Back in 2006, Davidoff released three limited edition cigars to commemorate would have been the 100th birthday of brand founder Zino Davidoff. Today the company announced a limited return of what is considered by many to be the most iconic of the three, the Davidoff Diademas 100. The cigar will be a part of the company’s Vault program releases.
At the time of Zino’s birthday, three cigars were released: Diademas Fina (6 3/4 x 50), Robusto (5 x 50), and Diademas 100 (9 1/8 x 55). Last year for Davidoff’s 50th anniversary, the company brought back the Davidoff Diademas Fina for a limited run.
The Davidoff Vault Series is a vehicle introduced by Davidoff in 2018. It serves to re-release rare limited editions and other collectible cigars from the company’s history. The releases come out in small batches with allocations split between the Davidoff of Geneva website and select appointed merchants.
