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. 

The Linea Maduro 5 series consists of three sizes each wrapped in a dark maduro leaf which has been specially aged for five years, this line by Cohiba was launched in 2007. 

Tasting Notes

A robusto extra size cigar. What makes these cigars so special lies in the number 5, which flags the five-year aging process to which all their wrappers are subjected.

86 / 100

"...Splotchy and dark, this cigar is rolled with an unevenly coloured wrapper. It's yeasty and bready at first with hints of cloves, caramel and tangy citrus, but the smoke turns bitter on the finish..."

Smoked one of these that was gifted to me back in 2011. Wow.....beautiful cigar. I dont have a direct reference point as it was my first of the Maduro 5s but as a stand alone Cohiba it was exceptional. The sweetness on the palate was immense but beautifully balanced.....there is no substitute for age and quality. One small negative was that the second third burned slightly uneven and I had to re-light a few times but that could have been down to my personal management. I wouldnt hesitate to buy a box of these even at the current prices.

1hr 15 mins of bliss, dry draw raisens and cedar. Even burn quite light, with plenty of smoke. Easy draw. Well worth every penny.

These are one of my favourite cohiba,from the initial light to the very reluctant finish. I've recently spent a few weeks in Cuba with these cigars and found them very enjoyable,I brought ten back with me and only have four left.Having not had any problems with the draw and always a straight burn I will be purchasing more,no questions

This is a very fine cigar if treated correctly, as with any cigar if you let it dry out even a little the smooth flavour will turn into a dry smoke and if you keep them to moist they will end up a struggle to smoke. I am about half way through a 25 box and only had 1 or 2 with a tight draw the rest have been a cigar you would be proud to give to a friend.

The Cohiba Maduro 5 is the cigar that re-introduced back to Cohiba. Too many Cohibas for me are sharp and dry in taste and perhaps not up to the standard they should be. My first Maduro 5 experience was in the smaller size and was a cracking smoke... Normally I prefer a larger ring guage and so purchased a box of the Genios. They did not let me down as they had all the qualities I enjoyed in the smaller size. They have a lovely subtle sweetness to them accompanied by a very moreish saline (salty) taste to them. Its a very smooth smoke but one none the less that should be enjoyed late evening rather then a 'day' cigar. These are on the strong side of medium in flavour. A very worthwhile place to start if you are unfamiliar with the dark maduro wrappers. Enjoy!
