Davidoff is releasing a limited edition cigar, Special 53 – Capa Dominicana, crafted entirely of tobaccos from the Dominican Republic. Special 53 – Capa Dominicana is a unique 53-ring gauge perfecto cigar featuring a vintage blend that uses tobaccos that have been aged for up to 10 years.
“It is the pioneering spirit of our founder Zino Davidoff that the craftsmen at Davidoff relentlessly seek to mirror in their daily achievements. When challenged with crafting a blend of 100% Dominican tobaccos back in the 1990’s they set on a journey to identify suitable areas, cultivating soils and developing hybrid seeds that would yield tobaccos fit for the challenge. After nearly 20 years that journey found its completion in 2002 when our master blenders had turned these tobaccos into the beautiful and refined Special 53 – Capa Dominicana cigar,” says Edward Simon, chief marketing
officer at Oettinger Davidoff AG.
He continues, “It is this achievement, of leading the way to make the cultivation of wrapper tobaccos in the Dominican a reality that we celebrate today with the re-release of this limited edition. The 53-ring gauge Perfecto format was developed especially for said wrapper leaf to deliver its taste impact optimally,” he continues.
The Davidoff Special 53 – Capa Dominicana features a Capa Dominicana wrapper leaf that’s been aged for over 10 years. The wrapper gives the cigar a rich, creamy, spicy smoke. The binder leaf, which has been aged for over 8 years, along with the Dominican filler tobaccos that have been aged for up to 6.5 years comes together to create a sensational tasty cigar. The aging process for the tobaccos in this cigar give Special 53 – Capa Dominicana a deeply complex, subtle richness and sophisticated taste journey. Special 53 – Capa Dominicana is presented in boxes of 10 perfecto cigars measuring 53 x 6 1/8 and boxes of five cigars, available in Global Travel Retail featuring a natural wood design and an icon highlighting the vintage cigar’s blend.
Davidoff Special 53 – Capa Dominicana will be available in July 2020 at select Davidoff Appointed Merchants, Flagship Stores and Global Travel Retail stores.
