While the Montecristo brand is celebrating its 80th anniversary, another iconic brand is also celebrating the same milestone. This year Dunhill Cigars is commemorating the 80th anniversary of the Don Candido line – the first line exclusively made for Dunhill. Just prior to the 2015 IPCPR Trade Show, Dunhill Cigars announced the Dunhill Signed Range Selección Suprema cigar to commemorate this milestone. The cigar was showcased at the 2015 IPCPR Trade Show.
In a press release, Steven Kron, regional account manager of Dunhill Cigars said, “Don Candido was the first cigar ever manufactured solely for Dunhill, thus beginning the brand’s legacy of exclusivity. It is with great pride that we debut Selección Suprema, a cigar that honors Dunhill Cigars’ commitment to bringing the very finest handmade cigars to connoisseurs throughout the world.”
The Dunhill Signed Range Selección Suprema is a limited production cigar described as the brand’s most exclusive to date. It features a blend consisting of a Jalapa Shade wrapper, Connecticut Broadleaf binder, and fillers from Jalapa, Esteli, and Brazilian Mata Fina. The cigar is being made in one size – a 6 x 50 Toro packaged in 8 count boxes. Each cigar will have a suggested retail price of $20.00.
The Dunhill Signed Range Selección Suprema is expected to arrive in stores this October.
The Dunhill brand can be traced back to Alfred Dunhill’s tobacco shop that opened in 1907 on Duke Street in London. Today Dunhill is distributed by General Cigar Company.
