pepper and citrus dominate. The Gran Toro format and 8 different types of tobaccos of a combined age of 60 years create and elegant and sophisticated taste journey.
3/3 – In the cigars final third, fresh spice and oak wood complement the dominating notes of dark chocolate. The intensity remains the same as before, making the last part of this masterpiece especially smooth and well-balanced.
