Last year, Davidoff released six of Eladio Diaz’s birthday blends to retailers as part of the company’s Master Selection Series honoring its master blender.
Now, there are 15 more cigars coming under the name.
They are called Master Blend Selection 1, Master Blend Selection 2, etc. A total of 15 cigars—all 6 x 52 and all $35—each inspired by Diaz’s travels. As for the blends, the company isn’t disclosing tobacco varietals, instead describing each cigar based off its flavors and intensity.
The cigars are being sold in bundles, meant to be placed inside custom crates that are themselves designed to be placed in Davidoff’s shop-in-shop displays.
Davidoff describes the cigars as “limited,” though it’s not disclosing exact production numbers. Additionally, retailers are not required to take a specific quantity of cigars.
This is not the first time that name has been used. The Davidoff of Geneva — since 1911 flagship stores in New York City have had various Master Blend Selection cigars on sale, though those were not necessarily in the 6 x 52 size.
The Master Blend Selection Series is expected to ship before the IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, which begins July 13 in Las Vegas, Nev.
