Who doesn’t remember Marlon Brando, holding a cigar in one hand, cradling a deeply creased forehead in the other, in the iconic film ‘The Godfather’? Call me a romantic, but the one thing that made this movie series even more timeless—other than a brilliant director and talented cast—was the cigar. These burning stogies reflect character, class and pleasure; a perfect complement to fine scotch, rum or even premium beers, this combination makes for the most relaxing leisure companion.

The Finest Cigars in the world

All the tobacco-growing regions in the world have their own micro-climate, which influences the growing process. Each micro-climate provides a unique opportunity to produce tobaccos with subtle differences in flavour and complexity. Microclimatic conditions depend on unique factors of temperature, humidity, wind and turbulence. While the market for premium cigars in India is still evolving, taxes are on the higher side, which has somewhat hampered its growth potential. But, this hasn’t stopped signature cigar brands—Davidoff Cigars, Habanos, Rocky Patel among others —from finding their way to Indian cigar aficionados. “It’s exciting to see the evolution of the cigar market in India and we are delighted to offer a choice to cigar smokers in the country,” says Vikas Malu, Founder, NV Lifestyles, official partners for DavidoffCigars in India.
