“It is with great pride that we present this ninth installment of a limited edition range of Davidoff products celebrating the Chinese New Year as they have become highly sought after collectable items around the world.

The «Year of the Ox» cigar
The cigar, a Gordo format, is wrapped in a beautiful shiny, oily and dark brown Dominican wrapper and pleases the palate right from the start with a mixture of sweet and spicy notes. The Ecuadorian binder and blend of Nicaraguan and Dominican filler tobaccos transform the second third of the taste journey to creamy, cedar and nutty notes until the last third stimulates the palate with dark chocolate, roasted coffee and creamy notes. This full-bodied cigar provides yet again a carefully orchestrated taste experience by the Davidoff Master Blenders that will surely suit the ambitious, dependable and supportive personality of The Ox.
Limited to 13’900 pieces worldwide, the Davidoff «Year of the Ox» Limited Edition is presented in a beautiful box of ten cigars featuring signature red lacquer, gold accents, and a simple yet sophisticated icon representing the horns of an ox. This limited edition is the perfect gift for anyone wishing to celebrate the Chinese New Year with an exclusive cigar.
