DAVIDOFF YEAR OF THE DRAGON LIMITED EDITION 2024

The Year of The Dragon Limited Edition 2024 marks the twelfth execution of Davidoff's yearly Chinese New Year celebration with a limited edition around a Chinese zodiac. It completes Davidoff's entire zodiac cycle which began in 2013 with the Snake.


The magical smoke which has spiraled through countless stories curls upwards from the cigar of the aficionado who is the noble, powerful Dragon. A born leader. Their knowledge and presence inspire others to follow and follow willingly. From their mouths comes not only fire but eloquence. The Dragon has the aura of the mythical. Luck, as well as endless energy, helps them achieve their goals. And what better way to celebrate than with the equally legendary Davidoff Year of the Dragon products?

TASTE EXPERIENCE OF THE YEAR OF THE DRAGON DOUBLE CORONA CIGAR

MULTI-ORIGIN BLEND IN AN UNCUT FORMAT

The cigar surprises aficionados with an uncut foot, meaning that the first inch (2.5 cm) is to be enjoyed without the wrapper. This requires utmost precision in not only rolling but also the blending of the 8 different tobaccos with a combined age 60 years. Despite the absence of the wrapper, the beginning of the cigar is very enjoyable and exemplifies a high skillset in craftsmanship, as Davidoff's Master Blenders created an intriguing switch in taste and sensation as soon as the wrapper leaf comes in with added depth and complexity of flavours.


PAIRING OF THE YEAR OF THE DRAGON CIGAR

A MYSTIC SYMBIOSIS OF FLAVOURS

The elegant and sophisticated Year of the Dragon cigar with its balanced flavours requires a fitting companion for a celebratory pairing.


The famous Kir Royale cocktail, which is composed of crème de cassis and champagne, is an ideal match. The fresh, fruity and sweet notes of the drink mingle perfectly with the cigar’s aromas of roasted nuts, honey and dark chocolate.

DAVIDOFF YEAR OF THE DRAGON MASTERPIECE HUMIDOR

88 LIMITED-EDITION GRAN TORO CIGARS FOR TRUE COLLECTORS

THE ARTIST AND THE ARTISAN

FROM OIL PAINTING TO MOSAIC

The artwork on the powerful Year of the Dragon Masterpiece Humidor was designed by the Chinese artist Zhang Zhaoying and translated into a delicate and splendid glass and mirror mosaic by the French mosaicist Sika Viagbo.

UNLEASHING THE DRAGON

The artwork on the humidor invites spectators to embark on a mesmerising journey to the mythical lands of the Far East, where the legend of the Dragon and its son unfolds. To bring the art to life on the humidor, Sika Viagbo creatively broke down Zhang Zhaoying’s painting into hundreds of perfectly shaped pieces and placed them on the humidor in a process of meticulous handiwork – a detailed approach requiring just as much precision as the creation of Davidoff’s cigars inside the humidor. It took Sika over 200 hours to complete the artwork on one single Masterpiece, as she cut and assembled the mosaic piece by piece.
