On April 4, 2017, YRB attended an event to announce the Davidoff Chefs Edition cigar — the result of Davidoff Master Blenders collaborating with six of the world’s top chefs.
The event was hosted by Davidoff’s Global CEO, Hans-Kristian Hoejsgaard and took place at their flagship lounge located at Brookfield Place in New York City.
The featured cigar was the Chef’s Edition, which is a 6″ x 54 toro with a Habano 2000 wrapper, Ecuador Connecticut binder and a filler blend of San Vicente Mejorado Seco, San Vicente Mejorado Viso, Piloto Viso, and San Vicente Viso.
It is a very limited edition, with only 5,000 boxes available worldwide.
The cigar is a collaboration between Davidoff of Geneva’s master blenders and six of the world’s most renowned chefs:
