It is the unique 702 “Habano” wrapper, created by the Davidoff agronomists and grown exclusively for the brand at the Finca San Juan, in the Ecuadorian province of Cotopaxi. The nutrient rich soil – containing ash from the active volcano of the same name – and the persistent blanket of cloud characteristic of the region, offer the perfect growing conditions that result in the rich and intense wrapper leaves with a silky texture grown from the seeds.
“We are proud of our Master Blenders. With this series, they managed to surprise and delight cigar lovers who appreciate the play of aromatic contrasts. The proprietary Davidoff 702 wrapper combined with the signature creaminess of the Davidoff filler offers an incredibly smooth and intense taste experience. This depth of taste calls to be instantly loved by those who have yet the chance to discover this exceptional cigar line”, explains Edward Simon, Head of Global Marketing & Innovation at Oettinger Davidoff AG.
The Davidoff Selección 702 was the first release wearing the proprietary Davidoff 702 “Habano” wrapper from Ecuador. Launched in 2009, it did become a sought after collector’s item. For its 50th anniversary, Davidoff offers to American consumers the opportunity to rediscover this exceptional cigar, wrapped in aged 702 wrapper leaves for a more intense experience.
