Davidoff Cigars globally unveiled the new Davidoff Escurio, an extension of Davidoff “Black Label” series. The name stems from “oscuro,” a cigar term for the darkest shade of wrapper, and “Rio,” as in Rio de Janeiro. Davidoff Escurio is being made in Santiago, Dominican Republic, with a mixture of Brazilian and Dominican filler tobaccos, a Brazilian binder and an Ecuador Havana wrapper.
“When we built the blend, the inspiration came from Rio nights,” says Charles Awad, senior vice president of global marketing and innovation at Oettinger Davidoff Group, “Rio is a melting pot there’s lots happening. When you start somewhere, you don’t know where you will end up.”
The cigar has three sizes, none of them more than six inches long. The Short Robusto measures 3 1/4 inches long by 50 ring gauge; Robusto Tubo is 4 1/2 by 54; and Gran Toro is 5 1/2 by 58. The cigars will be offered in boxes of 12 or 14, along with four-packs. The Robusto will be offered in tubos. #EscurioNights #VivaDavidoff @Davidoff_Cigars
