Quai D'Orsay Capitolio (Ex. Francia 2018) Available for Sale
Regardless of being amongst the smallest Cuban Cigars brands, Quai d’Orsay never fails to deliver smokes of exquisite aromas, remaining always loyal to their characteristic light flavoured profile. Exclusively handmade for the French market, the Quai d’Orsay Capitolio Cigar (Ex. Francia 2018) is the latest launch to come from the brand.
THE BRAND – Although one of the youngest habano brands, Quai d’Orsay has a fascinating history. As we have discussed in our post, Quai d’Orsay: Recent History Behind the Brand, Quai d’Orsay was founded in 1973 by Cuba Tobacco Cigar Co. while it was first introduced as a Regional brand, specifically created for the French and Swiss market in an attempt to accompany some of these countries’ famous lifestyle products, such as champagne and foie gras. Quai d’Orsay Cigars became widely known for their Claro and Claro Claro wrapper leaves as much as for their mild and light flavoured profile. Besides the success of the brand's popular Coronas Claro cigar, Quai d'Orsay started to lose ground as darker shade wrappers became increasingly desired amongst cigar smokers. Nevertheless, Habanos S.A. and the Quai d'Orsay distributor for France managed to revive the brand, introducing two new sizes, both made using darker coloured wrapper leaves, capable of delivering plenty of strong and intense aromas, atypical of the brand’s profile.

FRENCH REGIONAL – Although Quai d’Orsay has now been transformed into a global cigar brand, its Regional Edition launches still aim to satisfy the aficionados' needs of the brand’s homeland, France. Extending their vitolario, the brand welcomed Secreto Cubano into their collection of Regional Edition cigars back in 2016. The Quai d’Orsay Secreto Cubano Cigar (Ex. Francia 2016) measures at 110 mm in length by a ring gauge of 40 and offers a unique yet very enjoyable smoking experience. Light it with the Defi Extreme S.T. Dupont Cigar Lighter and secure an even burn for your Secreto Cubano. Coming in a stylish matte finish, Defi Extreme Lighter is specifically created to endure extreme elements, from strong winds of up to 40 km/h to icy cold temperatures of below -10c, one of the best Cigar Lighters on the market.
CAPITOLIO CIGAR – Recently, Quai d’Orsay released the much anticipated Capitolio, the brand’s latest Edicion Regional for France. Staying true to the brand’s flavoured profile, the Quai d’Orsay Capitolio Cigar (Ex. Francia 2018) delivers plenty of light yet enticing flavours, suitable for both the cigar beginner and the aficionado. A relatively large smoke, Capitolio measures at 164 mm long by a ring gauge of 54 while its Sublimes vitola provides the smoker with approximately two hours of pure smoking bliss, a puro that no cigar smoker should miss out.
