Press Release – July 2013 – Building on the success of its first vintage offering, Dunhill proudly announces the launch of Dunhill Aged Reserva Especiale 2006, a limited edition cigar that celebrates the finest of Dominican tobacco.
Steven Kron, regional account manager for Dunhill cigars and pipe tobacco commented, “In 2006, climatic conditions were ideal for tobacco cultivation in the Dominican Republic, and an exceptional Piloto Cubano crop was harvested from the famed Cibao Valley. After seeing how beautifully the tobacco was curing in the sheds, we decided to set it aside for deep maturation, and use this superlative tobacco in our second Dunhill Aged Reserva Especiale offering.”
The vintage Piloto Cubano leaves were aged in tercios for seven painstaking years, and served as the foundation of the blend. To achieve the cigar’s rich, complex flavor, a touch of Brazilian Mata Fina punctuates the blend, which is enveloped with a lustrous and silky Connecticut Shade wrapper. The result is an opulent smoke, brimming with creamy flavor nuances.
Dunhill Aged Reserva Especiale 2006 will be released in September in one exclusive size, created expressly to maximize the cigar’s unique flavor and aroma. The Robusto Grande (5.5” x 54) will have a suggested retail price of $15.00 per cigar, or $150.00 for a box of ten. Due to the rarity of the tobacco that comprises Dunhill Aged Reserva Especiale 2006, production has been limited to a mere 3,000 boxes.
As with all cigars in the Dunhill Aged range, discerning smokers can expect that the experience of smoking Dunhill Aged Reserva Especiale 2006 will be sublime, beginning with flawless construction and culminating in a finale of great finesse.
