History of COHIBA

In 1492, during Columbus's first voyage to the "new world", he visited the island of Cuba. His sailors were introduced to "Cohíba" by the island natives, a bunch of dried leaves that were smoked in a pipe called a "Tobacco". In 1982, 3 types of Cohíba Cuban cigars were introduced to non-diplomats: the Lanceros, the Coronas Especiales and the Panetelas. 3 more vitolas were added to the brand in 1989: the Espléndidos, the Robustos and the Exquisitos, completing what is known as "La Línea Clásica". 5 more vitolas were added in 1992 creating the "Linea 1492": the Siglo I, II, III, IV and V. Cohíba remains the "King of the Cubans". Only the finest tobacco leaves are used to create the various types of Cohíba cigars. A distinct bean taste has been attributed to Cohíbas, however I would say the common factor amongst the Cohíba family is the strong nature of all the cigars. This is not a beginners brand.

All hail to the to King! This Robustos is the perfect example of great quality primary materials, incredible construction and perfect balance between power and flavor. This cigar is so clever, it creates multiple textures in the smoke yet retains that special pocket sized package. How can you get so much variety in such a small stick? The class of the blend master and the Torcedors wily hands are the determining factors. How does the blend master throw in that hint of clover among the base flavor of wood and spice? He knows the ratio of ligero and seco leaves and painstakingly monitors the introduction of the bunch to the rest of the cigar. How can some fermented leaves, some vegetable glue and the hands of a human being create such harmony in a smoke? That is when you know you are smoking a Habano... says "All hail to the King"!
