Cohiba Siglo III Cigars
Cohiba is the flagship brand of Habana, available to the open market since 1982 in limited quantities.
The Cohiba brand was created in 1966 exclusively for President Fidel Castro, and now has become the most famous Cuban cigar brand globally. Cohiba has literally gone from gifts for heads of state and visiting diplomats, to a cigar of the finest quality and status.
The name Cohiba derives from an ancient Taino Indian word for the bunches of tobacco leaves that Columbus first saw being smoked by the original inhabitants of Cuba – the origins of Habano.
The leaves for Cohiba are of only the finest 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.
