2017 Viaje Leaded Double Edged Sword – Just Arrived!
Anthony’s Cigar Emporium just received the 2017 Viaje Leaded Double Edged Sword.
In 2010 Viaje released an iconic 5 ¾ x 52 Double Perfecto format called the Double Edged Sword that was a Nicaraguan puro using a criollo wrapper. Only 3,125 cigars were produced and it is now highly sought after by Viaje collectors.
In 2017 Viaje is releasing the Double Edged Sword for the second time in the very popular Exclusivo Leaded blend. The Viaje Leaded Double Edged Sword will be the second release of the Exclusivo Leaded, which is an all-Nicaraguan blend using medio tiempo leaves. Medio Tiempo is one of the highest priming leafs that only grows on a very small percentage of tobacco plants – so it is often quite limited. Medio tiempo is known to provide strength, body, and flavor.
The Viaje Leaded Double Edged Sword is packaged in boxes of 25 stamped Leaded in red and the cigar has the Exclusivo Leaded label with a red and black Viaje logo.

Davidoff Year of the Rooster 2017 Limited Edition – Shipping Nov. 11, 2016
Anthony’s Cigar Emporium, a Davidoff Appointed Merchant, has learned that Davidoff will be shipping the Year of the Rooster on November 11, 2016. Davidoff Lunar New Year limited editions are always a hot commedity given their very limited one-and-done releases. The Davidoff Year of the Rooster 2017 is a 6 3/4” x 50 Diademas Finas vitola. The Davidoff Year of the Rooster 2017 is exquisitely packaged in distinctive, handmade 10 ct. red and dark brown lacquered wooden boxes representing the shape of a rooster’s plumage and with motifs that reflect the aesthetic origins of Chinese culture.
The unique and very complex, medium to full bodied blend composed by Davidoff Master Blenders under the direction of Henke Kelner has notes of hazelnut, nougat, and a well-pronounced creaminess. The Year of the Rooster features proprietary varietals from the Dominican Republic (San Vicente Mejorado Binder and Piloto Seco, San Vicente Visus, Piloto Visus and Criollo Seco Filler blend) all covered with a dark and oily Ecuadorian Habano wrapper. The total production of the Davidoff Year of the Rooster 2017 was strictly limited to the availability of the exceptional tobaccos used to create this blend, and only 4,500 10 ct. boxes were made for this very limited edition release. This is truly a connoisseur’s smoke, and the past lunar new year releases have been worth the hefty price tag.
