At the 2014 IPCPR Trade Show in Las Vegas, Victor Vitale’s Legacy Brands unveiled the new Ora Vivo Armand Assante World Edition.  This cigar features a slight blending tweak and well as some subtle packaging changes to the original blend.

The Ora Vivo Armand Assante cigar line was founded by veteran cigar maker Victor Vitale, cigar broker Gary Macchione, and film actor Armand Assante himself.  The partnership was formed in 2012 and the Ora Vivo cigar was released late in 2013.  Assante played an active role in the development of the blend.

The name World Edition is appropriate due to the fact that Assante travels around the world.

The packaging changes now feature a colorful array of international flags on the band, a slight change to the shade of the blue coloring on the silhouette, and was as some tweaks to the gold medallions.

Vitale described this as a fusion of the original Ora Vivo Armand Assante.  The packaging in the World Edition incorporates some elements from the Ora Vivo Armand Assante European edition – namely the white footer ribbons, and a similar white box.
