Teeing Off with Davidoff

Along with carts and clubs, a commonly encountered item on any golf course worth its greens fees is cigars. It seems most duffers cannot play their best game without one. But not just any cigar—it cannot be too strong or it will be distracting, yet it must possess enough strength to aid concentration.

In keeping with its new theme, “Time Beautifully Filled,” Davidoff has created just such a smoke. The limited-edition Masters Edition Club House Toro is a 6¼×52 gran toro, just the right length and strength for a nine-hole round. Seven thousand boxes, each containing 10 cigars ($219 per box/$21.90 each), have been produced, with half of these reserved for the United States.

Appropriately packaged in a golf-ball-themed white-lacquered box, each cigar sports a matching “Club House” secondary band. With its Dominican Republic Yamasá wrapper, Mejorado Dominican filler, and Ecuadoran binder, the Masters Edition Club House Toro tastes of cedar and moist green grass, with a sweet, spicy finish. And best of all, you can put it down while looking for your ball and five minutes later, pick it up and find it still smoking—just like your game. (www.davidoff.com/)
