The Cohiba Corona Especiales is one of few cigars that can delight the palate of novice cigar smokers and aficionados alike. There is such subtlety and balance to this smoke, wrapped in a cigar that deserves its reputation. 


Cohiba Coronas Especiales Overview

The Cohiba brand was born in 1966 to provide Fidel Castro and the government elite with a private line of luxury cigars. Within a short amount of time, Cohiba cigars were used as diplomatic gifts and their prestige grew around the world. 

With a ring gauge of 38, the Cohiba Coronas Especiales is thinner than most Cohiba productions. This particular cigar was created in 1969, but it was not until 1982 that the cigar traveled off the island of Cuba and was marketed internationally. At 5.9 in length it comes in shorter than the Cohiba Lanceros, but often draws many comparisons due to their tobacco and smoking similarities. 


Smoking a Cohiba Coronas Especiales

The first thing you will notice is the lack of girth. It is visually striking to those who are accustomed to larger ring gauge cigars. The nearly veinless rich tan wrapper adds to the visual appeal and elegant appearance. 

During the first few draws, you will notice an earthy and woody taste that is more dry and bitter than what is to come later. In the meantime, you’ll progress to this sweet spot as the cigar produces an even and efficient burn. 

During the second phase of the cigar, those earthy bitter tones will give way to sweetness, with flavors of vanilla, cocoa, and spice ringing out. During the final third of the cigar, you will notice a rich and deep flavor that accompanies the earthy and sweet for a great smoke, end to end. 

These are all classic Cuban cigar flavors and they float in and out of the palate throughout the smoke. The balance of flavors is superb and it’s this that creates subtlety, as well as making a strong impression on novice and experienced smokers alike. 


Cigar Value

The Cohiba Coronas Especiales is great value for a Cohiba cigar and falls in the middle of the Cohiba price spectrum. More expensive than most, but still less than the Cohiba Esplendidos, it is within reach for a burgeoning aficionado looking to up the quality of what they smoke..
