BASEL, SW -- Inspired by Zino Davidoff’s pioneering spirit, we at Davidoff Cigars have made it our mission to bring the modern aficionado a variety of taste experiences and cigar smoking pleasures. Our experts, led by master blender Hendrik “Henke” Kelner, unceasingly explore every opportunity to create new and diverse ways of ensuring time spent enjoying each and every Davidoff cigar is time beautifully filled.
For this challenge, Henke and his team embarked on a worldwide search for tobaccos that would enable us to create a unique cigar. The search landed in the tobacco fields of Nicaragua.

Geneva, 13 November 2012 - On 9 November 2012, the Dominican Republic requested the establishment of a panel under the dispute settlement procedures of the World Trade Organization ("WTO") challenging Australia's plain packaging measures for tobacco products. The Dominican Republic has asked that this request be included on the agenda of the WTO Dispute Settlement Body meeting on 17 December 2012.
From 1 December 2012, Australia will mandate that all tobacco products be sold in plain packaging. Packaging will be a standardized drab brown colour, with the brand and variant name in a standardized font and place, banning all logos or other design features. This move will prevent tobacco products from using their well-known trademarks and geographical indications.
