Davidoff Manhattan


If you enjoy a challenge, and love huge cigars, Davidoff has a new offering that might pique your interest with its “Manhattan” release. The Manhattan is a limited edition release that honors the late Sidney Frank. In case you were wondering, Sidney Frank is a former billionaire and was the man responsible for bringing the popular alcoholic beverages of Jagermeister and Grey Goose Vodka to the public. Frank could often be seen smoking a very large Davidoff cigar, which was apparently made just for him. To mirror that special cigar enjoyed by Frank, Davidoff has decided to release the Manhattan so that cigar lovers can enjoy it as well.

The Manhattan is one cigar that you will need an ample amount of time to enjoy as it measures a whopping 8 2/3x 54. Despite its intimidating size, Davidoff claims that the Manhattan is a rather smooth cigar that is not likely to overwhelm in its strength. It features a Dominican filler and binder, as well as an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper that appears to be silky smooth.

If you are interested in purchasing a Manhattan, it won't be easy. The cigar is only offered at Davidoff's stores in New York City. It is also quite expensive, at $36 per single, or $360 for a box of ten. Who knows, maybe if you are on vacation in the Big Apple one day and want to know what it's like to smoke like a billionaire in style such as Sidney Frank, you might splurge and pick up a Manhattan for yourself.

Second Growth Cigars


Wine lovers that are also cigar enthusiasts have a new selection to try: Second Growth. Second Growth is a new brand made specifically for wine lovers to pair with their favorite beverage. Eric Hanson, a wine importer, is the man behind the idea, while famed Hendrik Kelner of Davidoff is the man behind the production of the cigar.

The Second Growth filler is labeled as a special “HMK 36” blend made from only the highest quality leaves from the harvest. The binder is a hybrid made of 80 percent Dominican and 20 percent Honduran tobaccos. Completing the cigar is a hybrid Ecuadorian Habano wrapper. This complex mix of ingredients gives the Second Growth unique flavors that are said to make it a perfect complement to fine French Bordeaux or American Meritage wines. Among the flavors one can expect while smoking are those of chocolate, spice, and leather.
