For years, Davidoff has (almost) annually produced a truly singular cigar known as the Chefs Edition. As the name suggests, the blend is created in collaboration with some of the most respected chefs in the culinary world. For the 2021 blend, four chefs were consulted, representing various geographic regions:
Juan Amador (Vienna, Austria)
Norbert Niederkofler (Brunico, Italy)
Masa Takayama (New York City, U.S.)
Jorge Vallejo (Mexico City, Mexico)
As for the cigar itself, it’s looking as mouth-watering as an entrée from a high-end restaurant. According to Davidoff, these premium sticks kick things off with notes of cream and peppery cedar wood. Near the middle, floral notes mingle with cinnamon and coffee, culminating in a sweet finish of caramel and cacao.
This complex flavor profile is achieved using four Dominican fillers: piloto seco, hybrid 192 seco, San Vicente ligero, and piloto viso. These are held within a Mexican San Andrés negro seco binder and cloaked in an Ecuadorian hybrid 238 wrapper. All of this is delivered in a 7 x 48 Churchill.
As if all of that wasn’t enough, Davidoff packages these cigars in a box that is the ultimate marriage of form and function. The bottom of the box doubles as a beautiful ceramic ashtray, while the wooden top features cutouts for drinks, letting you use it as a coaster for up to two glasses.
