Until the summer of 2003, it seemed as if Cuba was going to completely ignore the fat cigar trend. Then Habanos S.A. introduced the Cohiba Siglo VI in the United Kingdom. Dubbed the cañonazo, or "cannon shot," in Cuban cigar factories, the cigar was a new size for Cuba, just under 6 inches long and an impressive 52 ring gauge. The cigar brims with strong and intense flavors, loaded with notes of leather and coffee. It's a full-bodied smoke not meant for an inexperienced palate. Cuba tried to replicate its success the following year when it introduced the Montecristo Edmundo, a bit shorter and slightly fatter than the Siglo VI, but it failed to live up to the high standards set by the Cohiba. The Siglo is the best of modern-day Cuban cigars.
The Cohiba Siglo Cigars are part of the 1492 Cohiba Line, five sizes of which were launched in 1992 to commemorate the 500th Anniversay of Columbus’s arrival in Cuba before one further size, the iconic Siglo VI, was added in 2002.
Cohiba is the flagship brand of Habanos.
It was created in 1966 for President Fidel Castro himself and was 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.
Since 1982 Cohiba has been available in limited quantities to the open market.
