DAVIDOFF – 2019 “Year of the Pig”


Greetings my Cigar Aficionados, are you looking for a cigar to welcome 2019?…
Davidoff 2019 “Year of the Pig” (Limited Edition) 

As predicted once again, Davidoff has released a limited-edition cigar in relation to the Chinese zodiac calendar, The Year of the Pig. This beautiful cigar comes with two bands. One being the classic Davidoff white label, and the second band representing the Year of the Pig. This production is limited to only 9000 boxes of 10 displayed in a lacquered red box.

2019 “Year of the Pig’ with it’s Habano wrapper, and unique pigtail cap.
  • Wrapper: Ecuador Habano 2000
  • Binder: Mexico, San Andres
  • Filler: Nicaragua (Esteli Ligero), Dominican Republic (Piloto Visos, Hybrid Plor Piloto Visos, Piloto Seco)
  • Length: 6″
  • Ring Gauge: 56
  • Size : Gran Toro

Description of the cigar: This elegant cigar is wrapped with a shiny and oily Habano 2000 from Ecuador. It smokes medium to full. Once lit, it starts with a nice smooth draw with a creamy note of oak and pepper. Together with the San Andres binder from Mexico, the filler tobacco from Nicaragua, and Dominican Republic creates a complex note of sweetness, oak wood, hazelnut, leather, and pepper.

Smooth draw with a beautiful ash.

Second third I’m still maintaining a nice draw, with the same consistency of creaminess as before. As I retrohale I could find some pepper notes along with a touch of earthy leather. So far, my cigar is burning evenly.

 As my cigar comes to a finishing note, I found the oak becoming more dominant along with a touch of some pepper; however, it finishes moderate. I truly enjoyed smoking the Grand Toro size (6″ x 56). So remember, these are a limited edition, don’t wait too long, or you may not have the pleasure of enjoying one fine Davidoff cigar.

Wishing all of my Cigar Aficionados a Happy 2019!
