The Griffin’s has announced its second installment of its Club Series series. The Griffin’s Anniversary Edition 2014 is a limited edition cigar that is intended to pay homage to the roots of the brand – namely the 50th anniversary of The Griffin’s club and 30th anniversary to The Griffin’s brand.
The Griffin’s is a brand in the Davidoff portfolio. The origins date back to 1964 when Bernard Grobet formed The Griffin’s nightclub in Geneva. In 1984, Grobet created the first Griffin’s cigar (thus launching The Griffin’s brand) that was meant to be an exclusive to his club. Eventually he started selling the cigar around Switzerland which led to a more widespread distribution. This ultimately led to the sale of the brand to Oettinger IMEX AG – the parent company of Davidoff.
The Griffin’s Anniversary is the second of what is intended to be a three cigar series called the Club House II. This follows the Griffin’s Special Edition Club Series I 2013 which was introduced late last year. Like Club Series I, the Club Series II is a 5 1/2 x 52 Robusto, but is an entirely new blend. Most notably Club Series II uses a Habano Ecuador 2000 wrapper while Club Series I used an Ecuadorian Connecticut.
At a glance, here is a look at The Griffin’s Anniversary Edition 2014 Club Series II:
Wrapper: Habano 2000 (Ecuador)
Filler: Dominican: San Vincente Visus, Olor/Piloto Visus, Criollo Ligero
As mentioned the The Griffin’s Anniversary Edition 2014 Club Series II comes in one size – 5 1/2 x 52 Robusto. The cigars are packaged in boxes of ten and each cigar goes for $15.88
