April 3, 2014 (Basel, Switzerland)–Davidoff Cigars has made it a mission to delight the cigar aficionado by bringing him a variety of taste experiences and cigar pleasures with truly consistent quality – Davidoff Aniversario “No.3”, “2000” and Special “R”. This memorable comeback of purity, of originality, of refinement and of complexity to classic cigars is achieved with nuance and flavour. Rich with subtle aroma and untouched by neither fad nor trend, these are cigars whose enduring appeal speaks for itself. The relaunch of the Davidoff Timeless Classics under the banner “great cigars don’t need to shout” will be sustained by the global Davidoff brand campaign “Viva Subtlety – Viva Sophistication.”

Born from the rich soils and ideal climates of South America and the Dominican Republic, the Davidoff Classics were, and still are, created with passion and dedication. They are the choice of cigar for those who demand that unique mix of subtlety and sophistication. Those discerning people who know that a great cigar will only reveal its depths of flavour to those who will truly appreciate them.

Aniversario “No.3” – Leathery and roasted

Created to honour the 80th birthday of Zino Davidoff himself, this cigar was made to be enjoyed celebrating life’s great achievements.

The carefully balanced blend of tobaccos slowly allows hints of cedar and light spices to unfurl gently, accompanied by flavours of used leather and roasted nuts. The Aniversario “No.3” is the perfect cigar to enjoy whenever the occasion calls for a slightly stronger, medium-to-full bodied smoke- in the popular Toro format, this elegant and harmonious blend takes on a richer, more intense character.

Davidoff “2000” – Creamy and peppery

First crafted 35 years ago, this iconic cigar has been filling time beautifully ever since. As the very first Corona from Davidoff, its arrival created a stir amongst cigar lovers and it remains, unsurprisingly, the best-selling cigar around the world.

The perfect balance between medium ring gauge and length make it the cigar that defined a generation. Notes of coffee and pepper are particularly pronounced and the creamy after-taste is especially evident.

Davidoff Special “R” – Creamy and spicy

With a Dominican Republic fine filler tobacco and an Ecuadorian wrapper, the Special “R” is a cigar created in the best climates for producing the world’s finest cigars. The wide ring gauge of the Special “R” allows for three unconventional tobacco leaves to be used in the filler. They give rise to a truly harmonious experience, showcasing pronounced spicy flavours and a creamy aftertaste.

These three extraordinary cigars are now available together – a celebration of Davidoff’s heritage in quality and craftsmanship and a very contemporary invitation to explore elegant, refined, sophisticated and subtle smoking pleasure.

Davidoff’s Timeless Classics will be available in the following assortments and packagings at selected tobacconists in the US from beginning of April 1st.

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 previously the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for Major League Baseball, plus I'm a voice over artist. Prior to joining halfwheel, I covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
