In 1991, After 23 years of cigar production in Cuba, Davidoff made a crucial strategic decision to relocate its entire production enterprise to the Dominican Republic. It was a tough decision for a company which bore the symbol of ultimate quality in the marketplace. Indeed, the name Davidoff was well known as a synonym for world supremacy and a household requisite for the upper-class. But the Davidoff prestige was undoubtedly linked to its Cuban heritage and the globally publicized "divorce" spelled jeopardy for the Swiss giant. The people at the helm of corporate headquarters in Geneva have made the right choice. The production line was rebuilt in the Dominican Republic and the brand was launched and quickly regained its name as the epitome of cigar luxury. A carefully controlled series of events signifies the manufacturing of a Davidoff cigar. The tobacco has to be aged up to four years and only the finest leaves are used in a factory, exclusively dedicated to the Davidoff brand. All Davidoff cigars maintain well defined standards of quality and excellence. The tobaccos that are used in the different blends have been cultivated in accordance with the most ancient traditions, in the richest soils and ideal climatic conditions of carefully selected fields. The choicest leaves from various harvests undergo four years of aging, which imparts to Davidoff cigars their rich aroma and consistently smooth taste. All Davidoff cigars are handmade in the Dominican Republic, where for over five centuries this art has been passed on from generation to generation.
Distinct blends of aged Dominican Republic tobacco create the six Davidoff cigar lines: The full bodied and smooth Aniversario series, the delicate, yet rich flavor of the Classic series, the medium-body "Thousand" series, the full body Grand Cru, the new super-rich Milennium. And last but not least the fantastic Special series which includes the famed "Double R" and the "Special T".
