There are two Davidoff cigars that are arriving in bundles of 10 arriving in select stores, only, they aren’t part of the company’s Vault program.
The Davidoff Piquant has begun arriving in a limited number of stores in both Robusto (5 x 50) and Gordo (6 x 60) sizes. It uses an Ecuadorian habano wrapper over an Ecuadorian Sumatra binder and fillers from Nicaragua. Most retailers have the Robusto priced around $28 per cigar, while the Gordo is priced at $34.
Davidoff says this isn’t an “official Vault” release, though images of the cigar show a sticker that has the Vault program branding. Furthermore, the nature of the release is more or less the same as Vault.
A spokesperson for the company told halfwheel that only a few hundred bundles are being sold.
