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

One of the best of its format. This cigar is creamy yet spicy and always has great construction.

Just smoking one now. First impressions are that it looks good, feels great in hand. Even burn with a mild flavour. The draw, however, is terrible. Straight cut and now even prodded through to help. I held off Cohiba, due to it being a major brand, sometimes these run off established reputation. I am majorly disappointed and think this will be my last for a while. I duly hope that this is a bad roll but compared to lesser brands, this is no way a quality cigar that I expected. I understand this is probably a mid low end of their range but, for the money, is no excuse for such a prestigious name.

I Enjoyed this cigar emencley on a sunday evening with a large single Malt whiskey, true to Cohiba form these cigars were perfect golden brown 42 gauge beauties, i left them to rest in humidor for a few days before smoking and was not disappointed, the Siglo 3 had a good even burn throughout with an easy draw giving plenty of aroma from the rich smoke filling the evening air, this cigar smoked well throughout with the woody start leading into more spice in heart of the cigar, with a nice black ring ahead of the dark ash suggested a good oil content and grown in great soil. These will be a permanent addition to my Humidor along with their little brothers the Siglo 2s again not disappointed with Cohiba range simply excellent experience start to finish.

Reviewed by Elliot Blum (June 2000) Part of the mystique of the Cohiba line is its distinctive look, taste, and aroma. The Siglo III's that I received were perfect examples. The chestnut golden wrapped triplets measured an exact 6-1/8" with a 42 ring gauge. No blemishes, no veining, and a beautifully tipped triple cap hallmarks the impeccable craftsmanship of the cigar maker. To my delight, all three bands were loose indicating proper storage and sufficient aging. They were ready to be smoked. I decided to start my Saturday morning with a fresh brewed cup of Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee and a Siglo III. The perfect time to savor the famed unique flavor of this Cohiba. From the start, the fresh taste of Spanish cedar filled my mouth with only a gentle pull. A perfect draw on a Corona Grande is a compliment to the skill of the torcedor. Even being outside, the redolence of the Siglo was quite discernible. Not strong, but gracefully filling the air with its pleasant woody aroma. As the smoking progressed, woody notes began to give way to a gentle spiciness that had definite undertones of coffee bean. This cigar was proving to be a perfect match with the subtle flavor of the Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee. A rich black ring preceded the gray black ash of the Siglo. This cigar was loaded with oil. Its black ash indicated that the tobacco was grown in the richest of soils with a high mineral content. Normally, I smoke larger cigars, but to my pleasant surprise this cigar had complex and rich flavor. Even to the end, there was no hint of bitterness. The beauty of the artful roller was demonstrated in the draw and the consistent burning. The Corona Grande was a perfect size for a morning cigar and the Siglo III was a perfect compliment to the Blue Mountain coffee. Whether it be the triple fermenting, the secret blending, or the choice of the finest tobaccos in Cuba, the Siglo III is an outstanding cigar for those desiring a rich, medium smoke in the Corona Grande size.

Reviewed by Rob Keeney (March 2002) Just when I thought the holidays were over, another package arrived..... from MO! I separated the Siglo IIs from the packing and placed them in a humidor to rest for several days. It looked like the postman had sat on the package, but the cigars were not damaged. I had never smoked this petite corona before and it took a lot of willpower to keep from lighting one immediately. I planned on writing a review on each of the three cigars, but that would only be a waste of space. They were identical in every way.... as they should be. Before lighting a cigar, I like to inspect it closely. The golden brown wrappers were smooth & dry. Pre-light draw was perfect, despite the slight postman's butt-pressing. The cigars lit and burned effortlessly. The smooth draw allowed for volumes of smoke. A slightly dry taste at the start blossomed into a sweet woody flavor. At the half way point, I noticed a spicier flavor developing. The Siglo II never reached the spiciness of the many Siglo Is I've smoked, but that's not what I was looking for. I nubbed each one of the samples in about 50 minutes and am anticipating smoking plenty more of these in the future. Thank you Cgars LTD for the chance to participate in your fine taste test
