Davidoff launches the nicaragua Box Pressed line to tan­ta­lise the Palate

Virtuozity - - The Humidor -

FOL­LOW­ING THE LAUNCH OF its ac­claimed Nicaragua line, Davidoff Cigars has launched its first ever Nicaraguan box­pressed line, the Davidoff Nicaragua Box Pressed. This Nicaraguan Puro marks the first time that Davidoff has in­tro­duced a box-pressed cigar.

“Davidoff’s mis­sion is to open the afi­cionado’s world by en­cour­ag­ing them to ven­ture beyond the fa­mil­iar, their go-to cigars and ori­gins, and ex­plore new ways to fill their time beau­ti­fully,” said Charles Awad, Se­nior Vice Pres­i­dent of global Mar­ket­ing & in­no­va­tion at Oet­tinger Davidoff Ag.

The colour of the dark and oily Nicaraguan Ha­bano Os­curo wrap­per from the Jalapa re­gion is a deep, rich brown with an in­tense pep­pery smell to it. From the first taste, the cigar re­veals its po­ten­tial with wild pep­per notes, roasted al­monds and a deep

The Dai will of­fered an ex­clu­sive pre­view of the sin­gle- chan­nel video, ti­tled ‘from Many Sides’, at the Mov­ing im­age art fair from March 3 to 6, 2016 in new York City.

as a Ja­maican-french artist and videog­ra­pher, olivia Mcgilchrist’s work is rooted in a Caribbean-cen­tered, multi-me­dia art prac­tice that cou­ples new tech­nol­ogy with lo­cal plat­forms to ex­plore con­tem­po­rary cul­tural con­nec­tions from the african Di­as­pora. By in­ter­weav­ing mov­ing im­ages and sounds, the artist suf­fuses the nat­u­ral world with new mean­ings and col­ors that
