BLEND Bar with Davidoff Cigars (“BLEND”) announced today the launch of its first branded premium cigar, The BLEND Exclusive Salomones. A partnership five years in the making results in a truly rare and luxurious cigar made with exceptional tobaccos, hand rolled by a select few of the most talented rollers and produced by the maker of the finest cigars in the world, Davidoff Cigars. The cigar boasts a striking format with a ring gauge of 57 and a proud length of 8.5 inches, and is available exclusively at BLEND locations.
From seed to cigar, every ingredient has been singled out for special treatment to undergo 170 steps and over 300 manual operations to ensure the highest quality and consistency. The journey from seed to cigar takes years which reflects the time and care that has been invested into the BLEND Exclusive Salomones. The wrapper alone includes five-year-old tobacco from a region that is proprietary to only Davidoff Cigars and full of rich minerals that provides incredible intensity and complexity. In the aging process the cigar’s tobacco is lavished with the ideal temperature, light and humidity needed to create a cigar of such luxury. Blended by world-class Davidoff Master Blenders ensures that the color, construction, aromas and taste experience all meet the quality standards commanded of the BLEND Exclusive Salomones.
To celebrate five years of partnership between BLEND and Davidoff Cigars, this exceptional cigar has been hand crafted to the taste of BLEND’s meticulous founders. The cigar was blended to best reflect the unique characteristics and elegance of the BLEND experience. The cigar can only be rolled by the most experienced master cigar rollers due to its highly-intricate format, delivering an experience like no other that has been seen, held or tasted. It is one of the finest cigars ever made, fitting for a brand like BLEND where Luxury is Redefined.
Commenting on the launch, Corey Johnston, Co-Founder, stated, “This selection of cigars is as unique and distinctive as the award-winning BLEND experience, where luxury is redefined with elegance, class and sophistication. Every detail and aspect of this exclusive cigar was poured over by BLEND and Davidoff professionals to ensure a proper pairing with some of the finest bourbons, whiskeys and scotches in the world which are featured by BLEND. BLEND has been named the Best Cigar Lounge in the World by Cigar Journal and the Best Cigar Lounge in the U.S. by ICONIC Life Magazine. Such accolades deserve a premium cigar for the ages, available only at BLEND stores.”
“To celebrate five years of partnership between BLEND and Davidoff Cigars, this exceptional Salomones shaped cigar has been crafted in honor of the milestone. The BLEND Exclusive has been blended with the elegance and refinement of the BLEND experience in mind – an experience which was recently heralded as the most distinctive setting to enjoy premium cigars, along with fine food and spirits. We look forward to our continued partnership with BLEND, and to sharing the BLEND Exclusive Salomones with their discerning aficionados,” states Dylan Austin, President of Davidoff of Geneva Americas.
