The Racon­teur

David­off pays trib­ute to Win­ston Churchill’s say­ings With new Cigar

Virtuozity - - Cigar News -

DAVID­OFF HAS AN­NOUNCED ‘The Racon­teur’, a new, lim­ited-edi­tion Gran Toro cigar. In­spired by the world’s most iconic cigar afi­cionado, Sir Win­ston Churchill, and named af­ter an as­pect of his per­son­al­ity as a mas­ter wordsmith, the cigar cel­e­brates some of his most renowned and mem­o­rable say­ings.

The Racon­teur ex­plores Sir Win­ston’s exquisitely crafted words and stim­u­lat­ing con­ver­sa­tion. Lines such as, “There is no such thing as a good tax,” and, “I am eas­ily sat­is­fied with the very best,” not only give us in­stant in­sight into the man’s mind, but are guar­an­teed to de­light and amuse afi­ciona­dos of pre­mium cigars.

The Racon­teur is a com­plex Gran Toro cigar that har­monises the to­bac­cos of Nicaragua, Mex­ico, Ecuador and the Do­mini­can Re­pub­lic. Ac­cord­ing to David­off, it of­fers a shiny and oily ha­bano Ecuador wrap­per. And in terms of flavour, nutty notes give way to an in­stant creami­ness that im­bues the cigar un­til the very end. The in­tense, com­plex aroma, the roasted notes and hints of pep­per, oak­wood and leather echo the other Win­ston Churchill cigars, but this cigar has more in­ten­sity of flavour.

The con­cen­tra­tion of flavour and aroma lasts the whole way through thanks to the 56 ring gauge and the Pi­loto Visus. David­off prom­ises a com­plex char­ac­ter driven by the unique 15-year-old San Vi­cente Ligero to­bacco blended with spicy Nicaraguan Es­telí and sweet/aro­matic Nicaraguan Con­dega to­bac­cos.

On the se­cond ring, each cigar car­ries one of Sir Win­ston’s quotes that have stood the test of time.

Ran­dolph Churchill, Sir Win­ston’s great­grand­son, said: “With all of my great grand­fa­ther’s achieve­ments, it was his abil­ity to be
