Cohiba - probably the most important name in cigars, not just in Cuba but in the world.
Cohiba cigars are those that once Cuban President, Fidel Castro, handed out as gifts to diplomatic figures. The name Cohiba is actually derived from the Taino word for Tobacco and the Cohiba Cigar itself was something very close to President Castro’s heart. An icon if you will, and a symbol of ‘the-best-of the-best’ of all cigars.
and when you think of Cuban cigars you think of Cohiba."
The tobacco used for Cohiba cigars is harvested from only first-class fields - aka: Vegas Finas de Primera. There are ten fields that produce tobacco for Cohiba cigars. It is said that tobacco leaves from only five fields are used, due to the strict and high quality control measures.
What makes Cohiba Cigars so great though, is the secret of Fermentation, where all other Cuban Cigars (excluding the Trinidad) have tobacco which has been fermented twice before aging, the world renowned Cohiba Cigars have a third level of fermentation, making them not only rich in flavour but incredibly smooth.
