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.

COHIBA Siglo I Box of 5

Siglo I
  • Ring Gauge: 40
  • Cigar length: 102 mm / 4.02'
  • Strength: Medium
  • Vitola: Petit Corona

Stress, irritation and anxiety, you can leave it all behind with this handy Très Petit Coronas. This is a perfect cigar for a break between meetings, or as a digestive after a light lunch or simply whilst reading the morning paper. Clever and concise construction mixed with rapid burning tobacco ensure a steady and trouble free burn resulting in this little beauty being smoked in 30 minutes. My reservation with a cigar this size has always been "can the stick develop any diversity in flavor and will there be any room for progression in such a little stogie"? Luckily with this Siglo I we are treated to diligence and skill, this quick mover is loaded with flavors of wood and spice climaxing with hints of caramel.
