Davidoff has announced it is bringing back the Davidoff Robusto Intenso for a limited run. This is a limited edition that was first released in 2005. The cigar is scheduled to reach retailers in September.
The Davidoff Robusto Intenso features tobaccos aged up to seven years. The blend is highlighted by Davidoff’s proprietary Ecuador 702 wrapper over a Dominican San Vincente binder and Dominican fillers. The cigar is being released in one size – a 5 1/8 x 52 Robusto. The cigars will be packaged in ten-count boxes. There will also be five-count boxes made available for Global Travel Retailers.
“In the year 2005 Davidoff’s Master Blenders delivered on a pioneering challenge true to our founder Zino Davidoff: to create a cigar experience that is intense and complex, yet also exhilarant and smooth. For this task, they had masterfully achieved to blend tobaccos from five different regions of the Dominican Republic with an Ecuadorian wrapper and created the famed and highly decorated Robusto Intenso. We are honored to give aficionados the pleasure to enjoy this icon of the art of blending again after almost 15 years of waiting,” commented Edward Simon, Chief Marketing Officer at Oettinger Davidoff AG in a press released. “Not only being able to have the complete blend history of our cigars but also the ability to recreate iconic blends from our vintage tobacco stocks is one of our core differences that aficionados worldwide value highly with our brand and company,” he continues.
