Ode to The Great Traveller
Davidoff continues the tradition of limited releases of its coveted Winston Churchill cigar range with the arrival of The Traveller. By Nick Walton
Limited to just 8,000 boxes worldwide, Davidoff has released its latest limited-edition cigar. The Traveller is a complex, multi-origin 50×5-format Robusto packed with flavor from Nicaragua, Mexico and the Dominican Republic. Released alongside a range of limited-edition accessories that include two humidors, an ashtray, a cutter and a cigar case celebrating Winston Churchill’s passion for travelling, The Traveller follows in the wake of other Davidoff limited-releases, including The Original Collection and the more intense The Late House, the industry’s first Scotch cask-aged blend.
The Traveller provides multi-layered notes of wood and earth at the start, soon followed by sweet and spicy flavors. In the second-third, palate-pleasing stimulations of sweet creaminess develop, with elegant notes of coffee, leather and hints of cinnamon spice, along with notes of pepper and nuts in the retro-hale. The cigar ends with intensified complex aromas of wood and leather, complemented by salted caramel notes in a delightful taste experience inspired by Winston Churchill’s rich character and the key places that marked the man’s life.
This unique cigar comes in a beautiful box inspired by leather travel cases, and which includes a Boveda humidification device that turns the case into a travel humidor that will allow aficionados to embark their favorite cigars on their next journey.
The icon applied to the cigar boxes reflects some of the key places that marked Sir Winston Churchill’s path, including London, Washington, and Marrakesh. This icon is also applied to 4,500 limited edition packs of five Corona cigars, available exclusively at select Duty-Free locations worldwide. While strength and flavours are the same, the aromas are slightly more intense due to the smaller ring gauge.
