Davidoff Chef’s Cigar – 2nd Edition

US$30 or RM122.81

Following on the success of their first limited edition Chef’s Cigar in 2016, in which Davidoff’s master blenders collaborated with six top European chefs, a second Chef’s Cigar was created this year. For the 2018 limited edition, Davidoff enlisted the talents of celebrity chefs Thomas Keller from The French Laundry, Bouchon and Per Se in the United States; Alvin Leung from Bo Innovation in Hong Kong; Klaus Erfort from Gästehaus in Saarbrucken, Germany; Heiko Nieder from The Restaurant in Zurich; and Shaun Rankin from Ormer Mayfair in London. Combined, these top chefs boast a total of twelve Michelin stars, with Thomas Keller accounting for seven of them. Naturally, the chefs are all cigar smokers. The result was a medium-plus strength 6 x 54 Toro full of creamy chocolate, pepper, and ginger, with a gentle finish. “One of the main things all of us wanted to achieve was a cigar that could be smoked throughout the day and in the evening," said Chef Keller, “because for a chef, there’s no set time when you can sit down and smoke a cigar."
