Davidoff is a renowned brand worldwide. Zino Davidoff is the man behind the fine Davidoff products. He was born in Kiev, Ukraine in 1906, while Davidoff was still very young the family fled to Geneva, Switzerland because of the oppression of the widespread Anti-Semitism in Russia at that period. In 1970, they opened their first tobacco shop in Geneva and one of their regular customers was Vladimir Lenin a communist leader. At the age of 19, Zino Davidoff left for South America to learn more about cigars. He had spent two years at a Cuban plantation where he saw for the very first time, the widely popular Cuban Cigar. He successfully learnd everything about blending cigars.
The Cuban state?s tobacco organization known as Cubatabaco approached Davidoff requesting him to make a personal blend at the famous factory where Fidel Castro?s personal blend of cigars were being made, the El Laguito factory situated in Havana, Cuba. Eventually, after working together since the 1970?s they was a fall out between the two parties and in 1991 Davidoff halted the production of the Cuban Davidoff line. He moved his production to the Dominican Republic and began to produce the Dominican Davidoff line, which was masterfully blended to become an equal to the Cubans. These cigars were not meant to be similar in nature as the Cubans but were meant to be just as good as the Cubans.
Currently Davidoff boasts a wide range of high quality cigars produced only with the best tobacco leaves that have been aged for a full period of four years. These cigars are rich, aromatic, and smooth.
