Davidoff has released a new sampler geared towards cigar lovers looking for a shorter smoke because of weather, lifestyle or simply lack of time.

The Davidoff ‘Pause’ assortment features five cigars designed to be smoked in under 35 minutes, making it ideal for people who “lead a life filled with commitments, but who would love to put aside a little time in their day to savour a delicious cigar. Luxury when time is a luxury,” according to Charles Awad, Senior Vice President Marketing & Innovation at Oettinger Davidoff AG, via a press release.

Included in the sampler is an Entreacto, Millennium Blend short robusto, Nicaragua short corona, Nicaragua Primeros and a Puro d’Oro Sublimes. The cigars range from smooth to full bodied with flavor offerings for all palates and situations, and for those in a true time crunch, the Primeros by Davidoff Nicaragua can be enjoyed in as little as 15 minutes.

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.
