In the cigar boom of 2000, Habanos SA introduced the Cuban Limited Editions Series for their premium brands. This series of cigars comprises of vitolas not in current production. Initially, the cigars were manufactured using two year old aged wrapper from the upper level of the plant to produce a unique darker color. Since 2007 all of the tobacco (wrapper, binder, & filler) is aged for two years. The 2001 edition were not released until early to mid 2002. There was Also a 2001 Limited Edition Vegas Robaina Prominent gifted to attendees at the 2002 Habano Festival to celebrate the 5th Anniversary of the Vegas Robaina brand. Only 800 of these cigars were produced.
In 2002 there were no Limited Edition releases. This was probably due to the late release of the 2001 Limited Edition cigars and the lack of suitable two-year old wrapper tobacco, as Habanos SA may have underestimated the success of the Limited Edition concept. In 2006 (the fifth anniversary of the series) three of the most popular Limited Edition cigars were re-issued.
