Cohiba is an ancient Taino Indian word for the bunches of tobacco leaves. Today this name is the flagship brand of Habanos. The leaves for Cohiba are the “selection of the selection” from the 5 finest Vegas de Primera in San Juan y Martínez and San Luis districts of the Vuelta Abajo zone. It was created in 1966 for President Fidel Castro himself and was made at the then top secret at El Laguito factory. At first, it was only seen outside Cuba as gifts for heads of state and visiting diplomats.
Since 1982 Cohiba has been available in limited quantities to the open market. Four lines make the brand exciting.

The iconic Siglo VI, was added in 2002, ten years after of the creation of this line called 1942 or Siglos. This cigar gives around one hour of pleasure, having chocolatey, nutty smoke balanced with botanical notes. Smoking time 50 minutes.
