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.
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 flavor you will only find in Cohiba.
