Earlier today, Davidoff of Geneva USA began promoting its newest Chefs Edition release to retailers ahead of a national release next month.


The cigar is the same as last year’s release, meaning the Davidoff Chef’s Edition 2017 is a 6 x 54 toro extra that uses an Ecuadorian habano wrapper, Ecuadorian Connecticut binder and four Dominican fillers: piloto viso, San Vicente mejorado seco, San Vicente mejorado viso and San Vicente viso.

In fact, the only difference is that production has been increased by 10,000 cigars.

To create the cigar, Davidoff collaborated with six world class chefs.
