Davidoff is launching limited edition The Late Hour. It’s a petit panatela and it won’t be offered to American retailers. Oettinger Davidoff is releasing the cigar because it’s suitable for the cold winter months.

Davidoff Winston Churchill

Since the relaunch in 2014, the Davidoff Winston Churchill brand has gained recognition in the global markets. The brand only grew more when the first Scotch cask-aged blend was released. That is the Davidoff Winston Churchill The Late Hour. Oettinger Davidoff picked that blend for the limited edition petit panatela.

“Winston Churchill’s days never stopped. From morning to the early hours of the next morning, the power of the great man never paused. Decisions to be made, alliances to be forged, wise words to be written. And all usually with a cigar in hand.” says Edward Simon, CMO at Oettinger Davidoff AG. “The many stories of this incredible leader, artist, and writer are such an inspiration and we feel humbled and excited about bringing to life these stories to the world of premium cigars with this campaign. Cigars were Sir Winston’s accompaniment to concentrate or converse, and he was a master of both.” 

The Davidoff Master Blenders were challenged to blend a small, thin cigar with the same complexity as the other Davidoff Winston Churchill The Late Hour cigars. They created a medium filler cigar with tobaccos from Ecuador, Sumatra, Dominican Republic and the unique Condega tobacco from Nicaragua aged in Scotch casks standing for a more robust flavor. The wrapper is a Habano seed tobacco from Ecuador. The result is this 4×38 petit panatela. The cigars come packed in tins of 5. And only 10.000 cigars have been produced. 

Limited Edition The Late Hour crystal spirits glasses 

Along with the limited edition cigars, Davidoff is revealing a set of spirit glasses in striking black design available only in very limited quantities. Entirely handcrafted by European glassware specialists with 120 years of history. Complementing the existing range of Davidoff Winston Churchill spirits glasses with their characteristic two notches to rest a cigar, this set of two comes in lead-free crystal, with finely cut facets on the rim of the glass to highlight the spirit chosen to pour. A Winston Churchill silhouette discretely adorns the bottom of the glass. 

Oettinger Davidoff is releasing the limited edition cigars and glasses in early 2020. But the release dates vary per country, just as the prices.
