More info about purchasing Davidoff Puro d'Oro cigars...
Launched back in late April of 2010, the Davidoff Puro D’Oro Series is credited to the famous Hendrik Kelner. According to the April 13, 2010 issue of Cigar Insider the wrapper leaves for these cigars are “grown in Yamasá, an area of the Dominican Republic north of the capital city of Santo Domingo and far from Santiago and its surrounding tobacco fields.” This cigar by far bears the darkest wrapper in the Davidoff Collection (minus the maduro line). Also, worth noting is that at that time the Puro D'Oro was the first new Davidoff release in more than 10 years (since then, the brand released many more new blends).
These cigars are available in four different vitolas: Magnificos 5 1/8 x 52 (review by Ed); Sublimes 4 ½ x 38; Deliciosos 4 7/8 x 43 (review by Inspector) and the Notables 5 5/8 x 46 which I am reviewing today.
The packaging is in the old Cuban style of slab boxes with 25 (cigar wheels) wrapped in a yellow silk band bearing the name Davidoff.
