Dylan Austin, VP Marketing of Davidoff USA, declares: “To achieve our objective, our specialist have worked together with a team from Flor de Caña, in Nicaragua, to select the barrels with the optimal humidity, some of them have conserved rum for 25 years. The result is a strong new blend, that invites the aficionados from around the world to dive in to the barrel of the true Nicaraguan spirit.”

The blend is made of a Ecuador Habano wrapper, a Mexican binder and the filler is a mix of Dominican Piloto Cubano, Honduran Corojo Ligero and Esteli Corojo aged in rum barrels. They are manufactured using the Powerband technique, a combination of two bunching processes: an accordion style folding technique, used in the the Dominican Republic, and the Cuban entubado technique, where the tobaccos are rolled in to cylindrical tubes.
