Davidoff has announced this year’s Winston Churchill Limited Edition, and for the first time, there will be a Winston Churchill cigar in a double perfecto shape.
The Davidoff Winston Churchill Limited Edition 2022 is a 5 7/8 x 61 double perfecto that the company says should combine elements from both the regular Davidoff Winston Churchill and the Davidoff Winston Churchill The Late Hour. It uses an Ecuadorian wrapper over a Mexican San Andrés negro seco binder and five different fillers. Three of the fillers are from the Dominican Republic—piloto mejorado viso, San Vicente mejorado seco and viso—while the other two are secos from Condega and Estelí, Nicaragua.
Each cigar will have an MSRP of $34 per cigar and will be at stores the first week of February. It is limited to 5,000 boxes of 10 cigars in the U.S.
Elements of Sir Winston Churchill, the person, are used throughout the packaging. This includes a letter from Randolph Churchill, his great-grandson, in the box. Davidoff says the box itself is inspired by the look of Churchill’s briefcase.
This is the fourth year Davidoff has released a limited edition for the Winston Churchill line, though the most recent two have been in odd years, 2019 and 2021 respectively. While the secondary bands are similar, the blends and sizes are different between the various years.
