Davidoff North America president Jim Young was a guest on Kiss My Ash Radio and confirmed a couple of projects the company is working on. First up, the company will be releasing another cigar to commemorate the Chinese New Year and this one will be called “Year of the Horse”. Young also mentioned there will be two cigars to commemorate 25th anniversary events around Davidoff.
The “Year of the Horse” cigar is a follow-up to the Davidoff 2013 Year of the Snake. No details on the cigar were disclosed, but Young commented in regards to the Year of the Horse cigar other than the comment, “it will be bigger and better than the snake”. No timetable was mentioned on when the cigar will be released other than it will be a post 2013 IPCPR Trade Show.
Young also mentioned there will be two cigars to commemorate 25th anniversary events surrounding Davidoff. One cigar will revolve around the company’s 25th anniversary in the United States. A second cigar will commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Davidoff store on Madison Avenue in New York. No details or timetable was released on these projects. There was a Davidoff 535 cigar released in 1997 which commemorated the 10th anniversary of the Madison Avenue cigar (535 was the old address of the store, the store is now at 515 Madison Avenue). The 535 was a toro-shaped vitola and is considered the start of the Davidoff White Label limited edition. Ten years later, a 20th Anniversary 535 was released to commemorate the store’s 20th anniversary. The 20th Anniversary cigar was perfecto shape.
