davidoffpuro Welcome back to and our second monthly installment of new releases. Today we have four new cigars to discuss, so let's quit wasting time and jump right in...

Davidoff Puro D'Oro


Davidoff fans have a newly released cigar from the brand to go pick up: the Davidoff Puro D'Oro. The cigar's release was finally made official on April 27, where many got to see the Puro D'Oro up close and personal for the first time at the Davidoff store in Manhattan. Those wishing to get their hands on the cigar now can do so with its wide availability online and in retail stores.

The Puro D'Oro is actually a cigar that is a long time in the making, if you consider just how long it took for Davidoff's Hendrik Kelner to finally get the wrapper used in the cigar perfected. Kelner had been trying grow a puro Dominican wrapper since 1996, and after ten years of trial and error he finally achieved his wishes by growing tobacco in the Yamasa region of the Dominican Republic. The Yamasa wrapper also happens to be the prized ingredient of the Puro D'Oro. The Puro D'Oro is also the first completely Dominican cigar from Davidoff. To promote the cigar, Kelner himself will be present on-location with a tour that encompasses thirteen cities.

Other than the its oily and dark Yamasa wrapper, the Puro D'Oro features a Dominican filler and binder. The cigar is finished off with a pigtail cap, similar to previous Davidoff offerings like the No. 1 and No. 2 that were released over forty years ago, showing that Davidoff is still heeding to tradition despite the move towards making a Dominican puro for the first time. The cigar is labeled as being medium-bodied, and smokers can expect to experience some hints of spice and coffee, among other flavors.

Davidoff offers the Puro D'Oro in four different sizes: the 4 1/2x38 Sublimes, the 4 7/8x43 Deliciosos, the 5 1/8x52 Magnificos, and the 5 5/8x46 Notables. One can only hope that the cigars live up to those enticing names, as well as the line's name, which means “pure gold.” You can find the Puro D'Oro in packs of four or boxes of 25. The boxes of 25 hold the cigars which come bundled by a silk ribbon that adds a bit of elegance and nostalgia, as Davidoff used the same packing method all the way back in the 1940's. You won't find any huge and loud bands on these cigars either. Instead, there is a simple, yet attractive golden band near the bottom that displays the name of the cigar's size.

The Davidoff Puro D'Oro retails at $9.50 to $16.50 per single, depending on its size. That's not chump change, but you have to expect to pay a bit more if you want to have “pure gold.”

I just picked up a single a week or so ago and I'm letting it sit for a while in my humi. I can not wait to try this one. Every time I walk by the humi I stare at it. Patience patience patience but I don't know how much longer I can hold out.
