His father is one of the cigar industry’s legendary master blenders; Avo was his adopted uncle, he knows the cigar business inside and out. He’s also just a really nice guy: Klaas Pieter Kelner, Davidoff Cigars Brand Ambassador, who talks with us about growing up at the heart of the business, the appreciation of a fine cigar, and more
What’s a good Davidoff cigar to try first?
A: To my knowledge, the Davidoff cigar manufacture does not make a Cameroon-wrapped cigar.* However, I would suggest something from the Davidoff Grand Cru cigars line. They’re medium-bodied for the most part, but are generally rolled in smaller ring gauges. If you’ve never tried any Davidoff, then I suggest you start with the Davidoff Aniversario #3. It’s one my personal favorites. They come in a box of 10, but the three pack tubos (shown) are much more affordable. (Well, I guess it depends on how you define affordable. ;-), but they’re absolutely wonderful.
