In 1982, three types of Cuban Cohiba cigars were introduced to non-diplomats: the Lanceros, the Coronas Especiales, and the Panetelas. Three additional vitolas were added to the brand in 1989: the Splendid, the Robust and the Exquisite, completing what is known as “The Classic Line”.
Five more vitolas were added in 1992, creating the “1492 Line”: the I, II, III, IV, and V Century. Cohiba remains the “King of the Cubans”. Only the best tobacco leaves are used to create various types of Cohiba cigars. A distinctive flavor has been attributed to Cohiba beans, however, I would say that the common factor among the Cohiba family is the strong nature of all cigars. This is not a brand for beginners.
