The longest of the Cohiba's original three sizes created in 1966 and one the cigar of choice for Cuba's late president, Fidel Castro who also used to given them as personal gifts.
The unique extra fermentation that is conducted on the Seco and Legero of all Cohibas lasts for eighteen months and is conducted at the factory in cedar barrels. This extra age creates a unique taste. The famous Cohiba flavour is most often described as ‘Grassy’, although others have noticed tones of vanilla, cocoa and coffee. It is often remarked upon how this extra fermentation makes the taste ‘smoother’ and more refined while retaining a depth and character that is entirely distinct. A prime example of a modern Habanos
In 2011 this cigar was given a Cigar Aficionado rating of 94 and they noted that it had “a complex progression of flavours, starting with cinnamon and nutmeg intonations that lead to a robust and profound coffee flavour that lasts on the finish.”
