Explore. Adventure. Discover. Journey into Davidoff Nicaragua

Preparing, curing and aging this tobacco for 10 years with the unique expertise of Davidoff cigar craftsmen in the Dominican Republic allowed us time to ‘tame’ the wilder tendencies of Nicaraguan tobacco and deliver a blend with intensity and excitement and all the refined sophistication you would expect from Davidoff.

The new ‘Davidoff Nicaragua’ line will come in three sizes: Toro (5 inches by 50 ring), Robusto (5 by 50) and Short Corona (3 by 46), and the blend combines a 10-year old, Havana-seed wrapper with a binder from Jalapa and a filler blend of tobaccos from Estelí, Condega and the volcanic region of Ometepe. ‘Davidoff Nicaragua’ will only be available in limited quantities per year.

“This is a major step, for us to expand to a new territory” says Davidoff CEO Hans-Kristian Hoejsgaard. “I wanted to develop products that were not necessarily origin-specific or rigidly tied down to one specific place. Davidoff is a brand, not a territory.”

In summary, a PURO Nicaragua with Davidoff’s signature sophistication running through it – for those who share our passion for exploration and for filling their time beautifully.
