Winston Churchill 2022 Limited Edition Available 2/3/22
For the first time, Davidoff is offering their newest Winston Churchill cigar in a perfecto vitola. The 60+ RG (at it’s widest) perfecto is a limited edition cigar for 2022 that could very well become a recurring edition each year, but we have no confirmation of that. These incrdible-looking cigars will be packaged in bundles of 10 in a box designed as a recreation of the briefcase Winston Churchill himself carried to and from his residence at 10 Downing Street. As a further touch, included in the “briefcase” is a letter to the aficionado from Sir Winston Churchill’s great grandson, Randolph Churchill. Davidoff announced last week that the cigars will officially go on sale tomorrow, February 3, 2022, but like many of there limited-run cigars, the 2022 LE probably wont last long.
Davidoff states the blend details of the 2022 LE were inspired by the desire for a combination of key attributes from both the Original Winston Churchill Series and the The Late Hour Series. The resulting profiles they say are bestw paired with an Earl Grey tea or a good port, anytime of the day.
The 4-country blend features tobaccos from the Dominican Republic, Mexico, Nicaragua and Ecuador. The sole vitola is an elegant double perfecto measuring 5 7/8″ x 61.
