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 Talismán is one of the most eagerly anticipated cigar releases for many years and joins a group of iconic Cohiba vitolas that have been launched within the Habanos Limited Edition concept. This includes previous releases such as the Cohiba Sublimes (2004), Cohiba 1966 (2011) and the most recent Cohiba Supremos (2014). The Talismán is destined to become a firm favourite and will soon sit proudly in the Cohiba Limited Edition hall of fame.

Measuring an impressive 6 1/8“ (154 mm) x 54 ring gauge, these stunning cigars are presented as a box of 10 in the traditional Cohiba style of a varnished slide lid box. The blend matches the flavour profile of Cohiba’s La Línea Clasica range (medium to full) with the head of each cigar finished with a “pigtail” found on La Línea Behike.

All the tobaccos used in a Limited Edition cigar are aged for at least two years. However, in addition to this the Secoand Ligero leaf in Cohiba cigars undergo an ‘extra fermentation’. This may last as long as eighteen months and is conducted at the factory in cedar barrels. Cohibas are the only Cuban cigars to undergo this process and it provides all of their cigars with a unique smoothness. The Maduro wrapper leaf that has been used to dress this cigar provides just a touch of sweetness that plays across the top of the palate.

Tasting Notes

"Each puff of this dark, pigtailed cigar unfolds layers of honey, minerals and almond notes before bolder impressions of cocoa powder and oak emerge..."

I was fortunate enough to be given one of these by a wholesaler friend of mine today. Was it good? yes, quite outstanding even though it was but a few months old .Almost perfection itself and the burn, taste and mellow strength ,although a little young will surely develop into one of the classics. Will I buy any? I doubt it unless of course I win the lottery as there are many others that you can buy for much less cost and enjoy just as much without the pain in your wallet. The temptation of course is to buy and smoke but if you do have some spare cash to buy and lay down then do so as in a few years you will have a Cuban classic on your hands .I'm off to buy a lottery ticket !!
