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.

I was brought up to love sweet desserts by my parents and later on in life this love of the sweet was transfered to my taste in cigars. This cigar is a favourite of mine, the Siglo III is my ultimate dessert cigar with its grilled vanilla, creamy-leather and spicy chocolate aromas. One of my lasting memories of this cigar was at a restaurant in Geneva (where the chocolate is amazing) where I had a chocolate fondant and then I sparked one of these Siglo III's up. The smoke was like a continuation of the dessert, wafts of deep chocolatey cocoa with a hint of chili and a dollop of Gruyere fresh cream. The crisp, silky, glistening wrapper of this cigar reminds me of chocolate glazing! Yep, I am a fan of this cigar and Topcubans.com has a load of them in stock so give 'em a go ! Remember to have a sweet food or Sauterne wine with these Siglo III.
