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

Rich in that famous Cohiba spice throughout. Excellent draw and excellent combustion. Its a champion to be enjoyed with a nice glass of single malt or cognac.

I agree with previous criticism of the Lanceros. I bought five well aged examples, gave them a few months in the humidor, then tried one. I like it and ... nothing happened. The foot burned fine, but no appreciable smoke in the mouth. So, I tried a second: same result. Frustrated, I broke the rest in half and binned them. There are so many excellent vitolas made by Cohiba, I wonder why they persist wth this one. It stands to reason that a long, slim cigar should be perfectly constructed, as a little smoke has to travel a long way to the head. Until these construction issues are addressed by the factory, I won't buy them again.

Not impressed, seriously plugged, had to cut a further inch off the damn thing after lighting just to get any smoke from it. tasted nice once I'd done that, but for a 24.49 cigar just not worth buying if there is a risk of getting another one like this.

Whilst I am a rather patient cigar smoker, and like to enjoy the experience, the Lancero has been a thorough and utter disappointment... Hard to get any flavour out of, flat, lacking meatiness not to mention the aroma. Never again...

You can get the odd one like that, but then again you get that with ALL Havanas. When aged for a few months these cigars are actually a great smoke.
