In 2016 Cohiba celebrated its 50th Anniversary. It was decided that a new size (viltola) would be added to the La Linea 1492 range. The new cigar was christened the MEDIO SIGLO.
Literally ‘the half century’, the Cohiba Medio Siglo is the first addition to this exclusive marque since the Siglo VI was added in 2002.
This cigar is currently only available in small quantities.
Cohiba is the premier brand of Habanos. It was initiated in 1966 for Fidel Castro himself and was made at the now world renowned El Laguito factory.
Initially it was only found outside Cuba as gifts for heads of state and visiting diplomats. From 1982 Cohiba has been available in the open market. Only three sizes where made available, the Lancero, the Corona Especial, and the Panatela.
In 1989 three more vitolas, were added; the Robusto, the Exquisito, and the Espléndido. These six are referred to as the Línea Clásica.
In 1992 Habanos SA launched a new range of sizes, the Línea 1492. To celebrate Christopher Columbus and his voyage to the Americas, with each size referring to a hundred years since Columbus’ discovery. The range constituted the Siglo I, Siglo II, Siglo III, Siglo IV, and Siglo V, with a Siglo VI added in 2002.
Cohiba Maduro 5 was launched in 2007.
Alone amongst any other Cuban Cigar, two of Cohiba’s filler leaves, the seco and ligero, experience a third fermentation in barrels. This creates silkiness to the blend that leads to the unrepeatable Cohiba experience.
