On July 3rd, 2017, Davidoff Cigars announced the release of their newest cigar, Davidoff Winston Churchill – The Late Hour for the 2017 International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailers Association (IPCPR) Convention and Tradeshow. Here’s the press release:
“Sir Winston Churchill was not a man to follow convention. When most people were thinking of their beds, Sir Winston found inspiration and creativity in the long dark hours of the night. The dark was where he found his spark. Davidoff celebrates this facet of the Great Man with a special cigar – The Late Hour. ‘Winston Churchill – The Late Hour’ contains tobacco aged for six months in finest Scotch single malt whisky casks, a feat no one has attempted before. The tobacco absorbs the aromas of the cask and whisky, which suffuses the cigar with a unique complexity, depth and the headiest of flavours, creating a unique stimulation of the palate. The cask aged Nicaraguan Condega Visus tobacco, together with the two different Dominican Visus filler tobaccos and the dark Mexican binder unravels the complexity of this full-bodied blend. Beautiful, robust flavours of black pepper, dark coffee, sweetness, old leather, wood and spiciness tantalize the palate. To reflect the darkness during which Sir Winston was his most creative, Davidoff has selected a shiny and oily Habano Ecuador wrapper in a beautiful dark chocolate colour.”
There are three vitolas: 5 x 52 Robusto, 6 x 54 Toro, and 7 x 48 Churchill.

My favorite high-end cigar is the Davidoff Winston Churchill Robusto. I look forward to trying the new Winston Churchill – The Late Hour. Davidoff, feel free to send a box or two!
