Ben is a big fan of the Dunhill Heritage (it got an honorable mention on his top ten list last year) and as a pipe geek, he was looking forward to talking to Steven Kron about Dunhill’s cigar and pipe tobacco offerings. So it only made sense for him to step out from behind the camera to take us on the Dunhill tour.
We get started with the new Dunhill Aged Maduro which features a dark Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper, which Mr. Kron says makes it Dunhill Aged blend more intense and flavorful without making it significantly stronger. It will come in three vitolas, the Short Churchill, Short Robusto and Marevas.
We also take a look at the “special production” Dunhill Heritage Robusto Humidor Collection. It comes as a set of twelve cigars, all variations on the robusto vitola that aren’t currently available in the Hertiage line, none of them box-pressed. 2500 of the numbered and humidified boxes have been made globally, 500 of them earmarked for the U.S. market.
And then it’s onto the new pipe tobacco offerings. And by new, that means new to the market, but they’ve actually be around in years past. There’s Dunhill Ye Olde Signe, which was first made in 1915 and Dunhill Dark Flake which was created in 1971.
