Davidoff created its first pipe tobacco 45 years ago and only 6,000 tins of this anniversary edition will be available globally. And how better to enjoy it than with the Pipe Limited Edition 45 Years? Pipe aficionados should not waste time, as only 45 pieces will be available. Davidoff has been particularly creative with its limited editions and we can guess that the new Davidoff Golf Limited Scorecard Edition 2016 will soon become a favorite amongst golf players. The pack contains five cigars: four cigars to be shared with the players on the course and one to reward the winner. The four cigars feature an exclusive "Golf" second ring while the last one has a distinctive gold second ring, the trophy of the winner. This edition will be available throughout the year and a new Golf cigar will be released every year. Davidoff's inspiration with Winston Churchill knows no limit and their latest Da- vidoff Winston Churchill Limited Edition 2016 is sure to get aficionados talking, as this limited edition of Grand Toros celebrates some of the great man's finest sayings: each cigar carries a famous Churchillian quote on its second ring. Hurry, as only 6,000 boxes of 10 cigars have been crafted. Following the concept introduced a year ago, Habanos is soon launching two new assortments of their Añejados line: Partagás Coronas Gordas Añejados (46 ring gauge x 143mm long) and Hoyo de Monterrey Hermosos No.4 Añejados (48 ring gauge x 127mm long). Both references are not present in the standard portfolio and are launched as Edición Especial in limited quantities. The Habanos Añejados are commercialized in their original boxes, which had no label during the 5 to 8 years aging process and have been dressed with the corresponding labellings of each brand only for their release. At the bottom of each box is the date of the original rolling. Such puros need a perfect cut: the really cool Siglo Dragon Swivel Cutter with three punching sizes gives a clean and sharp punch to cigars of 42 to 56-ring gauge. Available in three colors, they also make beautiful and unusual gifts. And to continue on stylish Siglo accessories, they are stepping into the edgy territory of tattoos with Siglo Tattoo Cigar Case. Designed by Joey Pang from Hong Kong's worldwide famous Tattoo Temple boasting a five-year waiting list, these cigar cases are impeccably crafted in soft leather and come in five designs: Dragon, Smoke Dragon, Tiger, Skull, and Traditional Painting. Keeping within the Chinese inspirations, Lotus Vertigo lighters present some quirky Cantonese designs. If you'd rather be a little more traditional with your lighters, head to The Wall of Cigar in Macau, where you can find the Lotus Vertigo and the Lotus Black Label Tornado table lighter as well as the newest Adorini humidors which can contain up to 150 cigars.
