The Cohiba Esplendidos is the ultimate manifestation of a Cuban cigar. A big spicy beauty that is there to be enjoyed when time is not a priority. Nearly 50 years old, this cigar is there for those most special of occasions.
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 witnessed 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 addded 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 a silkiness to the blend that leads to the unrepeatable Cohiba experience.
The Esplendidos is nuanced and bold, with complex notes of peanuts, leather and roasted coffee beans, resulting in an unforgettable smoke that lives up to its prestigious name.
