Cohiba 1966 Edición Limitada 2011 is a masterpiece released to celebrate 45th anniversary of Cohiba. Derived from unique and elegant leaves of San Juan y Martinez and San Luis plants in Vuelta Abajo region. It also has a unique format called “Cañonazo Especial” wrapped in a dark wrapper with a complete hand dressing. When it comes to taste we can summarize with only one sentence; probably the best Cuban cigar.
Cohiba is the flagship brand of Habanos.
It was created in 1966 for President Fidel Castro himself and was made at the then top secret, but now world famous, 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.
The name is an ancient Taino Indian word for the bunches of tobacco leaves that Columbus first saw being smoked by the original inhabitants of Cuba - the earliest known form of a Habano.
The leaves for Cohiba are the "selection of selection" from the 5 finest Vegas de Primera in San Juan y Martinez and San Luis districts of the Vuelta Abajo zone.
Uniquely amongst Habanos up to three of Cohiba's filler leaves , the seco, ligero and the rare medio tiempo, undergo an additional fermentation in barrels. This unique process produces a special aroma and flavour you will only find in Cohiba.
