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 LLaguito 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 the "selection of selection" from the 5 finest Vegas de Primera in San Juan y Martinez and San Luis districts of the Vuelta Abajo zone. 

Uniquely amongst Habanos up to three of Cohiba's filler leaves , the seco, ligero and the rare medio tiempo, undergo an additional fermentation in barrels. This unique process produces a special aroma and flavour you will only find in Cohiba. 

Tasting Notes

Fresh, powerful, aromatic and with the fabulous texture that is the main characteristic of the whole brand. A cigar which exhibits the classic flavours of the Cohiba range.


91 / 100

"...Pigtailed with a rich, oily wrapper. It burns and draws evenly, leaving woody, cedary impressions on the palate along with some leather and sophisticated tobacco flavour..."

I Purchased a box of these in 2018 and recently tried a few and they are very tight on the draw, not enjoyable at all, so Im waiting to get a PerfectDraw draw enhancer when next in stock. Its not my humidor because I have smoked other Cuban cigars from it that have been fine. Hopefully I can enjoy them when I get the enhancer, which Ive read up about and some people use them on all their cigars regradless of the fact if they are plugged or not. Ill reassess my rating after later.

Tasted fine but not especially good. The main problem was that it was so densly packed i got a really poor smoke, had to drag excessively to even get it to burn. Tried both with a cohiba cigar cutter and Cohiba press and used a jet burner for both. Had to repeatedly deal with it canoeing and just gave up after half way. Sad times :(

I shal cut to the chase. Box date: March 2012 Pre light. A firm cigar with much less fragrance out of the box than i'd come to experience from previous cohiba boxes. Nice draw on the cut. On the firm side, but comfortable and not exsessive. Burn / combustion. Sharp as you like, brilliant infact, with a pure white ash! Flavour. Cohiba traditional mixed with cedar and leathery dark chocolate. Aroma. 100% almonds. Lovely!! 9/10. One of my favourite more delicate flavousome Cohibas! Similar to the Siglo ii with added aroma

Sunday afternoon in a frozen back garden in NI I decided to have a post Christmas treat complimented with a mulled wine, I have to say that it was the first time I had one of these Especiales and have to say it was absolutely delightful. It had a superb drag with little effort and burned evenly. Taste of dark chocolate with that smooth and slightly mild, pleasantness that only Cohibas bring. My last cigar was a partagas no4 and it was a bit more work so this was satisfying. I was surprised that for its length it didn't last as long as I thought but perhaps that was just me enjoying its goodness. I will definitely be having one of these again very soon. Thanks Cgars ltd

Castro's favourite and I can see why. Although the draw feels tight the burn is even and its light yet creamy smoke plentiful enough for you to get over this. As far as flavour goes, this cigar exibits the typical Cohiba spice but with a much sweeter chocolate note than in any other Cohiba I've tried. Earthy coffee flavours become prominent after the first 1/3 (following the chocolate 'topping' its like the cappucinno of cigars!). I'd love to be able to say that this is a perfect every day smoke, however at 16 a stick, I'm not that flush... still, this will go down as a firm favourite (hopefully the one I've left in the humidor will be even better).
