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.

Rick swears by these Siglo II's and I can understand what he is getting at, yes the Siglo II is a bit of an outsider in the Cohiba family, yet they are unique and feisty which is what Rick and I both like. Individuality in a stick is important and the private preference of the individual is a strong determining factor in the choice of a cigar. If you like silky, oily wrappers and a spicy woodiness in the smoke then this is the cigar for you. Needless to say Rick and I indulge in a smoke of these Siglo II whenever we get the opportunity, Rick and I disagree a lot at work but one thing we agree about is that the Siglo II compliments a good Cognac and a rich meal like a dream.
