Quai D’Orsay Cigars
It should be noted that for years, only Casa del Habano franchisees were allowed to sell Quai D’Orsay cigars. The Casa del Habano brand is a chain of stores affiliated with Cubatabaco. The latter was dissolved in 1994 to allow the creation of Habanos S.A. which is now in charge of the development of Casa del Habano. Today, several resellers have received authorization to offer Quai D’Orsay cigars for sale. Although these high-end cigars meet the requirements of the French market, they are quickly used in Germany as well as in several European countries.
Let there be no mistake. Certainly, it is a French brand. That said, the vitolas are entirely made in Cuba. Their tobaccos are rolled by hand and come from the Cuban region of Vuelta Abajo in the province of Pinar del Rey. It is for this reason that Quai D’Orsay cigars can be called puros. They are light, so light that they are on the Habanos list for beginners. The cape of these long tripe cigars has either a so-called claro coloration (extremely light brown) or a colorado claro color (gold brown). As a whole, the vitolas release a fairly pronounced woody aroma. Originally, the creations revolve around 4 modules, two of the best known (panatelas, grand corona) and two less known (Coronas Claro, Imperiales). In 2012, the Quai D’Orsay brand unveiled a creation exclusive to France and in a limited edition, the Robusto Embajador, constituting an opportunity for it to embark on the Robusto module. To enjoy the best of these cigars, they are left to age for a few years in their box.
