Description

In 2016, the Cohiba Medio Siglo was the first addition to La Linea 1492 since the Siglo VI regally emerged on the scene in 2002. Its size is inspired by the shortest (Siglo I) and widest (Siglo VI) cigars in the Linea. Released to celebrate 50 years since the birth of Cohiba, 'Medio Siglo' translates to English as 'half-century'.

Cohiba is the flagship brand of Habanos S.A. and was originally created in 1966 for the late President of Cuba, Fidel Castro. They were 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 and it was not until 1982 that Cohiba was made available in limited quantities to the open market. The name “Cohiba” is a 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 the cigar. The leaves used for rolling Cohiba vitolas are the “selection of the selection” from the five finest plantations in the San Juan y Martinez and San Luis districts of the Vuelta Abajo zone which is widely regarded as the finest tobacco growing land/soil in the world. Uniquely amongst Havanas up to three of Cohiba’s filler leaves, the seco, ligero and the rare medio tiempo (the latter of which is used only in the Behike range), undergo an extra fermentation in barrels, which adds smoothness to the blend.
