Davidoff Cigars Escurio

The wrapper on the Davidoff Escurio is an Ecuadorian Habano, which Davidoff describes as “dark habano.” The binder is Brazilian Cubra and the filler is a blend of Dominican (San Vicente, Piloto and Olor/Piloto Seco) and Brazilian (Cubra and Mata Fina). Davidoff describes the blend as medium bodied with slightly sweet and spicy flavors and complex aromas. “Get ready for an exciting taste adventure! Rio’s intriguing and rhythmic nights were hugely inspiring for our Master Blenders in helping craft a superb multi-origin blend with the finest Brazilian tobaccos at its core. Davidoff Escurio will take aficionados along on a rewarding taste exploration where sweet meets spice with unexpected twists and turns along the way,” commented Charles Awad, Senior Vice President Global Marketing & Innovation at Oettinger Davidoff AG in a press release.

The name Davidoff Escurio is derived from two words “Escuro” (the Portuguese word for “dark” or “oscuro”) and Rio (i.e. Rio De Janiero, the city in Brazil that inspired this blend). As Dividoff is described on its website: "From the beginning, the cigar intrigues you when spice meets sweet as Chili pepper plays with softer, creamy notes. Soon this is being complemented in the next phase by flavors of oak, liquorish, salt and leather. Lastly coffee aromas arrive culminating in a finale of charming complexity. As you happen upon new tastes around every corner of this captivating cigar, there is never a dull moment for your palate."

The Davidoff Escurio is a outgrowth of Davidoff’s core brands that feature Dominican Binders and Fillers under superb wrappers with construction and burn that are the gold standard for premium cigars. Davidoff began this adventure outside of the Dominican Republic when it produced the Davidoff Nicaragua Toro which received a 93 rating by Cigar Aficionado. Davidoff continues to purchase farmland in Nicaragua and is deeply committed to producing a Nicaraguan cigar that meets its exacting standards. The Davidoff Oscurio is also produced in black boxes with a black Davidoff blend. Since Davidoff has the time and resources to fully develop a line before release, these cigars should be silky, oily, and smokable right out of the box.

Much like the Davidoff Nicaragua’s initial launch, the Davidoff Escurio will be available in Petit Robusto (3 1/4 x 50), Robusto (4 1/2 x 54) and Gran Toro (5 1/2 x 58) sizes. The cigars will be offered in boxes of 12 or 14 (Petite Robusto), along with four-packs of each format. The Robusto will be offered in tubos. The Davidoff Escurio Robusto received a 93 rating in the Cigar Journal. The review states: “A true sweet meets spice experience, an overall masterpiece, an explosion of different notes comparable to a flavor encyclopaedia." The cigar is rolled at the Davidoff factory in the Dominican Republic.
