It’s called Churchill for a reason. The Churchill format was Winston Churchill’s favorite format. These cigars are created by Davidoff of Geneva to give honor to the legendary statesman who became the prime minister of the UK from 1940 to 1945 and once more from 1951 to 1955. Winston Churchill is known as one of the 20th century’s greatest wartime leaders.
This type of cigar is impressive, and it’s known for its complexity. It comes in an elegant size and comes with highly sophisticated flavors and a multi-organ blend one that is a combination of spice, wood, and chocolate. These cigars come in four original sizes which have a unique blend of 5 unique and precisely selected seed filler tobaccos from the Dominican Republic mixed with the Nicaraguan leaf and a Negro San Andres binder.
The two new sizes, first the Belicoso which is sold in tins of 4 and the Petit Panetela which is sold in tins of 5. The Petit Panetela has is made up of a Pelo de Oro binder, a Habano Ecuador wrapper, and a mix of Dominican and Nicaraguan filler. The Belicoso, on the other hand, gives you a full-flavored smoke when you have limited time.
Davidoff Winston Churchill cigars are thought of as the culmination of all the ideas of Randoff Churchill who happens to be the great-grandson of Winston Churchill. According to him, “A great cigar was Churchill’s favorite traveling companion and, whether he was being Statesman, Commander, or dinner party guest, he was rarely without one… he always had time for a cigar.”
As mentioned above, these premium cigars are known to possess the perfect blend of tobaccos that are found around the globe including countries like Nicaragua, Ecuador, Dominican Republic, and the binder coming from Mexico while wrapped using the Ecuadorian Sun Grown wrapper. Davidoff Winston Churchill cigars require the skills of Torcedors working in the Davidoff factory to roll these cigars to come up with its perfect construction. These cigars are intended for those who have a refined palate. And the best thing about it is that the aficionados can revisit these cigars often.
