Cohiba is a premium brand of Cuban cigars. Cohiba cigars were first established in 1966 for Fidel Castro. Originally these cigars were only available as gifts for heads of states and visiting diplomats.
For a long period of time, Cohiba cigars were available in limited quantities and not on the open market.
The name of Cohiba cigars comes from an ancient word Tiano (the twisted bundles of tobacco leaves) originated from Indians who first met the famous explorer Christopher Columbus.
The tobacco for Cohiba is grown on the best five plantations in the Vuelta Abajo region. The leaves for filler are exposed for special selection. The leaves for Cohiba cigar receives additional fermentation in barrels to offset the tar and harmful impurities. This treatment ensures the highest quality of cigars can be produced. Cohiba cigars are rolled by cigar rollers of the highest category in the local El Laguito factory. Compared to many the Cohiba cigars have a mild taste and rich aroma.
