Davidoff Cigars extends Brazilian Escurio Line to celebrate Rio

Davidoff Cigars introduces cigars and cigarillos to its Brazilian blended Escurio Line, offering aficionados new occasions in which to enjoy a taste adventure inspired by a night in Rio.


Davidoff will be introducing globally new formats to its successful Escurio range starting as of June 2016. New Escurio cigars include a Corona Gorda and Gran Perfecto, along with Primeros and Mini Cigarillos for those occasions where one is short on time.

These cigars follow on the heels of the acclaimed Escurio range with its Robusto format, which obtained a score of 93 and was rated the best cigar in the acclaimed Cigar Journal’s blind tasting in March 2015. “A true sweet meets spice experience, an overall masterpiece, an explosion of different notes comparable to a flavour encyclopaedia,” stated Cigar Journal.

Brazil is rhythm. Brazil is intrigue. Brazil is originality. Brazil is Rio.

Davidoff’s mission is to bring the modern cigar aficionado diverse and innovative cigar experiences. Escurio’s inspiration starts in Rio de Janeiro, the soul of Brazil, and in the rhythms, intrigue and rich experiences of its nights. Davidoff’s Master Blenders crafted an exciting Brazilian blend that delivers an intense spicy and sweet palate stimulation, with all the excitement and refined sophistication aficionados would expect from Davidoff.

The taste expericence
The new Corona Gorda cigar intrigues when spice meets sweet as chilli pepper plays with softer, creamy notes. Flavours of oak, liquorice, salt and leather explode and overwhelm the palate. A real journey of twists and turns, where there is never a dull moment for the palate.

The taste experience
Luxury when time is a luxury. Davidoff Escurio Mini Cigarillos are a taste journey into exciting stimulations and sensations offering a beautifully filled 5 minute experience. Blending a mini cigarillo with a 20 RG to offer a similar taste experience and enjoyment as a 50 RG long filler cigar is a real challenge to any Master Blender. Eladio Diaz, Davidoff’s head Master Blender, took on the challenge and crafted the Escurio cigarillo that is well balanced and reminds one of the typical Davidoff Escurio flavours. With a mix of Brazilian tobaccos in the filler and the higher impact of the Brazilian binder and Ecuadorian wrapper, sweet and spicy aromas with hints of leather, wood and chilli flavours tantalize the palate.

Launch and availability

The official launch of the new Escurio cigar formats Corona Gorda, Gran Perfecto, Mini Cigarillos and Primeros is set for June 2016, after which they will be available globally.
