The Griffin’s has announced its third and final installment in its Special Edition Club House series. The Griffin’s Special Edition Club Series III will feature a theme of nightlife and entertainment. The cigar is a limited production cigar and currently available.
The series was launched in late 2013 with the Griffin’s Special Edition Club Series I 2013 and it featured a blend with an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper. The Griffin’s Special Edition Club Series II was released last summer. It featured an entirely new blend with a Habano Ecuador 2000 wrapper. The Club Series II also paid homage to the 50th anniversary of The Griffin’s club and 30th anniversary to The Griffin’s brand. The Special Edition Club Series III will use a Habano Ecuador Rojiza wrapper – a wrapper Davidoff has used on several of its other blends. All of the cigars in the series are Robusto sized measuring 5 1/2 x 52.

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.
