To delight the palates of aficionados around the globe, Davidoff Cigars celebrates the Chinese Year of the Pig with exclusive Limited Edition cigars and accessories.
2019 marks the Year of the Pig, a year that celebrates luck and wealth of the zodiac sign, the Pig, known for its compassionate and generous nature. Those born in this year have a natural talent for success, and being around them is potentially as good for your fortunes as for your spirits. When a Pig is in the room, the atmosphere brightens – just as it does when lighting a fine Davidoff cigar.
The impressive pigtailed Gran Toro cigar fittingly celebrates the Chinese New Year with the Pig’s almost pig-headed determination to pursue a goal of prize. Once they identify their destination, Pigs will always find a way to complete their journey. They are also loyal and tend to form strong and lasting friendships. If you’re lucky enough to be friends with a Pig, they will happily share what is theirs: from their luck, to a good story, a bottle of something fine and delicious, to an exquisite cigar from this exclusive Davidoff limited edition.
The Year of the Pig cigars
The Gran Toro 6 x 56 format with its proud pigtail is wrapped in a shiny and oily Dominican wrapper from the Yamasá area and develops smooth notes of pepper and wood once lit. The Sumatra binder from Mexico and the well-aged filler tobaccos from the Dominican Republic create a refined, balanced and flavourful blend. Notes of liquorice, cream, vanilla, leather and spice not only delight the palate, but are also perfectly suited to please the big-hearted, determined personality of the Pig.
The special edition is limited to 9,300 boxes worldwide, and comprises of ten Gran Toro cigars presented in a prestigious, opulently lacquered Asian-inspired red box, sure to become an instant collectable. The Pig is represented by a simple and elegant graphic icon executed in gold. Within the box is a paper insert with the Year of the Pig story.
The Year of the Pig Limited Edition is the perfect gift for anyone wishing to celebrate Chinese New Year with a cigar.

Davidoff is also delighted to introduce its special edition Year of the Pig ashtray and double-blade cutter.
The Year of the Pig ashtray
Inspired by the Pig’s voluptuous curves, the Italian made round aluminium ashtray is enclosed with vibrant, grained, red leather to strikingly contrast the ashtray’s rich mocha colour. In keeping with the Pig’s generous nature, the ashtray has a steady holder for two cigars. The Davidoff logo is engraved on the metal and it comes in a limited numbered edition of 300 pieces.
The Year of the Pig double-blade cutter
The lightweight, German made slim cutter is expertly engraved with the elegant pattern. Its nonporous, stainless steel surface means it’s easy to clean and also ensures that it is resistant to corrosion for longevity. The double-blade ensures the cut is even and precise on both sides without ever crushing the cigar and the integrated spring system provides a balanced blade movement. The blades lock while not in use. It will cut from a 22 to a 58 ring gauge and is made available in a limited number of 300 pieces.
