There will be yet another cigar with Florida sun grown tobacco heading to stores near you, this time from Davidoff.

It’s called the Davidoff Florida Selection 2018, a 6 x 52 belicoso.

While the name might say Florida, the wrapper is actually from Ecuador, a habano 2000 varietal. Underneath that is a habano binder from Jalapa, Nicaragua over fillers from Estelí, Nicaragua and a variety of Dominican fillers: piloto viso, San Vicente seco and Yamasá ligero.

That Florida Selection name refers to a single filler tobacco: a seco from central Florida.

That tobacco is grown in Clermont, Fla. on a farm owned by Jeff Borysiewicz, best known as the owner of Corona Cigar Co. Davidoff has previously released a cigar with some of the Florida sun grown tobacco, though it was exclusive to Borysiewicz’s own store.

This will be the second cigar using the Florida tobacco to be sold nationally, following FSG, which is made and distributed by Drew Estate.

Pricing is set at $29.90 per cigar and it is limited to 2,500 boxes of 10 cigars.
