If you have ever smoked a cigar by Davidoff you know that all Davidoff cigars maintain well-defined standards of quality and excellence. The tobaccos that are used in the different blends have been cultivated in accordance with the most ancient traditions, in the richest soils and ideal climatic conditions of carefully selected fields. All Davidoff cigars are handmade, and for over five centuries this art has been passed on from generation to generation.
The Griffin’s follows these impeccable standards and is also superbly elegant. The Griffin’s Nicaragua is the first time the Griffin’s brand has utilized tobaccos from Nicaragua and Honduras, and the cigar was even created in Nicaragua, which is new for Davidoff as most of their brands are crafted in the Dominican Republic. The Nicaragua comes packed full of Nicaraguan and Honduran long-fillers which are firmly secured with a Dominican binder and a Nicaraguan Habano wrapper. Medium to full bodied, this spicy stick tends to lean more to the fuller side with instant notes of pepper and spice that progress into notes of cream, cedar, hay, and coffee. Balanced, spicy, and complex, pair this smoke with a martini during cocktail hour.
The Nicaraguan cigar industry originated when Cuban cigar makers escaped the revolution and re-established their livelihood in Nicaragua with Cuban-seed tobacco. Blessed with dark, rich soil, their new home was ideal for tobacco cultivation and Nicaragua quickly became known for cigars that rivaled Cuban quality. Unfortunately, revolution and war came to Nicaragua in the 1980s and devastated the industry, but it’s rebounded dramatically and is once again producing tobacco considered by many to be the finest in the world.
The Esteli Valley is in many ways the heart of Nicaraguan production and is known for its very powerful and spicy tobacco. The Jalapa Valley produces arguably the finest tobacco in the country: somewhat sweeter and less intense than Esteli, but extremely complex. The tobacco of the Condega Valley is often described as a blend of the other two regions.
