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

The best of the Julieta format. This cigar is rich, generous and of greater strength than it appears at first. Definitely one of the top ten Havanas in this size bracket.


95 / 100

"...Both nuanced and bold, this refined cigar leaves very precise impressions of smoky peanuts, leather and roasted coffee beans on the palate. Sweeter notes of candied citrus and dried fruit balance the savory components. Complex and harmonious..."

Each time I see one of the recent Cohiba vitola close up, I am hypnotized by the glistening, gold-embossed lettering on the new bands. Befitting of "the jewel" of Habanos cigars, this particular band is wrapped around the flagship of the Cohiba brand, the Esplendido.

The wrapper is smooth and almost completely free of visible veins on the surface, which is coloured with a golden-tan shade and a slightly darker bunching of filler leaves at the foot of the cigar. Clipping the opposite end revealed the same familiar pattern of "bunched" filler leaves at the head with immediately revealed the same honey-like, manure aroma of fine quality Cuban tobacco.

Drawing through the cigar before lighting it produced a delightful flavour of creamy, rich tobacco with a barely detectable hint of spice. After evenly heating the foot of the cigar, I placed it in between my lips to savour that first draw of toasted tobacco ... no bitterness, no bite ... just a smooth, creamy flavour reminiscent of the Cohiba blend.

For such a young cigar, I expected a slight bitterness at the start; however, from the first to the last draw, I found nothing but pleasant, rich flavors with subtle complexities as the flavors shifted ever so slightly from buttery to almost sweet, bringing back memories of the butter-cream icing spice cakes my mother used to bake for my birthday each year.

The cigar burned perfectly with a wonderful draw, producing mouthful after mouthful of soft, balanced flavors. The dark gray ash was highlighted with pale white streaks, as the first fragment dropped off after about two to three inches.

Although the underlying creamy flavors continued to develop throughout the entire cigar, subtle flavour changes became apparent at every inch or two. Toasted tobacco flavors and a mild nuttiness appeared and disappeared as the smoke entered my mouth and left through my nostrils.

I thought the North Texas heat (about 100 degrees on my back porch) would surely have a detrimental affect on my experience, yet I was so wrong. Even as the sweat drizzled from my brow, I continued to enjoy the full, rich flavors of this wonderful Habanos. Not wanting to put this cigar down, I continued smoking until my lips began to heat up and my finger-tips slightly singed.

I fully understand how the Cohiba Esplendido is one of the most sought after cigars in the world. As delightful as this cigar was at such an early age, I can only imagine how sublime it will be after several years of aging. If you have never tried one of these fabulous cigars, I encourage you to try one when the opportunity arises. You will not be disappointed.

Recently I purchased a 3 pack of Cohiba Esplendidos. The packaging is quite nice a convenient way to bring a few excellent cigars to a extraordinary event such as a wedding, which is what I did. After the cocktail hour a few drinks and a fine meal I settled down to a glass of fine port and drew my package of 3 Cohibas, the ooohs and ahhhs and bulging eyes could be seen and heard around me. I opened this package of tasty treats and with one jerk of my hand slid one up out from the box.

It was such a lovely sight to behold. I rolled the cigar in my hand a bit finding no soft or hard spots it seemed flawless to the touch, I then proceeded to smell the length of the cigar to find it had a sweet pleasing aroma, I only hoped that it would taste as fine. After carefully cutting the cigar I lit a small cedar strip off the candle which laid on the table and ever so slowly rotated the foot of this beauty slightly below the flame toasting it into a warm glow.

My first draw on this cigar was like a dream, it was not overpowering yet not mild by any standard, full with flavor rich with hints of leather and cedar and a slight sweetness like the aroma I had experienced earlier, the cigar held a metallic colored grey ash almost beyond belief with a perfect razor sharp burn. As I continued to enjoy this fine treat others had complimented and inquired about the sweetness of the aroma from my cigar .at the halfway point, the flavor of this beauty began to develop into a slightly stonger taste with hints of chocolate along with a creaminess which was building up in the back of my throat, when the cigar had reached about two thirds I hated to let it go out but didn't want to ruin my experience with this fine cigar , its finish was nothing short of spectacular leaving me satisfied yet longing for another, cake was now being served but, I had to pass on that, as another Esplendido was awaiting me in my suit pocket.

I smoked these cigars when I was on holiday in Cuba and they were fantastic.

Man oh man what a smoke, ordinarily slightly out of my price range but definitely the Rolls Royce of cigars. Got 5 of these beauties as Christmas present couldn't resist and broke after 3 weeks in humidor, although humidor set correctly saw white marks and panic set in, fear of miold! Old hand assured me it was blush, everything positive has been said about these, very smooth, great taste and aroma, lasted almost two hours savoured every moment, accompanied by several glasses Bushmills 10 year old single malt. Dear C Gars you should consider stocking fine Irish whiskers as they are superior to Scotch.

Smoked a few of these and not enough smoke for me. Compared to other cigars such as; Partagas, RYJ and Bolivar, Cohiba seem to have the most construction issues. Taste okay, but I am not convinced they are worth the premium price over other Cubans.

From the moment you light it to the moment it dies this is a truely magnificient smoke. An hour of pure bliss, this is not one to be rushed sit back and savour the array of flavours that come to you.
