Cigars which celebrate the game and one which celebrates the winning—

Davidoff launches its new Golf Scorecard Edition 2016 Basel, February 2016. The Davidoff Golf Scorecard Edition 2016 has been created with moments of shared golf pleasures in mind.

100599_dav_gol_2016_001For this new edition, Davidoff Master Blenders decided to play the long game, taking adventurous, great shots. The cigars themselves have been designed like the most rewarding courses and are the perfect accompaniment, whether out on the course or back in the clubhouse.

“Sharing cigars and comparing scores is a treasured ritual of any round of golf. And as every scorecard has a story to tell, you will enjoy reviewing the tale of the tees with your friends (and rivals), whilst hopefully savouring one of the special Winners Cigars included. You will relish every nuance of these exclusive Gran Toros and be able to fill your scorecard as beautifully as your time out on the fairways,” explains Charles Awad, Senior Vice President of Global Marketing & Innovation at Oettinger Davidoff AG.

The Blend

The majestic Gran Toro format of this Davidoff Golf Scorecard Edition 2016 allows the aficionado to enjoy the cigar’s intensive but balanced and nuanced taste over its entire length. The front nine delivers oaky, coffee notes, whilst the back nine brings it home with sweet honey tones.

When lighting it up, peppery notes are paired with an enjoyable creaminess, combined with flavours of hardwood, roasted coffee and salted nuts. The hardwood and the roasted notes are trading up in the second third with a beautiful added complexity deriving from the Dominican Mejorado tobaccos in the filler and the Piloto binder from the Martin Garcia zone. In the last third, aromas of a well brewed Darjeeling tea with a hint of honey are present, and the last puffs have a delightfully earthy character.

Finally, both the cigar pack (of five cigars), in an elegant white, and the second rings carry a golf pattern. The one cigar boasting a distinctive golden second ring serves to reward and honour the winner.
