Dominican cigar Zino, the expertise of Mr. Davidoff, the myth of the cigar

 

Zino Davidoff left school when he was 20 and traveled all over the world to learn the ropes of the tobacco trade. He visited several tobacco farms between 1928 and 1931. During all these years, young Zino studied the tobacco production line, from the farm to the factory.

People start talking about his "Grand Crûs" and everywhere in France his name became a symbol of exclusive enjoyment.. The Châteaux line was manufactured by Hoyo de Monterrey, a manufacture in Havana, and packaged for the tobacco seller in Geneva.

Davidoff enjoyed worldwide popularity, and his relationships with Cuban authorities were excellent, until the end of the 80s...
