Davdidoff has begun teasing its latest Vault Series release, the Ginza, a rerelease of a cigar that debuted in 2010 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Davidoff of Geneva — since 1911 flagship store in Tokyo’s Ginza District, which is known as a popular upscale district highlighted by numerous internationally renowned fashion house flagship stores, boutiques, restaurants and flagship electronic showrooms, according to the company.

The cigar is a salomon that measures 8 1/4 x 50 and features an Ecuadorian habano wrapper and binder, while the fillers contain three varietals from the Dominican Republic: piloto seco, San Vicente seco and olor seco.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
