WINSTON CHURCHILL - THE LATE HOUR
Davidoff proudly adds a new family member to its The Late Hour series in late January 2024- The Petit Panetela
Sir Winston Churchill was not a man to follow convention. When most people were thinking of their beds, Sir Winston found inspiration and creativity in the long dark hours of the night. The dark was where he found his spark.
Davidoff celebrates this facet of the Great Man with a special cigar – The Late Hour.
“Every man has his day and some days last longer than others” – Sir Winston Spencer Churchill.
The Davidoff Master Blenders have mastered the challenge of blending a small format cigar offering complexity and signature Davidoff balance as multi-faceted as the great aficionado's character. A medium filler cigar with tobaccos from Ecuador, Sumatra, Dominican Republic and the unique Condega tobacco from Nicaragua, aged in Scotch casks standing for more robust flavours compared to its counterpart within The Original SeriesWrapped in a beautiful shiny dark brown Habano seed wrapper grown in Ecuador this Petit Panetela is crafted in a 38 x 4 format and is suitable for shorter moments of contemplation when the sun goes down. Notes of dark coffee and leather please the aficionado's palate when lighting the cigar while notes of pepper and wood develop. Hints of spice come forward towards the last third of the cigar all the while never lacking the signature Davidoff sophistication in taste and complexity. A delightful taste experience inspired by Winston Churchill's rich character and moments in life when time was of the essence.
