Distributor: Habanos S. A.
Arguably the most famous cigar brand in the world, Cohiba was created as a personal smoke of Fidel Castro in 1966. Originally available only as gifts of the Cuban government, the brand was launched in 1982 in Spain. The brand sells for a premium over other Cuban cigars, and its fame and price makes it an alluring target for counterfeiters. Habanos added the Maduro 5 line to Cohiba in 2007, and in February 2010, Cohiba Behike, which are a trio of cigars that have pigtail caps a bit of medio Tiempo tobacco in them, made their debut.
