When Columbus landed in the Caribbean in 1492, he was greeted by Cuba's original inhabitants, the Tainos, who delighted in smoking bunches of dried leaves they called "cohiba." The Tainos love affair with quality tobacco soon spread to become the world's love affair with Cuban cigars.
The Cohiba cigar brand celebrates its 50th Anniversary in 2016 as one of the most beloved premium brands. The original Cohiba cigar line was made expressly for Fidel Castro and other significant government officials under strict regulations and intense secrecy on 10 separate farms. By the 1980s Cuban Cohibas became cherished diplomatic gifts for foreign dignitaries and accounted for more revenue than other cigar brands internally. Read More
Meanwhile in the US, a second "Cohiba" name was trademarked in 1978 by General Cigar. The original seeds came from Cuba, but after years of research, the final tobaccos and the blend of this new Cohiba was established in Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic. Soon high-quality General Cigar Cohibas with a distinctive red dot in the middle of the "O" in the Cohiba name on their label became available to aficionados in the U.S.
Cohibas are a perfect fit for any special occasion or simply as a great afternoon or evening smoke due to their medium to full strength flavor profiles. Instantly recognizable, Cohibas offer a truly unique smoking experience and their quality is evident in every puff. Thompson Cigars carries five lines of the General Cigar Cohiba family. In addition to the general Cohiba line, we have the signature Cohiba Red Dot line of medium strength cigars. The Cohiba Black line offers something for those with a taste for the rich Maduro-style wrappers while the Cohiba Edicion Diamante is a rare specimen featuring a Cameroon wrapper that is over 35 years old. Cohiba Nicaragua presents fuller-flavored cigars using some of the finest leaves from this up-and-coming region.
