Cohiba is the flagship brand of Habanos. It was created in 1966 for President Fidel Castro himself and was made at the then top secret, but now world famous. El Laguito factory. At first, it was only seen outside Cuba as gifts for heads of state and visiting diplomats. Since 1982 Cohiba has been available in limited quantities to the open market. The name is an ancient Taino Indian word for the bunches of tobacco leaves that Columbus first saw being smoked by the original inhabitants of Cuba – the earliest known form of a Habano.The leaves for Cohiba are “selection of the selection” from the finest tobaccos of the Vuelta Abajo zone. Cohiba is made with tobaccos specially aged for a minimum of two and five years.
It encompasses four different lines. Each line includes different sizes and offers medium to full bodied cigars.
