Davidoff of Geneva had announced that its upcoming Davidoff Oro Blanco would be its highest priced offering to date. Yesterday the mystery of what the cigar would be priced at came to an end as Cigar Aficionado broke the news that the Davidoff Oro Blanco would come in at a whopping $500.00 per cigar.
While offerings such as the Davidoff Royal Salamones have come in around the $50.00 range the Oro Blanco blows that number away. It not only becomes the most expensive Davidoff, it ranks as one of the priciest cigars ever to be released.
The Cigar Aficionado article reports that the Davidoff Oro Blanco will be sold at Davidoff Flagship Stores, however Cigar Coop has been informed by several Davidoff Appointed Merchants that the Oro Blanco has been offered to them. The cigars are expected to ship by month’s end.
The cigar itself will be a Dominican puro in a 6 x 54 Grand Toro size. The tobaccos in the blend were set aside by Davidoff’s Eladio Diaz back in 2002. These tobaccos were deemed as special by Diaz and have been aging for over a decade. This makes the Oro Blanco Davidoff’s first vintage cigar.
Each cigar will be packaged in an individual handcrafted box. There will be ten handcrafted boxes in packaged in a larger box of Oro Blanco. The project has been described as a small batch, but details have not been disclosed.
At a glance here is a recap of the Davidoff Oro Blanco.
