Davidoff Nicaragua Getting Two New Vitolas (Update)

Null

As expected, the Davidoff Nicaragua line will expand this summer. The company will add a Primeros size (4 1/8 x 34) and Diadema Finas (6 1/2 x 50) to the line at the 2014 IPCPR trade show and convention according to information confirmed by Cigar Aficionado. Neither size is entirely shocking.

For months, information regarding Primeros by Davidoff Nicaragua has been trickling out. It will come in two wrappers: a Nicaraguan and a Mexican Sumatra. The cigars will feature an Ecuadorian binder and Dominican and Nicaraguan fillers. They will be packaged in tins of six with pricing set at $29.90.

The Davidoff Nicaragua Diadema Fina began to leak last month. It will be the fifth cigar to feature the Davidoff Nicaragua blend, which was introduced last year. Pricing is said to be $17.90 per cigar.

Update (June 30, 2014) — The company has issued the following press release.

June 30, 2014 (Basel, Switzerland) — Building on the global success of Davidoff Nicaragua, Davidoff Cigars is introducing a handcrafted cigar, ideal for shorter moments of adventure: “Primeros by Davidoff – Nicaragua.”

With a spirit of adventure and a determination to find innovative and exciting taste experiences, Davidoff’s experts are on a continued journey of exploration. This exploration led them to develop a gorgeous cigar that is perfectly suitable for those aficionados looking for a truly unique adventure, but are sometimes pressed by time. New Primeros Nicaragua is a blend that combines the intriguing intensity of Nicaraguan tobaccos grown in the volcano- enriched soil in the Ometepe, Jalapa and Esteli regions, with the refined sophistication of Davidoff. This new, shorter format takes just 15 minutes to appreciate.

“Fifteen minutes of adventure can be filled beautifully, thanks to Davidoff. With our hand- crafted Nicaragua Primeros, our aim is to delight aficionados, who are in the mood for short adventures in today’s hectic lives, with an exciting taste experience,” explains Charles Awad, Senior Vice President Global Marketing and Innovation at Oettinger Davidoff AG.

The launch of “Primeros by Davidoff Nicaragua” will come in a stylish and protective black tin that is perfectly suited for on-the-go adventures. It will coincide with a full packaging redesign of the current white Primeros Dominican range. Until now Davidoff “Primeros” have been present in two Dominican versions (Classic and Maduro). These now come in a new and more modern white tin packaging design under the name “Primeros by Davidoff – Dominican”. The blends of the Dominican versions remain the same as the current successful Primeros blend.

Primeros by Davidoff Nicaragua

The “Primeros by Davidoff Nicaragua” offer the same taste experience as the regular Davidoff “Nicaragua” line: peppery and creamy, with a bitter-sweet aftertaste. This small cigar impresses with its deep flavours and its medium strength.
