When the first non-Cuban Davidoffs were released, the world fell in love; this was the mellow cigar smokers had been waiting for. However, it is very difficult to follow up such a successful release. Well, Zino Davidoff and his team were more than up to the challenge. The Grand Cru was crafted in an attempt to capitalize on the original series, only with a new twist. It is hand rolled with vintage tobacco grown in the Dominican Republic for its binder and filler. Its luxurious wrapper is a delectable Ecuadorian grown Connecticut leaf. Like all Davidoffs, this cigar is exceptionally smooth, while also offering richer profile than its predecessor. It has notes of toasted almonds, coffee, cream, cedar, and a rich sweet spice that stays on the tongue. The Grand Cru has become one of the staples of the Davidoff brand, so make sure you try one out right away.
