In 1492, during Columbus’ first journey to the “new world”, he visited the island of Cuba. His men were introduced to “Cohiba” by the island inhabitants, a pile of dried leaves that were smoked in a pipe called “Tabaco” aka Cohiba Cuban Cigars.
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.
