Next month, the Davidoff Chefs Edition will return.

The Davidoff Chefs Edition 2021 is a 7 x 48 Churchill that uses an Ecuadorian hybrid 238 wrapper over a Mexican San Andrés negro seco binder and four different Dominican fillers: hybrid 192 seco, piloto seco, piloto viso, and San Vicente ligero.

It has an MSRP of $39 per cigar.

As it has done in the past, Davidoff developed the blend with a variety of high-profile chefs. This cigar was created with four chefs:

  • Juan Amador of Amador in Vienna
  • Norbert Niederkofler of AlpiNN, Brunico, Italy
  • Masa Takayama of Masa, New York City
  • Jorge Vallejo of Quintonil, Mexico City

The first three of those chefs have each earned three Michelin stars.

“The third installment of our Davidoff Chefs Edition unites the staggering expertise of nine Michelin Stars and expresses the common values that the masters of both crafts share,” said Edward Simon, chief marketing officer of Oettinger Davidoff, in a press release. “These common values include a focus on sustainable sourcing and the respect for only the finest ingredients. The conscious way they are grown and sourced, as well as the innovative methods they are married together, imagining new flavour combinations leading to new taste experiences. But most important, the Davidoff Chefs Edition 2021 meets the demand of our collective passion perfectly: the love for the finest cigars and culinary experiences.”

The bottom part of this year’s boxes is made of ceramic, which allows for the box to double as an ashtray once the cigars are removed. In addition, the top part of the box, made of wood, has cutouts so it could function as a placeholder for glasses.

Production is limited to 9,700 boxes of 10 cigars. It will begin shipping on Sept. 16, 2021.
