Davidoff Flake Medallions are made from mature Virginia tobacco harvested from carefully chosen fields in areas of Virginia and North Carolina, plus pure Perique tobacco from Louisiana. The striking aroma of the Perique leaves paired with the natural sweetness of the Virginian plant gives this blend its characteristic flavor. The core of smooth, fermented Black Cavendish adds certain sophistication, rounding off these Davidoff Flake Medallions to perfection. The blend of Virginia and Perique is pressed into the thinnest of cakes and then put away to mature before being spun very tightly around a core of compacted Black Cavendish. This results in a huge cylinder of tobacco, which is again, put away to mature before being cut into medallions and packaged.
