The Year of the Rabbit Limited Edition marks the eleventh execution of Davidoff’s yearly celebration of a Chinese zodiac. This year’s edition comes in a smart-looking box of ten perfecto cigars that once again redefines the standard of luxury product packaging.
Like the Rabbit’s personality, the box’s lacquered exterior is elegantly calm and does not yet reveal the depth it holds inside. Its lid tastefully displays the Year of the Rabbit icon. The Year of the Rabbit pattern, inspired by a rabbit’s gentle and steady hops, is visibly raised across the lid.
Upon opening the box, aficionados will first see an inner wood panel in line with the box’s design. It not only protects the cigars, but also enhances the excitement of unboxing the Limited Edition for the first time. Underneath the panel, the inside of the wooden box is reminiscent of a rabbit warren with interlinked sections for the ten perfecto cigars.
The blend of the Limited Edition consists of well-aged filler tobaccos with an average maturity of 4,5 years. This highly anticipated Year of the Rabbit Limited Edition will please loyal aficionados and collectors around the world.
TASTING NOTES –
1/3 – A bit shy in the beginning, this well-crafted perfecto develops and delights with pronounced pepper notes, soon to be counterbalanced by flavours of roasted nuts and cream.
2/3 – The constantly changing taste impressions show how complex this cigar is. Leathery notes start to form in the second third, together with hints of coffee and dried fruit.
3/3 – The intensity slightly increases in the last third but never overwhelms the palate. An additional cacao sweetness, joined by cedar wood and fresh spice concludes this masterpiece.
