Davidoff Nicaragua

Davidoff Nicaragua cigarDavidoff, famed for producing ultra-premium cigars out of the Dominican Republic (and previously Cuba), introduced the head-turning Davidoff Nicaragua in 2013; using a Nicaraguan puro blend and rolled at their own Cidav factory in the Dominican Republic. This is the first in Davidoff’s “Black Label” series.

Davidoff Nicaragua is listed as “Nicaraguan” because, even though it is manufactured in the Dominican Republic, it utilizes an entirely Nicaraguan puro blend—this is the only circumstance we will allow for a cigar to be classified under a different country than where it is rolled.
