Cigar News: Davidoff Reprises Their Iconic Millennium Lancero Cigar

Limited Edition Collection Joins Davidoff’s 2023 “The Difference” Campaign

Basel, Switzerland – For the second time this year, Davidoff Cigars surprises its loyal aficionados with a limited edition of an iconic White Band Collection cigar which was most beloved in its day. As part of its ongoing 2023 “The Difference” campaign, the brand has launched the Millennium Lancero Limited Edition Collection; a re-stage of the former Millennium Blend Lancero.

“Back in its day, the Millenniun Blend Lancero was renowned for being the format to fully enjoy the blend’s special 151 wrapper,” said Oettinger Davidoff AG CMO, Edward Simon. “Today, the reborn, limited-edition cigar once again stands representative of our ceaseless pursuit for perfection.”

Simon also pointed out that it took Davidoff’s Master Agronomists 300 trials to create the special hybrid seed for the Ecuadorian wrapper leaf used on this cigar. Additionally, the cigar’s pigtail format requires the rolling skills of only the most experienced torcedores.

The Millennium Lancero Limited Edition Collection Taste Experience

A Mexican binder encases four different filler Dominican tobaccos all capped with the proprietary Ecuadorian 151 wrapper. Rolled to a 7″ x 40-ring gauge, the Lancero presents an intense yet refined taste experience. Notes of oak wood and coffee lead-off and reveal an aroma of sweet prunes. Dark chocolate complements intense flavors of almonds and white pepper at the midsection, while pronounced flavors of peat are augmented by sharp white pepper and licorice in the final inches. Overall, the smoke issues a medium-plus body up to 45 minutes.
