Quai D'Orsay Cigars
Quai D’Orsay are best suited for the European market. For example, the Imperials are a light, sweet smoke not usually associated with Churchills. Generally, the brand has dry, aromatic, woody flavours. Although, some blends have a milder flavour that is a little more consistent.
The Quai D’Orsay cigar brand was created in 1973 mainly to appeal to the growing French market. The French market was more open to the milder taste with a lighter wrapper hence why the company introduced their Corona cigars with a lighter shaded Claro Claro wrapper. As this fashion died out in the late 1980’s, so did the Corona Claro Claro, it was replaced by the Corona Claro; a 5 5/8″ cigar with a 42 ring gauge (143 x 16.67 mm). All sizes are hand rolled in Cuba with a light tasting blend of leaves from the Vuelta Abajo region.
