The world of Habano -or Havanas- has always been characterised by a level of exclusivity and sophistication that few products can attain.
The Denominación de Origen Protegida Habanos -Habanos’ protected appellation of Origin- is only granted to the most select brands that are made in Cuba, solely and exclusively with Black Cuban Tobacco which, thanks to an unbeatable climate and the wisdom of the land workers and cigar rollers of the island, has achieved an indisputable standard of prestige. This has all been done by following the strictest standards and with the best leaves selected from the tobacco-growing regions of Cuba.
The World of Habanos S.A.
Habanos S.A. is the Cuban company that commercialises all the Cuban tobacco products all over the world. It is the leading company in the commercialisation of premium cigars and has a presence in over 100 countries on the five continents.
Habanos S.A. promotes 33 brands, among which we can find those of the highest standing in the cigar world: Montecristo, Romeo y Julieta, Partagás, Hoyo de Monterrey and of course, the most emblematic: Cohiba.
Cohiba. The taste of success
Cohiba is the flagship brand of Habanos. It was created for Fidel Castro in 1966 and was presented as an official gift to Diplomats and Heads of State. Since then it has continued being made with leaves from the best refined tobacco plantations of the region of Vuelta Abajo, in the west of Cuba.
The brand name comes from the term which the native Cuban Indians –the Taínos-, gave to the tobacco leaves. So it is therefore the first name of tobacco.
One of its main characteristics is based on the fact that it is the only brand that undergoes a third fermentation in the tobacco used for making it. This process adds even greater balance to the unmistakable taste of Cohiba.
All the Cohiba cigars can be recognised by their distinctive band where the orange, white and black colours stand out. They are all made Totalmente a mano –Totally made by hand- with the best, specially selected leaves.
Cohiba consists of two different lines designed in order to satisfy the most demanding smokers in the world: the Línea Clásica, developed between 1966 and 1989, and the Línea 1492, with its different nuances of taste.
New Cohiba X Anniversary Línea 1492 Humidor
The Línea 1492 was expressly created in 1992 in order to celebrate the fifth centennary of the discovery of tobacco in Cuba by Christopher Colombus. Now, ten years on, and on the occasion of the tenth anniversary of this line, Cohiba, which is always in the frontline of new developments and special series, presents a commemorative Humidor.
With a limited production of 500 units, each case contains a full selection of the Línea 1492: Siglo I, II, III, IV and V, in addition to the new Siglo VI. All of these cigars, made with the best selection of tobacco, are presented with an exclusive band specially created for the occasion.
The new Siglo VI cigar, whose Vitola de Galera –format- is known as Cañonazo, with base measurements of 52 and 150 mm in length, is presented for the first time in this commemorative Humidor.
The New Siglo VI Band
The new Siglo VI, presented now in order to commemorate such a significant date, will subsequently pass into the usual range of Cohiba and will be available in different countries at the start of 2003. As such, it will have limited availability and the usual brand band.
The new Cohiba Siglo VI comes in an exclusive format that will only exist in this Habanos brand. Its big format makes it possible to fully appreciate the aroma and taste of the Línea 1492 with complete intensity.
With its Cohiba Siglo VI, Habanos S.A. continues to offer the most exclusive cigars in the world, made in order to satisfy the most demanding and select smokers: the Cohiba smokers.
The humidor will be available exclusively in “La Casa del Habano” international network in next weeks.
