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 smallest of the Siglos, an authentic appetizer. The Siglo line has permitted the Cohiba brand name to pass from tradition to modern times.

90 / 100

"...Gleaming with a golden-brown wrapper, this little corona starts out woody and minty but warms to show a warm walnut character that leads to a mint-chocolate finish..."

I concur with recent disappointed reviews of this offering from Cohiba. My example was nicely aged and I had been looking forward to a half hour of indulgence. In the event it was, well, a non event. Bland and lacking development, my advice is try something else, such as the quietly magnificent Vegas Robaina Familiar. Similar price and far superior.

Somewhat disappointed with this cigar. I had built it up a little I suppose based on the price and brand name. A moderately tight draw just south of unsmokable. No real taste to speak of although it improved very slightly in the second half. Weak pallid smoke and and uneven, lopsided burn. Pairing with Thatchers Summer Haze cider helped a little and a swig after each draw seemed to help out. Way overpriced for the experience but I'm sure I'll try something else from Cohiba in the near future.

Mine had a very tight draw and I didn't think much of the flavour either, really quite bland with not much going on, very narrow. I will purchase again as this could have been due to the tight draw and the fact that the cigar was very obviously overpacked, I thought Cohiba had some of the best quality control in the industry? Never mind, I have a Maduro 5 that will hopefully make up for it. Definitely sample it, I have no doubt that one without these problems would be a great smoke, these things can happen with hand made products of course.

Not a bad smoke but not as good as the bolivar no2 which is the same price and had more flavour and a much longer smooth flavoured smoke. Flavour is a bit on the short side until the last third which is sweet, ash stacks up ok with a good bit of smoke. I'll be sticking with the bolivar much better value for money.

Reviewed by Joe Gellman I was about to grab a Pilsner Urquell from the fridge when I was reminded by my little mind-imp who always tells me when I have screwed up something, that I had promised to do a tasting on a Cohiba. Not my favorite brand due to the inability to get them at a decent price and, if I try to get them from an unknown source, most likely to get a fake. Of course, the fact that the real love of my life, the Lancero, always seems to be an iffy buy, does not help the situation. I went to my study for a Siglo I and had to smile at the fact that these came by way of an unexpected gift. Bloom was evident on every cigar. As with most of the Siglo line, it ain't the prettiest skin in the lot. The robe always reminds me of an aged ingenue, too long in the sun and starlight. [Notice the double entendre'? The wrapper is also known as the robe, and that is what an ingenue would wear, n'est pas?] The cigar is firm, a tad too venous looking for a beauty contest, and made to the perfection required by Cohiba. I cut the perilla with my handy chavetta and get the cedar matches ready. Quickly, I open the Pilsner, take a seat on my deck, and light the cigar. To much dramatic stuff? OK. The cigar has a salty taste before lighting, and smells of sweet, old, wood. The cigar lights well and burns slowly. The first draw emits woodsy aromas with a hint of burning leaves. The ash is deep gray and is rather solid. Since the cigar is a Tres Petit Corona (Perla), I expect there to be little change in the flavors and aromas as I get to the first half of the cigar. Wrong, again, G-Man! Just a few minutes into the cigar I noticed a peppery flavor that melded well with the wood notes. The ash remained on the cigar for the first half, and after breaking it off, was brittle to the touch yet fully consumed. The lightness begins to fade to medium strength just after the halfway marker. By now, I have finished the bottle of Czech beer and need another. I laid the cigar down and rushed to the kitchen for my second bottle, returning in time not to have lost the momentum of the smoke and not having to re-light the cigar. The bitterness of the original Pilsner brew blends well with this cigar. It is long enough for a slow beer or two 10 oz bottles. Either way, I think this beverage is the best compliment for the Siglo I. The Cubans have a name for the way the cigar burns, it is "arder." The combustibility of the cigar is an essential quality which the Cohiba brand guarantees, as long as you buy from a legitimate source. I am getting near the cabo and I notice the cigar has begun to release it's flavors, giving me an explosive (well, in the manner of a firecracker versus a stick of TNT) finish. I suspect the age and bloom have added to the joy of the cigar. I never drink coffee or port with this cigar, preferring the crisp intertwining of the Pilsner and the tang of the spice to add to the event.
