The cigar features a Dominican wrapper, Mexican San Andrés Negro binder, and a filler blend that includes Dominican piloto visus, Yamasá visus and San Vicente mejorado ligero, as well as Nicaraguan visus from Estelí. The company says it drew on influences from both the Dominican Republic and the chef’s home countries—Germany, Switzerland, the United States, Great Britain and Hong Kong—in creating the profile for the blend.
It is being released in a single 6 x 54 toro vitola priced at $30 per cigar, before taxes. It comes wearing the Davidoff 50th Anniversary primary band as well as a special secondary band denoting the line, which is accented by a stylized toque blanche, the traditional white chef’s hat. The cigars are packaged in 10-count boxes with a total of 5,000 made for worldwide distribution, though only 2,500 are slated for U.S. retailers. It will only be available at Davidoff appointed merchants and Davidoff of Geneva — since 1911 flagship
