"One of the first-time exhibitors at this year’s IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, DAV Cigars is based in Washington, D.C. with a factory operation in Villa Gonzalez, Dominican Republic. The company rolled out a fairly typical booth presentation with several display cases for its cigars, as well as a seating area of a couch and some chairs.

"The booth was manned by co-founders Val Atakhanian and Armen Caprielian, and the pair showed off their five lines of cigars, two of which come in multiple vitolas and three of which are offered in single sizes. DAV Cigars has had its cigars available for about three years in the global market, and says they have accounts in eastern Europe and Russia as well as in select U.S. locations."

"DAV Cigars emerged when two friends followed their passion for cigars while venturing in the Dominican Republic and decided to join forces with a third-generation cigar manufacturer's family.

"Since then, DAV cigars became globally popular due to their exceptional premium blend, paired with the knowledge, expertise, strive for excellence and the vision of its creators.

"Decades of experience, combined with true love and deep understanding of cigars result in the highest level of standard of each DAV hand-rolled cigar.

"Every cigar is created consistent with the techniques passed on from one generation to the next. When each cigar is expertly wrapped in a rich, lustrous natural wrapper, the cigar experience gets kicked up a notch. The superior quality of DAV cigars is ascertained by the highest quality of raw material from proper sources. Consequently, the wrapping, flavor, smoke, burn, and draw always result in absolute perfection." - DAVcigars.com
