Davidoff first released the Aniversario No. 1 in 1986 to celebrate Zino Davidoff’s 80th birthday which featured Cuban tobacco and was rolled in Cuba.  Eventually, production was moved to the Davidoff Dominican Republic facilities and was reblened with Dominican tobacco in replacement of the Cuban tobacco.  The Aniversario No. 1 was a staple of the Davidoff line up until it was phased out in 2016 with some other lines.  Late in 2023, Davidoff decided to re-release this historic line as a single vitola limited release as the Aniversario No. 1 Limited Edition 2023.  Having the year in the name, hopefully, means that Davidoff will be releasing this limited edition yearly or biannually.

From Davidoff:

In a gallery of the great cigars, the Aniversario No.1 would surely have its place. Made to celebrate Zino Davidoff’s 80th Anniversary, or birthday, and in keeping with the Davidoff way, this needed to be conceived differently, cut differently, a blend as exceptional as the occasion.

Davidoff has brought back this singularity smooth cigar for a limited period to be enjoyed again by both those who know its rare qualities and those who have yet to have the pleasure.

This Limited Edition cigar comes in a wooden cabinet slide lid box. Out of the ten double corona cigars, one comes in a wooden tubo which depicts the vintage Aniversario design, honoring the original release.
