Cohiba is top of the line of Cuban cigars and is therefore considered one of the greatest cigar brands in the world. Renowned for producing some of the finest quality cigars available, such as the Behike 56, Cohiba uses only the best tobacco and unique maturation techniques to create their famous cigars. A Cohiba cigar will offer a complex smoke that is medium to full in body.
Cohiba as a brand is fairly unique, in that it began as a national company of Cuba, as opposed to being nationalised from private ownership. In fact, the company was originally the private brand exclusively supplying Fidel Castro with cigars. Cohiba cigars were first released for public sale in 1982, and have since become one of the biggest brands in the cigar world.
